On a balmy midsummer's evening in 1923, a young woman - foreign, dishevelled and heavily pregnant - is found unconscious just off the railway tracks in the tiny logging community of Woody Creek. The town midwife, Gertrude Foote, is roused from her bed when the woman is brought to her door. Try as she might, Gertrude is unable to save her, but the baby lives.

Rarely does a story make me laugh, cry, steam with anger, and feel homesick all within its pages. This was just such a story and one of the most touching I have ever heard. Highly, highly recommended!!
