    Story
    "Not Bad, Not Good"

    I found the premise of this story very intriguing and I loved the setting. But I found the main character quite unevenly written. As a midwife working with the poor at that particular time, I found her naivety pretty hard to swallow.

    The murder mystery structure itself was competent, but I found that most of the characters were, like the main one, conveniently changeable to fit the plot.

    It wasn't truly awful. It wasn't great. But the narration is excellent and makes the best of a mediocre story.

    Story
    "Story good, narration less so"

    In general, I have enjoyed this series, written by Victoria Thompson, about midwife Sarah Brandt and the various people associated with her (policeman Frank Malloy, and two young foster daughters she has rescued in previous books). But I have found recent books to be uneven in both writing and narration. This one is actually quite good, though.

    Happy to say that I think the author has done a very good job with this story--it held my interest throughout. But I don't think the narration was up to snuff. Suzanne Toren did a good job of separating voices--it was always clear who was speaking. But her voice for Frank Malloy was grating and (to me) left him sounding unlikeable (and he's actually one of my favorite characters in the story).

    This is a pretty good story in which Sarah is called to deliver a baby in a brothel, and she learns that the mother is not there by choice, and gets involved in trying to rescue her--and of course, this leads to her typical adventures, murders, working with Malloy to try to solve them--per the usual adventures in this series.

    I think it is a fairly good series--a couple earlier ones had left me wondering if both author and narrator(s) were slipping, but the story in this one is engaging, much like the earlier ones in the series. I just wish the narrator had done a better job with Malloy--since he is a major character. Still, I recommend this book.

    "murder on sister's row."

    loved the story! Malloy has slowly grown in morals since we started this journey. Sarah's mother has had her eyes opened to a few things. good book. I enjoyed it completely.

    Story
    "unusual setting and characteristion"

    I enjoyed the story , it was set in unexpected surroundings and a time period I'm not so familiar with. Unfortunately, having a female narrator was not a good idea; she tries hard but just cannot carry the male parts off so they sound forced and unnatural. Not sure I can cope with listening to her in another adaptation.
