Amazing book about a woman's journey and race relations during the depression. A must read for women's health providers.

Promising start, but got predictable at the end
Where does The Midwife of Hope River rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Top quarter, but it must be taken into account that I've listened to a lot of Audible books.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Midwife of Hope River?
I enjoyed the stories of the babies she delivered, but I got tired of every single mother saying, "My baby!" when handed her child.
Which scene was your favorite?
I don't know that I had a favorite, but the final scene was too contrived. The author could've drawn the ending out a little more, which would have been a lot more satisfactory.
If you could take any character from The Midwife of Hope River out to dinner, who would it be and why?
I guess the main character, Patience Murphy. The book focuses on her more than anyone else.
Any additional comments?
It's a good book, and I started out loving it. I don't regret the time I invested, but the final scene made me angry.
