Delivering the Truth
A Quaker Midwife MysteryBook - 2016
Quaker midwife Rose Carroll hears secrets and keeps conƯfiƯdences as she attends births of the rich and poor alike in an 1888 Massachusetts mill town. When the town|s world-famed carƯriage indusƯtry is threatƯened by the work of an arsonƯist, and a carƯriage facƯtory owner|s adult son is stabbed to death with Rose's own knitting needle, she is drawn into solvƯing the mysƯtery. Things get dicey after the same owner|s misƯtress is also murƯdered, leavƯing her one-week-old baby withƯout a mother. The Quaker poet and abolitionist John Greenleaf Whittier helps Rose by lending words of advice and support. While strugƯgling with being less than the perƯfect Friend, Rose draws on her strengths as a counselor and probƯlem solver to bring two murƯderƯers to justice before they destroy the town|s carriage industry and the people who run it.
