7/20/2016  The Midwife of Hope River by Patricia Harman. This was in my head every time I put it down. Taking place in poverty stricken West Virginia during the Depression, the twice widowed (sort of) Patience, is delivering babies for anyone who needs her, from the wealthy White, to the poorest unemployed, to Black families whom the KKK wouldn't want her near. 9 out of 10.  I could reread it tomorrow, a recommendation I've rarely made.
