Once Upon A Time: Red’s Untold Tale

I know, I know, we’re already a 1/4 of the way into the new year and I’m only just making my first post – shame on me! But I am happy to be getting into the swing of it again! ๐Ÿ™‚

So today I’m going to be reviewing Red’s Untold Story by Wendy Toliver.

The Secrets of Midwives by Sally Hempworth

Title: The Secrets of Midwives
Author: Sally Hempworth
Published: 2015
Pages: 320
Genre: fiction

The Secrets of Midwives in an extraordinary second novel written by talented Australian author Sally Hempworth. What’s even more extraordinary is that Sally is NOT a midwife! Yet it is clear that she has done a vast amount of research which has paid off. To readers who have no medical knowledge it really does sound like it’s written by someone who has worked in the profession. But do not let that put you off, as the novel is easy to understand and does not get bogged down in medical terms.
