Publisher Description

"This is women's fiction at its finest ... a wonderfully satisfying story ... touching, tender, and meticulously researched" Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies and The Husband's Secret

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Good Sister and The Mother-in-Law with new novel The Younger Wife out now.

In a family of midwives, some secrets are too big to keep hidden ...

Neva Bradley, a third-generation midwife, is determined to keep the details surrounding her own pregnancy - including the identity of the baby's father - hidden from her family and co-workers for as long as possible.
Her mother, Grace, cannot let this secret rest, even while her own life begins to crumble around her.

For Floss, Neva's grandmother and a retired midwife, Neva's situation thrusts her back 60 years in time to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter's - a secret which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all.

Heartwarming and Moving

This is the first novel I have read from Sally I think her writing is brilliant, well detailed and moving. Secrets of Midwives was not what I had expected but I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
