The Birth House: A Novel by Ami McKay
This is one of the best books that I have ever read.
I hated to finish it. It is a compelling story of a girl, a village, a family. It is a time of change for women.It is the story of a wise women, generous and loving.
Dora will be you, your daughter, your mother and your teacher. You will feel that you know her, or wish that you did. Marie.. so much wisdom, love and compassion. Knowledge passed down through a family. Magic implied, healing a gift she gives generously. You will not just read this story, you will fall into it....and when it is over, you will wish for more.
Buy it. Read it.
