Midwives by Chris Bohjalian
This is the story of a birth attended by an experienced midwife going tragically wrong. The story revolves around the incident, the trial, and the immediate aftermath. This is definitely a “moral story” where a series of decisions can be considered from many different angles and the lines between right and wrong are extremely blurry.
I enjoyed the point of view of the story – all is told by the daughter of the midwife. She is especially nosy, which is a wonderful thing for us, because we know all that she knows, and she knows quite a lot.
