The Secrets of Midwives is a powerful story about the buried secrets three generations of women are forced to confront. From Sally Hepworth, the number one bestselling author of The Mother-In-Law and The Family Next Door.
'Fiction at its finest' - Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies.
Neva Bradley was going to tell her family that she was pregnant – eventually. The discovery that Neva, a third-generation midwife, is six months pregnant is a surprise for everyone, but her stubborn refusal to identify the father is the greater shock. What is she hiding, and why?
Her mother, Grace, cannot let this secret rest, even while her own life begins to crumble around her – a scandal that she must keep from her husband at all costs.
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 . . .
