The Ship’s Midwife, by Peta Miller

Cover of The Ship's Midwife, by Peta Miller.

I recommend this as a good read and another book bringing to life as part of our history. It is the story of a journey to Australia on a sailing boat in the 1850’s. There are different characters from different walks of life, all with their own reasons for being on board. Sarah is the hero, as she helps with deliveries and tries to stop the spread of typhus. There are stories of love, loss, and triumph within adversity.

3.5/5 Stars
