Summary:

On a dark night in 1775, Lizzie Boylston is awakened by the sound of cannons. From a hill south of Boston, she watches as fires burn in Charlestown, in a battle that she soon discovers has claimed her husband’s life. Alone in a new town, Lizzie grieves privately but takes comfort in her deepening friendship with Abigail Adams. Soon, word spreads of Lizzie’s extraordinary midwifery and healing skills, and she begins to channel her grief into caring for those who need her. But when two traveling patriots are poisoned, Lizzie finds herself with far more complicated matters on her hands—she suspects a political plot intended to harm Abigail and her family. Determined to uncover the truth, Lizzie becomes entangled in a conspiracy that could not only destroy her livelihood—and her chance at finding love again—but also lead to the downfall of a new nation.

    Lovedthe book "Midwife's Revolt" except for two sticking points. The title is not right for the book. The book. Onto yes to refer to women's labour.as a "sickness". Although the author may not be aware, she has a very feminist hand. So these slips were a little nails on a chalkboard. But the book delivers a close up view of the women of the American Revolution in a similar but more I depth way than Diana Galbadon. narration was excellent
