Sofort lieferbar (Download)
BeschreibungAt the turn of the last century, on a dark, bitterly cold winter's night in rural Quebec, a stranger comes to midwife Clara Castonguay's door. A woman is in labor and Clara is needed. The stranger is unlike any woman Clara has ever met and something about her brooks no disobedience, but when the stranger orders Clara's daughter, Millie, to accompany them, Clara balks. This is not the path she wants for her daughter.
But Millie has her own ideas, and soon she and Clara are trudging dark, snow-clad country roads, heading for a woman whose baby is coming too soon. Before the night ends, Clara and Millie will face death and life, and make decisions that will change both their lives.
