Touching story  Aug 3, 2008
I'm an older guy, and I don't remember why I first read this story about 15 years ago, but I have read it every few years since, and I can never get through it without tears towards the end. It is a lovely and very touching inside view of a young woman's personal Odyssey through the rigors and perils of learning her art in Scotland to practicing it among the community of Amish in Pennsylvannia. I was at my wife's side when our two sons were born, perhaps that is why her story always touches me so. Penny's book has always been on my "A" list :).
As a midwife who did home births, I can tell you this is all true  Jun 26, 2008
Armstrong's and Feldman's book is outstanding. I would reccomend it to anyone thinking of having a baby. Listening to the stories about home birth in the Amish community will increase a woman's sense of confidence about her own body and give her faith in the natural process of birth. This is a classic. Every mother should own it.
Delightful!!!  Jan 12, 2008
I am a self proclaimed doula and accidental midwife. This book spoke to my heart what I know to be true about birth but had no words for. The journey that Penny went through finally ending at a healthy respect for life and was just beautiful. I enjoyed the stories of the Amish people and their ways and am challenged to look at the way I live. Excellent!
Great Read!   Nov 28, 2007
This is a great book that enters the world of both midwifery and the Amish. Actually, it's more about the Amish than midwifery so if you are looking for a book that is soley about birthing babies, than I would consider Baby Catcher or something similar.
Really enjoyed this book.
Mildly Disappointing...  Sep 2, 2007
I liked this one overall; there were some good birth stories, and I learned more than I expected to about the Amish. There was also some good insight into the hospital birth system.

However, I was left a bit disappointed because I didn't feel the book was well-written in general. The story was often jerky and disjointed. To offer one example, when Penny went to Scotland for her nurse midwifery training, I wasn't quite sure what was going on. Wasn't she American? Why did she go all the way to Scotland? What, what? Some events just felt... random and not properly introduced.

There were also quite a few lulls in the story; about 3/4 of the way through, I got bored and started skimming. I was expecting more birth stories, but there weren't too many.

I would recommend checking this out from the library. And if you're looking for more birth stories and drama surrounding midwifery in general, check out "Baby Catcher" by Peggy Vincent.
