Three French village midwife-healers. Three standalone stories spanning six hundred years. Stories of three courageous women, in this series of historical novels based on real events.
Olga Núñez Miret, author/translator (English/Spanish), psychiatrist, book reviewer: … a must for lovers of historical and women’s fiction. Beautifully written, carefully
researched, and emotionally charged, the three books are connected by an amulet and the female legacy it represents … adventures of strong, brave, and determined women who will pull at your heartstrings.
Terry Tyler, author: An intricately researched and beautifully written series that artfully shows how the threads of the past link generations together.
Claire Whatley, reader, writer: For readers who love gripping, well-written, intelligent fiction. Three stand-alone stories linked by a bone angel talisman that is passed down to midwife women over generations of a single family. In each, a different female protagonist faces the challenges of the age – Black Death, French Revolution, World War II – as well as the challenges contained in every human life: love, loss, friendship, betrayal, tragedy and heart-rending choices.
C. P. Lesley, author of The Golden Lynx and other novels: Three compelling heroines linked by a bone angel with a mystical past–a French village struggling with revolution, world war, and Black Death. Follow Victoire, Céleste, and Héloïse as each undertakes a richly imagined, emotionally complex journey toward a definition of womanhood that is uniquely her own. This trilogy–on my list of Hidden Gems–is one not to be missed.
Josie Barton, Book Blogger at JaffaReadsToo: … grips your imagination from the very beginning and the momentum doesn’t stop until all the stories are completed.
