Welcome back to Hope River in New York Times bestselling
author Patricia Harman’s newest novel as midwife Patience
Hester, along with her family and friends, face the
challenges of the home front during World War II.
The women of Hope River trust midwife Patience Hester,
whose skill in delivering babies is known for miles around.
But though the Great Depression is behind them, troubles
are not, for Europe is at war…and it can only be a matter
of time before the U.S. enters the fray.
And while some are eager to join the fight, Patience’s
husband, Daniel, is not. Daniel is a patriot—but he saw too

His stance leaves Patience and their four children

the government, who imprison Daniel for his beliefs.
Patience must support their family and fight for her
husband’s release despite her own misgivings. And with need
greater than ever, she must also keep her practice running
during this tumultuous time…relying on generous friends,
like Bitsy, who has returned to Hope River, stalwart
neighbors, and her own indomitable strength to see them all
