In Sally Hepworth‘s new novel, The Secrets of Midwives, babies are brought into the world and secrets surface. But in this family of midwives, are some secrets best kept hidden?

Neva Bradley, a third generation midwife, is determined to keep the details surrounding her own pregnancy— including the identity of the baby’s father— hidden from her family and co-workers for as long as possible. Her mother, Grace, finds it impossible to let this secret rest. The Secrets of MidwivesFor Floss, Neva’s grandmother and a retired midwife, Neva’s situation thrusts her back 60 years in time to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter’s—a secret which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all.
