The Midwife of VeniceThis week, history meets fiction with Roberta Rich’s international bestseller The Midwife of Venice. Set in 16th Century Italy, this is the tale of a Jewish midwife, Hannah, faced with decisions that threaten not only her own life, but also the lives of those she holds dear.

This book offers a perfect blend of historical fact while unveiling a riveting tale of the trials of living in 16th Century plague-ridden Venice and Malta under the control of the Knights of Jerusalem (hence the “sort of” tale of two cities!). The Midwife of Venice is meticulously researched and the era gives the perfect back drop for a tale of love, sacrifice and compassion in which Hannah must choose to follow either her religion or her heart…

Learn about life in Italy over 500 years ago while following an engrossing tale with dramatic twists and great suspense throughout. Hannah is an incredibly endearing and heroic main character, powered by her love for her husband and her duty to help mothers and babies in need, making this already great book even better. This really is an absolute page-turner. The Midwife of Veniceis a must read – after all there’s a reason its an international bestseller!

And we just so happen to have a copy of to give away.
