Summary

Brand new from the top 10 best-selling author of The Cornish Midwife.

Midwife Jess knows she’ll never have a baby of her own, but she’s determined to still be a mum. So Jess decides to foster, providing love and support for children who desperately need it - something Jess never had as a child when she was in foster care.

Jess loves caring for the precious babies who come into her life, but letting them go again breaks her heart every time - can she really be a mum after all?

But then Jess finds a surprise on her doorstep - a newborn baby! As the search for the missing mum begins, Jess cares for the precious babe day and night. She desperately wants to reunite mum and baby but knows that when the day comes, her own heart will shatter.

Absolutely loved this book, in fact the whole series.

I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this series of books. I love the way the characters are introduced in each book and back stories are woven in so expertly. I feel I know the characters! I really hope more books are added. The narrator is fantastic, great accent and credible differences between the characters. A brilliant listen or read, highly recommend. Intelligently written and interesting with a great story. I will miss Ella, Anna, Toni & Jess and all their families!

Another wonderful book by Jo Bartlett

As with the other three books in the Cornish Midwives series, I absolutely loved this book.

I enjoyed getting to know Jess a little more, she has had a difficult childhood and marriage but has come through the other side. I really wish she wasn’t so hard on herself, she’s a very likeable character. I’m so glad that she and Dexter found each other.

It was also great to keep up with the lives of the other midwives and get to know Izzy a bit better. I really hope that Jo writes another in this series focusing on Izzy’s story. It would also be lovely to see how Ella’s wedding goes and the birth of Toni and Bobbi’s baby.

A feel good page turner.

Absolutely amazing

Loved this book just as much as the last 3, loved the fact we delved more into Jess’s life and how we could also follow the lives of all the other midwife’s, it was fabulous from beginning to end and I cannot wait for the 5th instalment
