Delivering the Truth by Edith Maxwell was a Net Galley read. The book will be published by Midnight Ink on 8 April 2016. This is a historical cozy mystery.
My first book by the author and it was a complete delight. It is beautifully written and will make you smile. The plot is well thought out and expertly crafted. There is no sudden surprise ending, the clues are all there for the reader.
Rose Carroll is the protagonist and a practicing Quaker and midwife. Once you adjust to the Quaker speech patterns, Rose is a character with depth and soul. She cares for her family, her patients, and the community. She is an independent woman who has this brave, adventurous spirit that is infectious.
Five stars out of five stars for an incredibly well written story that left me wanting more adventures with Rose Carroll.
