midwife and talks her into taking her in. She names herself Alyce and becomes
an apprentice to the ill tempered midwife. There is so much detail in this
small book that you begin to understand what life must have been like during
this time period. Can Alyce overcome her meager background to find a place
in society? Read THE MIDWIFE'S APPRENTICE to find out.
