Truly Yours is the book subscription service from Barbour Publishing. Since they are a Christian book publisher, they provide inspirational fiction books. You receive one new release book every four to six weeks. Here’s some further information on their service.
This is the ninth shipment I have received. I’ll share the contents with you here. My review is not for the book I received because I haven’t read it yet, but instead will be for the content and subscription experience.
These shipments arrive in padded envelopes. This one arrived in good shape clearly labeled so that I knew what was in the envelope.
The book I received was ‘The Heart of the Midwife’, a novella collection, by Darlene Franklin, Patty Smith Hall, Cynthia Hickey, Marylin Turk (Historical Romance). Here is what the book is about:
Love Charm by Cynthia Hickey
Ozark Mountains, 1868
Bound by a common bond of wanting to help the Missouri hill people they’ve grown to love, Phoebe Hudson, socialite-turned-midwife, and Luke Morris, the schoolteacher, find themselves mediators in a family feud.
Love’s Rebirth by Darlene Franklin
Dr. Vaughan Strahan, a war veteran, wants to work with expectant mothers so others don’t die like his wife and child, but there is already a midwife working in the old mining district whose approval he is determined to win.
If Not For Grace by Patty Smith Hall
New York City, 1889
After her friend’s death in childbirth, Grace Sullivan converts her family home into a haven for immigrant families preparing for the birth of a child. But when the city threatens to close her down, her only hope is to ask for help from an unlikely source—her former fiancé, Patrick O’Leary.
Between Two Worlds by Marilyn Turk
New Orleans, 1890
Camille Duval confronts Madam Lafleur, the local voodoo queen, when she attends one of her first births since moving to New Orleans. How can Camille convince the young mother to trust her instead of voodoo for the health of her baby? Can Camille enlist the support of the young family physician, Julian Charbonnet who doesn’t seem interested in “women’s affairs”?
I like this subscription service overall. While I don’t read many novella collections, I do like that this one has multiple historical timeframes. Novella collections are a great way to get to know an authors writing style if you are unfamiliar with them.
The cost of this service is $9.97/month including shipping. For a brand new book, this is a good price.
I will continue the subscription next month.
