It’s wedding day in Port Agnes!
The venue is booked, the dress is picked, and Senior Midwife Anna Jones only has to say ‘I Do!’ to the man she loves! Theirs might have been a whirlwind romance, but Brae Penrose is everything Anna dreamed her husband would be and she can’t wait to start a family with him.
But as the big day approaches, Anna still isn’t pregnant and when disaster strikes, their perfect day looks destined not to happen at all! Is it a sign to slow things down?
The other midwives won’t hear of Anna and Brae postponing their big day, and soon the whole community of Port Agnes comes together to make sure the Penrose wedding goes off without a hitch!
And Anna realises, baby or not, she already has her dream family with Brae and her friends by her side.
Meet The Cornish Midwives of Port Agnes- where community, friendship and love are always delivered.
This book was previously published as Christmas with the Cornish Midwives.
I received a copy of this book from Boldwood Books via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
It is lovely to revisit Port Agnes in the second of the Cornish Midwife series. This one focuses on Anna, a senior midwife. Anna is about to get married and hopes to become a mum too. This story explores fertility, fostering and other topical socio-medical issues in an insightful way.
Anna is plagued with worries about conceiving, her need for a child an integral part of her grief at losing her parents. As an only child, I understand the relationship with her parents and her feelings of loss when they died. Brae is a supportive and understanding man, and you want them to achieve their dreams.
The story is full of life and medical dramas. The friendship and wider community spirit are believably written. It makes this a heartwarming read.
I was born a stone’s throw from the English Channel and I still live near the sea in Kent, with my own family – so close to the South Eastern edge of England that we’re very nearly French – and it’s probably why so many of my books are set near the sea too. I’ve made up stories for as long as I can remember, but never really took it any further. Concentrating on my career and family, writing went on the back burner until a catalyst called cancer gave me a major kick up the proverbial. I decided I was going to write that novel after all.
