Abigail is an Amish midwife and in the state she lived in Amish midwives are unlicensed. She is called to do a home birth and she normally works with a doctor MD but the doctor wasn't able to come. She showed up there at the last minute an emergency and delivered the baby and the woman died, but it wasn't from her negligence that the woman died. The woman had been told. She should never have any children and the woman told Abigail when she delivered the baby she knew she was going to die when she delivered the baby but she wanted an Amish midwife there with her, and Abigail had some Pitocin, which is a prescription drug that she administered to the woman, Abigail was arrested for doing the homebirth alone and for administering the Pitocin, and for the woman dying. She goes to jail in the story is about how her and her family coped when she was charged, going to jail what happened with her
family when she was in jail and what happened with her in jail A very interesting book I have never read an Amish book like this.
