Set in Colorado in the 1880s, The Last Midwife is the story of Gracy Brookens, an aging midwife in Swandyke, Colo., who is accused of murdering a newborn baby. As she prepares for the trial, Gracy looks back over her life, which has been one of great joy but also of great sorrow. She harbors secrets, some so deep that she cannot share them with her husband, and she must decide whether it’s worth revealing those secrets to prove her innocence.
