I got this book for an honest review. I did review "Escape From Behruz" by Judy Meadows before.
She was outrageous—with her ponytail, her jar of semen, and her T-shirt that proclaimed, "Midwife at Your Cervix."
Layla's trip to Behruz is meant to be one last adventure before she joins her dreamboat fiance in Texas. But Behruz casts a spell on her. Her knowledge as a midwife is needed there. Serving women's health in a country where no one talks about "such things" is a challenge.
Majid, an American-trained doctor, is ready to settle down, but because of an old family bias, American women are forbidden to him. That's no problem until Layla walks into his clinic with a sassy smile, a jar of semen, and a blond fiance back home.
Midwife in Behruz is a very good story and it is very heart warming. I really enjoyed the story a lot. We get to follow Layla and she is a sweet and nice person and it is easy to feel for her and get to know her in the book. I like how she is and how she both fit in and dont fit in. She is a strange but I love that about her and how she do take risks.
Majid on the other hand is completely different and it was not strange that he and Layla meet and took a liking to each other. I like how he is portrayed and how he acts in the book. I started liking him from start.
The story unfolds in a very good way and we get to know new people and new places. It can tell that Judy Meadows has deep knowledge about what she is writing, about middle east and similar things. She takes that knowledge makes very nice books out of it. When reading I was transported to Behurz and I could feel, see and smell everything. It was hard to believe I was not there and that is something only great authors can do.
I really enjoyed this book and both this one and "Escape From Behruz" is books I have to buy as paperbacks because they are truly great and it is book I can and will reread.
