MIDWIFE'S DAUGHTER, THE

Synopsis

Violet Dimond has delivered many of the town children - and often their children - in her capacity as handywoman. But Violet's calling is dying out as, with medicine's advances, the good old ways are no longer good enough. For Violet and her adopted daughter, Grace, the coming war will bring more upheaval into their lives: can they endure it, or will they, like so many, be swept aside by history's tide?
