The Midwife’s In Town

A Novel of Feminist Resistance

Cover art: Susan Greene

The future is now. Roe v. Wade is history.

Abortion is becoming illegal state by state, with the South leading the way. Virginia is the latest domino to fall.

Mollie O’Shay, a retired nurse-midwife from California, packs her bags for Richmond to work in an underground abortion clinic. She starts seeing clients an hour after she steps off the plane. Soon she meets Toni, an alluring, possibly gun-toting anthropology professor. But Mollie isn’t quite who she appears to be, and secrets from her past are about to catch up with her, jeopardizing everyone involved in the clinic.

“The mysteries unfold one after the other in this fast-paced novel, with the tension interlaced with laugh-aloud humor, and a lesbian romance to boot. A thoroughly enjoyable read.”
— Barbara Ridley, retired nurse practitioner, author of When It’s Over: A Novel

“I wish this book weren’t necessary, but it is. It’s also lively, smart, and totally satisfying.”
–Ellen Meeropol, author of Her Sister’s Tattoo
