The Midwife's Daughter is warm and wise, heart- breakingly sad and yet somehow uplifting too.I've been a big fan of Patricia Ferguson for many years - and I think this is her finest novel yet. -- Jacqueline Wilson A masterfully detailed, compassionate and enthralling story, rich in surprising revelations and beautifully plotted. -- Miranda Seymour She is precisely the kind of writer whose novels you'd expect to find advertised on tube billboards and selling in the hundred thousands - plotty, emollient, fluent, concerned with relationships and what fosters or thwarts them, and capable of making you root for the characters Guardian Strong, affecting, vividly depicted ... It is a pure pleasure to read -- Lionel Shriver Telegraph One of the most brilliant novelists around ... funny, gripping, wonderfully shrewd -- Amanda Craig Independent Moving seamlessly between characters, she shines light on barely-conscious thoughts and feelings to great, often ironic effect ... a sympathetic, psychologically acute and thoroughly involving tale Daily Mail Hugely enjoyable, classic storytelling Red Ferguson should be better known ... she draws on years of experience working as a nurse and midwife to produce acute, skilful descriptions FT
