The Birth HouseRead "The Birth House" The October BookSmart Book Club Selection"As a child, Dora Rare, the first female in five generations of Rares, is taken under the wing of Marie Babineau, an outspoken Acadian midwife with a gift for storytelling and a kitchen filled with herbs. As she grows into adulthood, Dora becomes Mrs. Babineau's apprentice, and together the pair help the women of Scots Bay through infertility, difficult labor, breech births, unwanted pregnancies, and even unfulfilling marriages. But their idyllic community is threatened with the arrival of Gilbert Thomas, a brash medical doctor armed with promises of sterile, painless childbirth."Book Club meets the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7pm.
