The Birth House by Ami McKay

You may have noticed once or twice that I am a huge fan of lists. So here is another interesting list, 100 Novels the Make You Proud to be Canadian. I've only read 5 of the 100 novels. That`s rather sad. The books I have read from this list are all in my Amazing category.

The Birth House by Ami McKay


I do believe my sister Nancy gave me this book to read.  I really enjoyed it.  It was a good solid read and I personally like historical fiction, even when it isn't set far in the past.

I'm almost scared to get into any sort of serious discussion about this book after reading a few reviews and seeing the lines in the sand drawn between the I-don't-get-it-I'm-confused group vs. the scary-feminist-agenda-making-women-who-give-birth-in-hospital-feel-bad group vs. . . . blah blah blah.

Let me tell you this . . . it is a well written story, there appears to be a great attention to the details, and it is hard to put down once you start reading it.  If the author did have a hidden agenda I don't really care.  I will leave the high-brow discussions to others.

Enjoy.
