I read the Outback Midwife via a book club and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a light, easy read and by the end of the book I felt like I knew Beth and liked her so much that I didn’t want the book to end. This memoir details Beth’s life as a midwife from the time she qualifies until she decides to retire. Although all her experiences had a significant influence on her life, none were more profound than her posting to a remote Aboriginal community in the far north of Queensland. Beth writes with compassion and empathy and her love for the people she nursed is amply evident via her writing. A wonderful and uplifting true Aussie tale.
