    Like all of Tracy Chevalier's books this is beautifully written and deeply engrossing Unlike her other books this has elements of a thriller The story alternates between Isabelle du Moulin aka “The Rousse” for her copper colored hair and her distant descendant Ella Turner Both are trained as midwives both are not able to practice their craft Isabelle's husband Ettienne won't let her Ella has moved with her husband to France for his wor
