Pennsylvania, 1833. Martha Cade comes from a long line of midwives who have served the families of Trinity for generations. She's a woman on her own, with two nearly-grown children whom she's raised alone since the death of her husband. Her one hope is that her daughter will follow her footsteps and take on the challenging life of a midwife. But when her daughter runs away, Martha's world is shattered. After months of searching, Martha returns, heartbroken, to Trinity. Still determined to do the work she knows God intended for her, Martha finds her faith sorely tested. Soon, she realizes she must draw on that faith to stop a town scandal, mend relationships, and find her daughter.

A Place Called Trinity is a novel of laughter and tears, faith and hope. It's a novel peopled with characters you might recognize right next door, and a woman, Martha Cade, in whom you might see your own strengths, your own struggles, and your own belief in a father in heaven. And when you come home to Trinity, you'll come home to your own heart.
