The Birth House
Ami McKay
Knoft Canada
Just like her plucky protagonist, the midwife-in-training Dora Rare, Ami McKay is one of those characters you root for—not that she needs your help. McKay’s first novel, set in rural World War I-era Scots Bay, Nova Scotia, planted itself firmly on all the bestseller lists this year, found UK and US publishers, was translated into German and Dutch, and made the cover of several publications, including The Coast. And for good reason. It’s rare to find a historical novel that’s as entertaining as it is educational, as well-researched as it is likeable. A perfect snowy Sunday treat.
