Quaker midwife Rose Carroll is enjoying the 1888 Independence Day evening fireworks with her beau when a teenaged Quaker mill girl is found shot dead. After a former slave and fellow Quaker is accused of the murder, Rose delves into the crime, convinced of the man’s innocence. An ill-mannered mill manager, an Irish immigrant, and the victim’s young boyfriend come under suspicion even as Rose’s future with her handsome doctor suitor becomes unsure. Rose continues to deliver babies and listen to secrets, finally figuring out one criminal – only to be threatened by the murderer, with three lives at stake. Can she rescue herself, a baby, and her elderly midwifery teacher in time?
Praise for Delivering the Truth

Ms. Maxwell weaves a sturdy cloth from the stories of the various characters in Delivering the Truth.
I enjoyed every minute of this book…
~Shelley’s Book Case
This was a very entertaining read. I really enjoy reading Edith Maxwell’s writing as it flows so well.
~Melina’s Book Blog
…a different type of historical cozy…I enjoyed reading a book where the protagonist is a midwife and of the Quaker faith…
Rose is a smart character and the history of the story is done well.
~A Chick Who Reads
The author takes us into Rose’s life, making us feel as though we are right there with her in every situation. The mystery is well-developed and leaves the reader guessing right to the end.
