Description
(Newbery Medal Winner) This is Karen Cushman's second historical novel, for readers 10 and up—the follow-up to her 1995 Newbery Honor Book Catherine, Called Birdy. On a frosty morning in the 14th century, in a village somewhere in England, a girl known only as Brat is sleeping in a dung heap. "You, girl. Are you alive or dead?" says a voice, and when Brat opens her eyes, she sees an important-looking woman with a sharp glance and a sharp nose and a wimple starched into sharp pleats. This woman is Jane the Midwife, and she needs a helper. Cushman's funny, wise, compassionate story is a spare, fast-moving tale that speaks to many readers in different ways, as the author explains in her introduction. She also provides an author's note about the ancient practice of midwifery.
