A very well written piece of juvenile historical fiction. Alyce, who doesn't know where she came from, is taken in by a village midwife. She becomes her appretice, until she makes a big mistake. Alyce learns that she must have confidence in herself and her abilities. A short book that's well worth a read for the historical details of medieval life and the lessons that we all ought to learn while growing up.
