Gracy Brookens is the only midwife in a small Colorado mining town, whom the women of Swandyke trust and depend on. Everything changes when a baby is found dead, and the evidence points to Gracy as the murderer. She didn't commit the crime, but clearing her name isn't so easy when her innocence is not quite so simple, either. She knows things, and that's dangerous. A woman sometimes says things in the birthing bed, and Gracy tucks these revelations away. With her friends taking sides and a trial looming, Gracy must decide whether it's worth risking everything to prove her innocence.
