A fresh start…

Midwife Ella Mehenick left the small Cornish town of Port Agnes for London and never looked back. But when her seemingly perfect life crashes down around her, there’s only one place she can heal her battered heart – the place she once called home. 

A new arrival…

Ella is quickly welcomed into the small community midwife team and loves her new job caring for mums and their precious babies – it’s what she does best! But being back also means facing ex-flame Dan Ferguson…the first man to break her heart.

A second chance at love?

Dan is still as gorgeous as ever, but he’s never forgiven Ella for leaving. And now she’s back it’s clear that there is unfinished business between them. As Ella settles into her new/old life, she can’t stop the memories of how she once loved Dan so completely – and maybe never stopped.

Maybe coming home to Cornwall is Ella’s chance to love again…

Meet The Cornish Midwives of Port Agnes- where community, friendship, and love are always delivered.

So I have been sitting here trying to figure out all my feelings about The Cornish Midwife by Jo Bartlett and trying to put them into words, the easy tag words would be strong, resilient, second chance love, and blackmail, but this book is so much more! 

It’s the tale of a woman who never really got over her first love, embarrassed by the man she thought she should love, live in the place that she thought her parents would be most proud of her, but when she comes home she finds that nothing is always what it seems. 


The main characters Ella and Dan are everything you would want in the main characters and more, the way the author wrote about the vulnerability really made me relate to the characters.  


The Cornish Midwife is an outstanding book and one I couldn’t put down, and it’s definitely one I will read again and again. 


I give The Cornish Midwife 5 stars 

Jo Bartlett is the bestselling author of nineteen women’s fiction titles. She fits her writing in between her two day jobs as an educational consultant and university lecturer and lives with her family and three dogs on the Kent coast.
