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?
