We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

Mom -  Midwives is a gut-wrenching drama. It is based on the novel of the same name by Chris Bojhalian and was adapted for the stage by the author himself.  The story revolves around a midwive  charged with delivering a baby in the middle of a severe snowstorm and the tragic consequences which occur that the midwive may or may not be responsible for. The show is like two plays in one: a thriller in the first act, and a courtroom drama in the second. While the show does not exactly keep you on the edge of your seat every second, it is pretty intense and gets more so as the show goes on especially in the first act. It is definitely a story that gets under the skin and is not so easily dismissed from your mind even after the show is over.

And that's Mom's view. Tune in Sunday for this week's Sunday Scoop.
