A celebrated midwife, skilled at delivering babies in difficult rural circumstances, finds herself at the blunt end of China's controversial one child policy. In this complex family story, told through letters and narrative forms, the author explores the emotional and moral toll of state control on a traditional community that places a high value on a large family.
