Every mum is proud of their children, right? OK, most are. There are exceptions. But I am the proudest mum in the world, no contest. You know why? Because my daughter has turned out to be the person I wish I could have been at her age. She cares; she wants to help people and animals; she wants to make a difference and... save the world. And she's doing it... a bit at the time!

Podcast/blog post review of The Popish Midwife by reader (and author) Viga Boland

"The author spent years researching her story and her attention to detail and fact, the historical period, customs and dialects gives The Popish Midwife authenticity. But it is AnneLisa Christensen’s considerable writing talent that make this an absorbing, worthwhile read even for those, who like me, aren’t fans of historical fiction, but who love a well-written story…one that keeps us turning the pages and wondering what will happen next. Highly recommended."

We often read author interviews, they are the ones whose name is on a book cover, but what about those working hard behind the scenes to help get the book into the finished shape? Interview with Jill Corley, beta reader and editor.

The Popish Midwife takes place at the end of the puritanical, strict era of Oliver Cromwell, when King Charles II was returned to the throne. While people celebrated the new freedom, the country was far from safe or healthy, especially for Catholics.
