Bringing history to life

One day, several years ago, UK novelist Annelisa Christensen won some pages of a seventeenth century trial in an auction, merely to hold a piece of a 300-year-old book. That purchase changed her life.

The defendant in the trial, Elizabeth Cellier, captivated Annelisa enough to research everything she could about her and write her exciting & inspirational story.

The Popish Midwife is the first in the Seventeenth Century Midwives series about other noteworthy midwives of the time.
