August, 1797. Midwife Parthenia Blenkinsop has delivered countless babies, but nothing prepares her for the experience that unfolds when she arrives at Mary Wollstonecraft's door. Over the 11 harrowing days that follow, as Mrs. Blenkinsop fights for the survival of both mother and newborn, Wollstonecraft recounts the life she dared to live amidst the impossible constraints and prejudices of the 18th century, risking everything to demand equality for herself and all women. She weaves her riveting tale to give her fragile daughter—the future Mary Shelley—a reason to live, even as her own strength wanes.

"Gripping…. Silva's heartbreaking but inspiring work captures the despair and joy, convictions and contradictions of an extraordinary woman."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
