I have not been over here in quite a long time...so
I was wondering if any of you have read the following and if so what you thought...
Midwives by Christopher Bohjalian
The Overton Window by Glenn Beck
The Last Time I saw You by Elizabeth Berg
Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah
My local library does not carry these (small town) and I hate to spend money on them if they are not that great. Thanks in advance!

I can only comment on Midwives by Chris Bohjalian. It is one of my favorites and he's one of my fave authors. Midwives is my favorite of his books though. I found it to be a page turner, and it kept me up late into the night reading.
I see that you are nearing delivery though, so I think I'd wait to read it until after that.
If you don't get much feedback here, you could also look at Amazon reviews to get an idea if they are worth purchasing, though you have to be careful due to spoilers.
I agree that Midwives is fantastic (also the only book on your list that I've read). Its one of my favorites. I'd highly recommend it although I also agree to wait until you deliver before reading.
There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic. ~ The Thirteenth Tale
Congrats on your new baby!
