Description



About the Book



"Published as The Midwife in Penguin Books 2009"--T.p. verso.



Book Synopsis



The highest-rated drama in BBC history, Call the Midwife will delight fans of Downton Abbey

Viewers everywhere have fallen in love with this candid look at post-war London. In the 1950s, twenty-two-year-old Jenny Lee leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in London's East End slums. While delivering babies all over the city, Jenny encounters a colorful cast of women--from the plucky, warm-hearted nuns with whom she lives, to the woman with twenty-four children who can't speak English, to the prostitutes of the city's seedier side.

An unfortgettable story of motherhood, the bravery of a community, and the strength of remarkable and inspiring women, Call the Midwife is the true story behind the beloved PBS series, which will soon return for its sixth season.



Review Quotes



Jennifer Worth's memories of her years as a midwife were at once hilarious and tremendously moving. -Ayelet Waldman, author of Love and Other Impossible Pursuits

Worth is indeed a natural storyteller. . . . Her detailed account of being a midwife in London's East End is gripping, moving, and convincing from beginning to end. -Literary Review

I loved the people, the nuns, the tough dockers, the prostitutes and pimps, seen with the fresh eyes of youth. -The Guardian

Readers will fall in love with Call the Midwife . . . an affirmation of life during the best and worst of times. -Elizabeth Brundage, author of The Doctor's Wife

I loved it from the first episode I watched and can't wait for the new season t start. Very entertaining and I love the simplicity of the show, the characters are all nice and and sometimes innocently naughty, but reminds me of a simpler time in life
