DescriptionJennifer Worth's bestselling memoirs of her time as a midwife have inspired and moved readers of all ages. Now, in IN THE MIDST OF LIFE she documents her experiences as a nurse and ward sister, treating patients who were nearing the end of their lives. Interspersed with these stories from Jennifer's post-midwife career are the histories of her patients, from the family divided by a decision nobody could bear to make, to the mother who comes to her son's adopted country and joins his family without being able to speak a word of English. IN THE MIDST OF LIFE also gives moving insights not just into Jennifer's life and career, but also of a period of time which seems very different to today's, fast-paced world.

IN THE MIDST OF LIFE
Wonderful book which affirms my belief that at certain times to prolong life at any cost is so wrong, modern medicine has come on so much but somewhere along the line good old common sense needs to prevail, well worth reading this, its not all gloom and doom which is what you may think when you read the question on the front cover is there such a thing as a good death? I know one thing for sure when I get to the age where I have had enough of this earthly plane I will make sure that I have D N R on my notes, not ready for that yet though! by karen Beaumont
