Description

At the age of twenty-two, Jennifer Worth leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in post war London s East End slums. The colorful characters she meets while delivering babies all over London 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 and dockers of the city s seedier side illuminate a fascinating time in history. Beautifully written and utterly moving, Call the Midwife will touch the hearts of anyone who is, and everyone who has, a mother."show more
