Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the age of twenty-two, Jennifer Worth leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in post war Londons 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 cant speak English to the prostitutes and dockers of the citys 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.

Synopsis:

Companion to the PBS series. An unforgettable story of the joy of motherhood, the bravery of a community, and the hope of one extraordinary woman.

About the Author

JENNIFER WORTH (1935-2011) trained as a nurse at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, England. She then moved to London to train as a midwife. She later became a staff nurse at the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel, and then ward sister at the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in Euston. Music had always been her passion and in 1973 Jennifer left nursing in order to study music intensively. She gained the Licentiate of the London College of Music in 1974 and was awarded a fellowship ten years later.
