Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Leaving a middle-class childhood to become a midwife in Londons poor East End, Jennifer Worth not only delivered babies, she touched numerous lives and recounted with depth the heartrending story of a neighborhood in transition. Call the Midwife: Farewell to the East End is the last book in Worths memoir trilogy, which the Times Literary Supplement described as “powerful stories with sweet charm and controlled outrage” in the face of dire circumstances.

Here, at last, is the full story of Chummys delightful courtship and wedding. We also meet Meganmave, identical twins who share a browbeaten husband, and return to Sister Monica Joan, who is in top eccentric form. As in Worths first two books, Call the Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times and Call the Midwife: Shadows of the Workhouse, the vividly portrayed denizens of a postwar East End contend with the trials of extreme poverty—unsanitary conditions, hunger, and disease—and find surprising ways to thrive in their tightly knit community.

Synopsis:

The final book in the trilogy begun by Jennifer Worth’s bestseller Call the Midwife, the basis for the popular PBS series.

Synopsis:

The third volume in the series that began with the New York Times bestseller Call the Midwife, now a PBS hit series.
