More About the Author

Jennifer Worth was a nurse, midwife, ward sister and night sister from 1953 until 1973, working mainly in London. Music had always been her passion, and in 1973 she left nursing in order to study music intensively, teaching piano and singing for about twenty-five years. All Jennifer's books have been bestsellers and Call the Midwife is now a major BBC TV adaptation.

Product Description

Review

From the moment I opened this beautifully-illustrated hardback, I was enchanted - from the poignant sepia photographs, to the author's engaging, conversational prose... I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a moving and heart-warming memoir (HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY)

brings the East End of the Fifties to life (CHOICE MAGAZINE)

This is an illustrated version...studded with drawings and wonderful black-and-white photographs of the East End - where Jennifer practised - in the 1950s... very moving... Worth's publishers have included photographs from her own family albums...so that you get an even clearer sense of this lost world - those who lived it, and those who tried to make it more bearable (THE LADY)

glorious... A real treat, particularly for fans of the TV show, and one to keep (FAMILY TREE MAGAZINE)

Worth's books are full of fascinating social history: about living conditions in east London, the scale of poverty and violence, the realities of postwar medicine and the workhouse (NEW STATESMAN)

I have the whole series
Of Call the Midwife plus the Companion edition
The Life and Times of Call the Midwife and they are ALL BRILLIANT.
If like me you were born and brought up in the old East End then they bring back some really happy memories of an era long gone.
Even if you have no knowledge of the area you will find it interesting to see what people put up with and still managed to have a smile on their face.
A harsh time made bearable by family, friends and neighbours.
I recommend these books unreservedly.

I have a paperback copy but it doesn't have many photos, so I was delighted to find this hardback edition with extra photographs.

What a lovely book at such a reasonable price. I expected it to arrive a bit tatty but just one page was creased and the print on two pages a little blurry.
The television series really depicted the story perfectly - an excellent read.

Bought this for my daughter and she has really enjoyed it. It is worth getting this hard back edition if you like this series as it has all about the actors as well as characters. Good read.
