Very timely book, but not "call the midwife",
This review is from: The Midwife's Here! (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is not the story behind "call the midwife" but that is no distraction to the book. A young nurse trains to be a midwife in a time when midwifery was trying to establish itself as an independent profession. The ups and downs are told without trying to put a warm glow over every event.
Given the term of service of the author there is no loss of passion for her calling and certainly much pride in her recollection. This reflects an era when people did stand out from the grey anonymity of the world and could make a real difference. Being remembered for your hard work and good deeds is a great thing and really shines through in her writing.
