This review is from: The Complete Call the Midwife Stories: True Stories of the East End in the 1950s (Kindle Edition)
This is an excellent series of books detailing life in the East End of London in the mid-1950s. Although based on true events I suspect that some have been slightly fictionalised, but the book is none the worse for that. The book brings home what life was like for thousands of people in the East End, after the war and before large-scale rebuilding had taken place - I had not understood how appalling the conditions were for so many people, but after thinking about it realised that the mid-1950s are nearer to Victorian times than they are to us in 2012! The books tell of Jenny, a midwife working with nuns to provide maternity services to the local community and some of the events which occurred. Thoroughly recommended
