Fans of the four Call the Midwife books that inspired the TV series will treasure this collection of letters to and from the author, Jennifer Worth, who passed away in 2011. Her tales of life in 1950s East End London inspired others to share their experiences of nursing at the time, along with responses from people from all walks of life. Perhaps most moving are the notes from Sister Jocelyn (known as Sister Julienne in the books), offering words of wisdom. (WOMAN)
Jennifer Worth, author of the bestselling Call the Midwife, sadly passed away in May 2011 following a short illness. Her books have gained a great deal of popularity in recent years with their mixture of warmth, sadness and humour based on her experiences working as a midwife in the East End of London. Letters to the Midwife features some of the treasured letters received by Worth from former work colleagues and fans of her books. The resulting book is a rich testament to a life lived fully and to a very special lady whose memories have managed to inspire and touch so many (www.thebookbag.co.uk)

Her family have done very well in compiling this book and I highly recommend it to others, found it difficult to put down.
She was such an amazing lady who was determined to do good for others. Her books were so well written, what talent. I read all the letters and found a lot of them very emotional, which gave in insight to the hardship people had to endure.
Upsetting to think she was taken too soon.
