This review is from: Farewell To The East End: The Last Days of the East End Midwives (Call The Midwife) (Paperback)
I cannot recommend this book (and the other two books in the mini series - call the midwife and shadows of the workhouse) highly enough. Very interesting content about a now vanished world, lively characters, fluent and engaging written style and with so much social history thrown in that it is more useful than a textbook would be. Twinning the detailed explanations on previous midwifery practice with the cultural background of the dockers lives is a wonderful combination that is fresh and revealing. Very sad to get to the end of the book as it certainly closes off any chance of a follow up. I am now busy passing my copies of all three books around my friends so they can read them too! Wonderful!!

Do the next three books continue the story from call the midwife or are they stand alone with different people?
