"A fascinating and very human insight into London's past…"
Like "Call the Midwife", this is based on Jennifer Worth's time working in the East End. The stories of her patients, colleagues and local characters are told in a warm and human way, but are also full of interest and create a vivid picture of that period in London's history. While some of the stories are heartwarming or hilarious, others are desperately sad and have stayed with me ever since.Read moreLess

Another great book by Jennifer Worth. A follow on from 'Call the midwife'. Jennifer yet again reels you in with her fantastic story telling, of how life was in the 1930's, re-telling stories from an old soldier and from children in the work house. An amazing book, I do hope she brings out more.Read moreLess
