If you enjoy social history, as I do, it gives a wonderful look in to the lives of females in the 1950's, a time when my mother was actually having babies, but in Devon not in the poor parts of the East End. It makes you appreciate the advances in pre natal and ante natal care that we take for granted now. I enjoyed reading the book, but wished I had read it before watching the series, which I also enjoyed.

Call the midwife

Very enjoyable read and very true to life as it must have been back in the 1950s. The book is written in a way which is easy to read and which expresses the author's feelings about her work during those austere times. It clearly brings to mind pictures of post war Britain in the big cities. I found it easy to read, difficult to put down and would recommend it to everyone who has an interest in social history.

what a read!

Just the sort of book that i like. it certainly opened my eyes as to the post war conditions in the London docks region. I found i was helped visually by watching the BBC adaptation at the same time. What characters the good sisters were. ,To use the time worn cliche I couldn't put it down- the housework was ignored ! congratualtions to the writer for yet another very readable book.

Jennifer Worth, from the start, has a fascinating and engaging literary style; she's knowledgeable in her craft, and speaks with passion and authority on its depths.
It is more than this, however, which has made "Call the Midwife" and its successors so successful - it is the human stories of young girls (and older girls) living incredibly tough lives in the East End that those of the 21st century must struggle to imagine.
This is a book that has resonated with me as few others have. Simply brilliant.
