Reviews

Worth writes beautifully of her memories of that period's poverty and suffering, mixed with great joy, humour and compassion. She has an eye for detail and social history, and above all, for the extraordinary characters that she brings vibrantly alive . . . Underneath these attractive, amusing stories, Worth had a profound moral sense that people could use their difficulties and suffering creatively

Fans of Call the Midwife rejoice, for there are more stories from London's East End of the 1950s to devour from Jennifer Worth . . . Featuring beloved characters like Chummy, Sister Monica Joan and Fred Buckle, it's a charming addition to the ever-popular series'
