The Complete Call the Midwife Stories: True Stories of the East End in the 1950s (English Edition) Kindle电子书
The East-End stories that inspired the BBC TV series, CALL THE MIDWIFE, in a gorgeous gift box.
London's East End in the 1950s was a tough place: the struggles of post-war life - bombsites, overcrowded tenements, crime, brothels - bred a culture of tight-knit family communities, larger-than-life characters and a lively social scene. It was into this world that Jennifer Worth entered as a trainee midwife. But docklands life was tough, and babies were often born in slum conditions.
In funny, disturbing and heartbreaking stories, Jennifer Worth recounts her time among nuns, prostitutes, abortionists, bigamists, gangsters and expectant mothers, portraying East Enders' amazing resilience - and their warmth and humour in the face of hardship. Written with affection and nostalgia, her midwife stories chronicle the lives, traditions and tales of a bygone era.

Let me just say that the TV series has done an amazing job of sticking to and growing characters and a storyline. The book series is not made less due to the television "based on" series.
I began to wonder about the book version when Jenny's character made an exit to "work with the dying" .
These are truly memoirs! Jennifer Worth makes you feel as if you are right there with her. I was drawn in to the ups and downs of her days throughout her life over what seemed a short period of time. She shares her heart, her joys, sorrows as she walks through life in the midst of illnesses, disease, and death. And was a part of time when people were learning about the effects of medicine on unborn children, vaccinations and community nursing.
She stands firm in her nursing advocating for her patients, and declares her faith in her days.
My only regret is that she passed away before I could sit and have tea with her.
I read it in paperback first.(One novel) Ihave become more and more eager to get more...Since I have had my Kindle my son helps me to order great variety of reading material, among others I asked Jennifer Worth books. She talks about people in such a style I feel near to me.
I have always been interested in the history of the XX. century, its culture and social circumstances, I love the language. Great Britain, or rather the United Kingdom, or the British Isles and any other English speaking country, their literature interests me.
The 1950s is such an era which seems to be extremely interesting for me.Last but not least I can always study new words, phrases, etc. They are all rereadable masterpieces, it'll be easy on Kindle. I love it.
The book gave me so much emotional and human treasure with its heroes and stories and events, they might become my friednds .I enjoyed reading about the life of these poor or not so well-off people's life..Cockney is just icing on the cake, Some documentary, some fiction, I would call the genre 'docufics'.I guess it's feminine reading. Do anyone agree with me?
