I've read all three books by Jennifer Worth and loved them so much. They tell of a time and place, the poorest section of post-war London, I could never imagine. These midwives were true heroes although, the midwives would have said the women of the East End were the true heroes, struggling, caring for their families and surviving in the poverty and harsh conditions. The characters are so well filled out that I feel like I know them.
I am currently watching the BBC television series Call the Midwife which is on PBS or streaming online.
