Call the Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jennifer Worth

Narrated By: Nicola Barber

Summary:

At the age of twenty-two, Jennifer Worth leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in post war London’s East End slums. The colorful characters she meets while delivering babies all over London-from the plucky, warm-hearted nuns with whom she lives to the woman with twenty-four children who can’t speak English to the prostitutes and dockers of the city’s seedier side-illuminate a fascinating time in history. Beautifully written and utterly moving, Call the Midwife will touch the hearts of anyone who is, and everyone who has, a mother.

    I just love all the Midwife books that are out there for our reading pleasure and this one didn’t fail in any way at all. It was so heartwarming, enjoyable, and it showed the beauty and joy of new life. It so touched my heart in the middle of London shortly after the Second World War when there were slums and poverty but genuine love for each other also. I hope you all enjoy this book like I did.

    wonderfully? rich history and a unique story. my only cons are there are some graphic scenes about prostitution and child neglect. not too long and I skipped some of that. worth the read!

  • Amy Buckingham

    A fine, well-written tale of an obscure part of history, narrated with skill and feeling.

  • Lauren Emery

    Great book, fascinating, insightful, and touching. Narrator really does the book justice.
