When the Call The Midwife series became bestsellers Jennifer Worth received mountains of letters - not only praising her books, but also from people who remembered the world her books described; life in the east end of London during the late 1940s and early 50s. Often her books touched her readers and they felt moved to write, or they wanted to share their own memories.
A prolific letter writer herself, Jennifer always corresponded and this book includes some fascinating letters she received, including letters about becoming a missionary and the curious list of things she would need! There are also letters from one of the nuns featured in the Call The Midwife books and other such gems.
Letters To the Midwive includes a moving introduction by Jennifer's family about the Jennifer Worth they knew and loved. Read by Patience Tomlinson and Clive Mantle.
