Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Midwives of Raglan Road by Jenny Holmes, read by Anne Dover.
Summer, 1936. Newly trained midwife Hazel Price returns to the Yorkshire streets of her childhood, only to find that her modern methods and 'stuck-up' ways bring her into conflict with her family and other formidable residents of Raglan Road.
Determined, Hazel battles on, assisting with home deliveries and supporting the local GP. The days are long and hard, but Hazel brings knowledge and compassion to the work she loves.
Then tragedy strikes, and accusations fly on Raglan Road. Will Hazel's reputation survive? And what of John Moxon, the man she is beginning to fall for - whose side will he take in the war between the old ways and the new?
A heartwarming, nostalgic tale of triumph over adversity that listeners of Katie Flynn, Donna Douglas and Call the Midwife will adore.
