If you could sum up Call the Midwife in three words, what would they be?

heartfelt, humanitarian, funny.

I found Stephanie's narration fantastic. all the characters were brought to life with warmth and compassion, especially Sister Evangelina. The cockney banter is lovely.

10 years hard labour

Call the Midwife. Informative and moving book

True factual history of life before the Dawn of the NHS in 1948. The year I was born to a young Mother in London who had run away from the Vallies in S.Wales. Had my birth been any sooner well I might not be here today.
A very well written book.
The account of life in the slums of the East end
of London. For anyone thinking that there life was tough read this book and thank Heaven
and all that is.. that the Workhouses have been
abolished. That young children are cared for by a welfare state. Profoundly moving book.

Loved this book!

Beautifully read by Stephanie Cole - who i remember well from her Tenno days.

And what a fabulous foray into 50s East End London & the world of midwifery. Beautiful journey that I’m looking forward to continuing with the next book.
