When the Call the Midwife books became bestsellers, Jennifer Worth was inundated with correspondence. Letters to the Midwife is a collection of the correspondence she received, offering a fascinating glimpse into a long-lost world. Along with readers' responses and personal histories, it is filled with heartwarming gems such as letters sent by one of the nuns featured in Call the Midwife and a curious list of the things Jennifer would need to become a missionary. Containing previously unpublished material describing her time spent in Paris, and some journal entries, this is also a portrait of Jennifer herself, complete with a moving introduction by her family about the Jennifer Worth they knew and loved.

About the Author:

Jennifer Worth trained as a nurse at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, and was later ward sister at the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in London, then the Marie Curie Hospital, also in London. Music had always been her passion, and in 1973 she left nursing in order to study music intensively, teaching piano and singing for about 25 years. Jennifer died in May 2011 after a short illness, leaving her husband Philip, two daughters and three grandchildren. Her books have all been bestsellers. Clive Mantle has had TV roles in DOCTORS, CASUALTY, HOLBY CITY, THE VICAR OF DIBLEY and AFTER THOMAS. On stage he has appeared in OF MICE AND MEN, THE PLAY WHAT I WROTE, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE and KILLING CASTRO. He has also read The Last Post, by Max Arthur, for Orion. Patience trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and has since appeared in many roles in theatres across the country. She has made countless BBC radio broadcasts of plays, poetry and short stories, as well as regular audio books and television work such as The Day Today, Friday Night Armistice and In The Red.

Review:

Jennifer Worth, author of the bestselling Call the Midwife, sadly passed away in May 2011 following a short illness. Her books have gained a great deal of popularity in recent years with their mixture of warmth, sadness and humour based on her experiences working as a midwife in the East End of London. Letters to the Midwife features some of the treasured letters received by Worth from former work colleagues and fans of her books. The resulting book is a rich testament to a life lived fully and to a very special lady whose memories have managed to inspire and touch so many * www.thebookbag.co.uk * Fans of the four Call the Midwife books that inspired the TV series will treasure this collection of letters to and from the author, Jennifer Worth, who passed away in 2011. Her tales of life in 1950s East End London inspired others to share their experiences of nursing at the time, along with responses from people from all walks of life. Perhaps most moving are the notes from Sister Jocelyn (known as Sister Julienne in the books), offering words of wisdom. * WOMAN *
