Farewell to the East End - Jennifer Worth

Farewell to the East End - Jennifer Worth


From the bestselling author of Call the Midwife


London's East End int he 1950s was a vibrant place - a close-knit community of families where children made playgrounds of bomb sites, and where a lively social scene thrived. It was into this world that Jennifer Worth entered as a young midwife.

Following on from the bestselling Call the Midwife and Shadows of the Workhouse, Jennifer continues her story. Post-war life could be a struggle - the devastating effects of TB, dangerous backstreet abortions, people driven to extremes by poverty - but there was also warmth and humour. Like Megan'mave - identical twins who share the same browbeaten husband; the eccentric Sister Monica Joan; and gauche debutante Chummy who wants to be a missionary.

As the 1960s dawned, docklands began to change beyond all recognition. Farewell to the East End chronicles the lives, culture and stories of a bygone era.
