Summary

When the Call the Midwife series became best sellers 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 audience 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.

More than I expected

Any additional comments?

I ordered this for completion as I enjoyed her other books. I expected just a to and fro of correspondence, but the beginning of the book is a brief biography followed by letters from mostly fans. There is also a short telling by JW of her time in Paris. I came to her books not long before the TV series began and so enjoyed them from a social history point of view. I'd highly recommend this book.

Fabulous!

I really enjoyed this backdrop to the Midwife series. Lovely to learn a little more about the author & to read the unpublished section about her time in France.
