Publisher's Summary

The last collection of true-life nursing stories from the number one best-selling author of the Call the Midwife series, soon to be a major BBC TV series.
Jennifer Worth's best-selling memoirs of her time as a midwife have inspired and moved readers of all ages.
Now, in In the Midst of Life she documents her experiences as a nurse and ward sister, treating patients who were nearing the ends of their lives.
Interspersed with these stories from Jennifer's postmidwife career are the histories of her patients, from the family divided by a decision nobody could bear to make to the mother who comes to her son's adopted country and joins his family without being able to speak a word of English. In the Midst of Life also gives moving insights not just into Jennifer's life and career but also into a period of time which seems very different to today's fast-paced world.

Good, but not as good as Worth's others

Fewer stories, more personal opinion than in the rest of the Call the Midwife series. Interesting, necessary as a topic of discussion and Jennifer Worth has some good and thought-provoking insights, but the topic (death) is hard-going and I wasn't as keen to get through it as the other of her books. Still worth a listen but maybe start with some of her earlier books.
