Publisher's Summary

The hit BBC TV series Call the Midwife is based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, chronicling her life as a midwife in London in the 1950s. Farewell to the East End is the third book in the trilogy. Following on from the best-selling Call the Midwife and Shadows of the Workhouse, Jennifer brings her story to a conclusion.

Postwar 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, the identical twins who share the same browbeaten husband; the eccentric Sister Monica Joan; and gauche debutante Chummy, who wants to be a missionary. Farewell to the East End shines a light on the lives, culture and stories of a bygone era and is both moving and heartwarming in equal measure.

This is exactly the same book as another but by a different narrator. Thoroughly annoyed this wasn’t made clear!!!
