Nicola Barber Returns to Narrate Call the Midwife Audiobooks

October 9th, 2013 by Josh Brown · No Comments · Author/Narrator News

Nicola Barber is returning to read the remaining two titles in the Call the Midwife trilogy: Shadows of the Workhouse and Farewell to the East End.

Nicola Barber is an Award-Winning British voice actor originally from London. She has more than 12 years of voice acting experience. As one reviewer wrote of her reading of the first Call the Midwife book: “Barber is brilliant. She slips into every accent effortlessly, and her Cockney accent is particularly charming. She carries the weight of the stories with ease and affection, and embodies the characters beautifully.” AudioFile magazine called her work on the first volume “Rare and moving.”

Call the Midwife is Jennifer Worth’s New York Times bestselling memoir of a bygone era of comradeship in London’s postwar East End. A rich portrait populated by unforgettable characters, Call the Midwife movingly chronicles heartbreak and suffering amidst the consolations of community, and it’s also the basis of PBS’s TV series by the same name that has averaged 3 million viewers (originally airing on BBC).

Season 3 of Call the Midwife will resume on PBS next year. Shadows of the Workhouse and Farewell to the East End audiobooks from HighBridge will both be available in February 2014.
