Call the Midwife:
Shadows of the Workhouse (Volume 2 in the Trilogy)

Jennifer Worth; read by Nicola Barber


A perfect choice for Women’s History Month!

The sequel to Jennifer Worth’s New York Times bestselling memoir is a rich portrait of a bygone era of comradeship and midwifery populated by unforgettable characters.

When twenty-two-year-old Jennifer Worth, from a comfortable middle-class upbringing, went to work as a midwife in the direst section of postwar London, she not only delivered hundreds of babies and touched many lives, she also became the neighborhood’s most vivid chronicler. Woven into the ongoing tales of her life in the East End are the true stories of the people Worth met who grew up in the dreaded workhouse, a Dickensian institution that limped on into the middle of the twentieth century.

Though these are stories of unimaginable hardship, what shines through each is the resilience of the human spirit and the strength, courage, and humor of people determined to build a future for themselves against the odds. This is an enduring work of literary nonfiction, at once a warmhearted coming-of-age story and a startling look at people’s lives in the poorest section of postwar London.
