Shadows of the Workhouse

Call the Midwife: Shadows of the Workhouse
by Jennifer Worth

Based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, this compelling PBS TV series is now being published in print form. I found the stories flesh out shows that I have seen very well. the writing is excellent and draws the reader into the world of the slums of mid-twentieth century England. -- recommended by Kim J. - Bennett Martin Public Library [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Call the Midwife, the BBC series on DVD.]
