Book Number: 15

Number Of Pages: 330

Book Title: Barnmorskan i East End - del 2

Author: Jennifer Worth

Summary: While the first memoir focused more on the midwifery, this one is mainly about the people she got to know during her years in London.

 

GhostMouse - I do too so when I saw my local library had these books I just had to read them. I think the show's captured the overall feel of the memoirs and not strayed too far away from them. Character wise especially sister Monica Joan is spot on; just as eccentric in the show as she's described in the memoirs. ^^

They're definitely worth a read.
