From goodreads.com:

In this follow up to Call the Midwife, Jennifer Worth, a midwife working in the docklands area of East London in the 1950's tells more stories about the people she encountered.

There's Jane, who cleaned and generally helped out at Nonnatus House - she was taken to the workhouse as a baby and was allegedly the illegitimate daughter of an aristocrat. Peggy and Frank's parents both died within 6 months of each other and the children were left destitute. At the time, there was no other option for them but the workhouse.

The Reverend Thornton-Appleby-Thorton, a missionary in Africa, visits the Nonnatus nuns and Sister Julienne acts as matchmaker. And Sister Monica Joan, the eccentric ninety-year-old nun, is accused of shoplifting some small items from the local market. She is let off with a warning, but then Jennifer finds stolen jewels from Hatton Garden in the nun's room.

These stories give a fascinating insight into the resilience and spirit that enabled ordinary people to overcome their difficulties.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Taloyhtiön ulkoremonttia tekevien ilmeisen ammattitaidottomien ja huolimattomien korjausmiesten takia kotini lainehti vettä kahdesti kahden viikon sisällä. Purkuun menevät niin lattiat kuin (pieni) osa seiniä ja kattoakin, mutta kun sen ensimmäisen tulvan jäljiltä olin nostanut kastumiselta varjeltuneet kirjat sivuun ja tarpeeksi korkealle, uusia kirjavahinkoja ei tullut. Asunto on kuitenkin tyhjennettävä, joten kirjat(kin) ovat vailla uutta kotia.

OBCZ Columbuksen hylly on jäänyt kauppakeskuksessa työmaa-aitojen sisälle, joten vien nyt kirjoja Redin Olohuoneen kierrätyshyllyyn. Käy nappaamassa sieltä luettavaa!

Enjoy reading!
