Farewell to the East End - Jennifer Worth

Paperback - Very Good Condition


London’s East End in the 1950s was a vibrant place – a close-knit community of families where children made playgrounds of bombsites, and where a lively social scene thrived. It was into this world that jennifer Worth entered as a young midwife.

Following on from the bestselling Call the Midwife and Shadows of the Workhouse, Jennifer continues her story. Post-war life could be a struggle – the devastating effects of TB. dangerous backstreet abortions, people driven to extremes by poverty – but there was also warmth and humour. Like Megan’mave – identical twins who share the same browbeaten husband; the eccentric Sister Monica Joan; and gauche debutante Chummy who wants to be a missionary.

As the 1960s dawned, docklands began to change beyond all recognition. Farewell to the East End chronicles the lives, culture and stories of a bygone era.
