display_description"Jennifer Worth's bestselling memoir evokes the lost world of East End London in the 1950s. The gritty reality of day-to-day life in a city recovering from war, in which families live in bombsites and children play among rubble, is set against the heroism and resilience of the women who struggle to bring their babies into the world and the midwifes who fight alongside them. Funny, disturbing and moving, this special illustrated edition of Call the Midwife, featuring previously unpublished photographs from the time and from the Worth's family albums, brings to life a world that has now changed beyond measure." --Back cover.
