The East-End stories that inspired the BBC TV series, CALL THE MIDWIFE, in a gorgeous gift box.

London's East End in the 1950s was a tough place: the struggles of post-war life - bombsites, overcrowded tenements, crime, brothels - bred a culture of tight-knit family communities, larger-than-life characters and a lively social scene. It was into this world that Jennifer Worth entered as a trainee midwife. But docklands life was tough, and babies were often born in slum conditions.

In funny, disturbing and heartbreaking stories, Jennifer Worth recounts her time among nuns, prostitutes, abortionists, bigamists, gangsters and expectant mothers, portraying East Enders' amazing resilience - and their warmth and humour in the face of hardship. Written with affection and nostalgia, her midwife stories chronicle the lives, traditions and tales of a bygone era.

    I have watched the TV series and was surprised how accurate to the books it was. The TV series was softened a little in comparison. I wanted more and more, I wish it would keep going. Loved the stories about Joe. I shed a few tears throughout the three books.
