Following the death of her beloved mother Jennifer Worth in 2011, Suzannah Worth discovered amongst her manuscripts a folder simply labelled ‘Fifth Book’. Imagine her excitement when she sat down to read and her mother’s distinctive voice came flooding back.
This enchanting new collection from Jennifer Worth’s Call the Midwife takes you back to the East End of London in the 1950s. Heart-warming and funny, these never-before-seen stories feature all Worth’s beloved characters, with a particular focus on Fred, the irresistible Poplar boiler man.
A selection of Suzannah’s favourites from the original memoirs, featuring Chummy and Sister Monica Joan, join the new stories to make a very special addition to the Call the Midwife family.
