Can't Wait To Read
From Caitlin Price from FSB Associates:
The Midwife by Jennifer Worth. I can't wait to read this but I want to delve right in to it. Since I was a R.N. This perks my interest.
At the age of 22 Jennifer Worth leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwfe in post war London's East End slums. The colorful characters she meets while delivering babies. From the plucky warmhearted nuns whom she lives. To the woman with twenty four children, to the prostitutes and dockers of the city's seedier side illuminate a fascinating time in history.
There is a glossary of medical terms in the back of the book. I am very anxious to dive right in.
