Farewell to the East End by Jennifer Worth( Book )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The East End of London in the 1950s was a vibrant place, with a close community. Families often lived within streets of each other, children made playgrounds of the bombsites, and clubs and pubs formed the centre of a lively social scene. However in the living conditions of post-war London, life was often a struggle. It was into this community that Jennifer Worth came as a midwife, working with the nuns of Nonnatus House. She tells of the devastating effects of tuberculosis on one family, the dangerous practise of back-street abortions, and of mothers driven to extremes by poverty or social pressure. As the 1960s dawned the docklands began to change beyond all recognition. Farewell to the East End charts these years

"It's 1958 and the hard-working midwives of Nonnatus House continue to serve the crowded tenements and slums of Poplar. As they struggle with the challenges of poverty, domestic abuse and the spectre of TB, the midwives also face crises of their own. A chance encounter reunites Jenny with Jimmy; Chummy and P.C. Noakes face a dilemma over their imminent future; a tragic birth puts Cynthia in the spotlight and Trixie enjoys an all-too-tantalising taste of celebrity lifestyle. Back at Nonnatus House, Sister Julienne struggles to keep the beleaguered convent on an even keel as dementia-stricken Sister Monica Joan finds comfort in the friendship of new orderly, Jane; Sister Bernadette experiences a spiritual crisis and Sister Evangelina puts her foot down regarding pain relief"--Container
