About this deal

Call the Midwife (later called Call the Midwife: A True Story of the East End in the 1950s) is a memoir by Jennifer Worth, and the first in a trilogy of books describing her work as a district nurse and midwife in the East End of London during the 1950s. There's Jane, who cleaned and generally helped out at Nonnatus House - she was taken to the workhouse as a baby and was allegedly the illegitimate daughter of an aristocrat. Peggy and Frank's parents both died within six months of each other and the children were left destitute. At the time, there was no other option for them but the workhouse.

Whether you’re an amateur or an expert home cook, this cookbook will serve up authentic dishes for all skill levels.” This book is filled with all sorts of heart-warming gems, readers' responses and personal histories. There are stories from other midwives, lorry drivers, even a seamstress, all with tales to tell.

One viewer had a great idea for the next book, suggesting a Call the Midwife knitting patterns book. Sister Julienne and fellow midwife Cynthia, close friends of Worth, retained their names in the TV series whilst other characters, though based on real people, had their names changed, such as the enormously popular Chummy played by Miranda Hart.

The book is set in Poplar, in the East End of London, where Jenny Lee, Worth's maiden name, works as a midwife and district nurse, attached to a convent, Nonnatus House (a pseudonym for the Community of St. John the Divine, where Worth actually worked). Fans and food historians alike will appreciate not only the detailed references to the place each dish holds in the show’s storyline but also its greater contribution within England’s culinary history.” The renewal will take the show up until 2026 with its fifteenth season, and creator Heidi Thomas is “thrilled” by the announcement.
