Jennifer Worth’s popular Call the Midwife captured recollections of working as a midwife in East London in the 1960s. In Shadows of the Workhouse, Worth picks up the stories of some of those featured in the first book. This book again provides fascinating insight into the lives of the poor in 1950s London, living in the shadow of the workhouse but making the best of their situations with resilience and spirit.
