Call The Midwife – Shadows Of The Workhouse

I didn’t realize this was part of a trilogy when I picked up this book.  The television series is fantastic and I knew I would enjoy this story about the workhouses in the 1950’s.  If you are a fan of the show, you will love this book that goes into deeper detail of some of your favorite episodes, with a severe painting of wartime, and those affected by poverty during that era in England.  Visit with Sister Monica Joan, Peggy and Frank and Jane along with Jenny Lee.   I will be reading the others in the series – Enjoy!
