Call the Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times by Jennifer Worth


The highest-rated drama in BBC history comes to PBS Presents in September 2012
Fans of Downton Abbey and Mad Men have something to look forward to this September with this candid look at post-war London. In the 1950s, twenty-two-year-old Jenny Lee leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in London's East End slums. While delivering babies all over the city, Jenny encounters a colorful cast of women—from the plucky, warm-hearted nuns with whom she lives, to the woman with twenty-four children who can't speak English, to the prostitutes of the city's seedier side.
            Based on Jennifer Worth's bestselling memoirs and already a bigger hit than Downton Abbey in the U.K., Call the Midwife promises to delight millions of viewers in the U.S.
