The last collection of true-life nursing stories from the No.1 bestselling author of the CALL THE MIDWIFE series, soon to be a major BBC TV series.

Jennifer Worth's bestselling memoirs of her time as a midwife have inspired and moved readers of all ages.

Now, in IN THE MIDST OF LIFE she documents her experiences as a nurse and ward sister, treating patients who were nearing the end of their lives. Interspersed with these stories from Jennifer's post-midwife career are the histories of her patients, from the family divided by a decision nobody could bear to make, to the mother who comes to her son's adopted country and joins his family without being able to speak a word of English.

IN THE MIDST OF LIFE also gives moving insights not just into Jennifer's life and career, but also of a period of time which seems very different to today's, fast-paced world.

Some of the stories are really powerful and thought provoking ...however it sneaks a bit in to religion a bit too much for my liking.

Not an easy book but a must read. I have learnt a lot from this book, and caring profession holds a high esteem. This book should be read by any one who is wishing to care whether in a vocational job. Or simply when caring for a loved one.
