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.

“ideal”

This book should be compulsory reading for nurses and carers.There is an empathy which only Jennifer Worth can portray. She died this year herself and she leaves us with an incredible legacy throughout her work.
