I really enjoyed this book although it was harrowing in parts.
It is the story of a Midwife in the 1950's and the people that she met in the course of her work.
Stories of a brother and sister who were put in the workhouse when their parents died, Stories of the nuns she worked with and an old soldier she befriended when treating his leg ulcers.
The times range from the 30's to the 50's.
Recommended.
