About this deal

Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. The sale of customised goods or perishable goods, sealed audio or video recordings, or software, which has been opened. Don't get me wrong, they are still good but just quite so good as the first but definitely well worth a read! None of the Parliamentary Acts or amendments intended to create houses of horrors, and yet it all transpired. However, on a special episode which was released on Christmas 2014, the elderly English actress Vanessa Redgrave appears as the aged Jennifer Worth.

Working side–by–side among the sisters, Worth soon learns that they, too, possess compelling histories.

She wrote her first book in 2002 as a candid but compassionate telling of the stories from that community she felt had been ignored whilst she was working as a nurse and midwife in the poverty-stricken Poplar in the East End of London. Equally astonishing is Worth’s recollection that she and her colleagues—unlike the area’s policemen—could safely traverse the East End’s unlit roads at night, alone. Series seven, again consisting of eight episodes, began airing on Sunday, 21 January 2018, with episode one viewed by 9. Absolutely jaw-dropping tales of the 50s in London, the men, the women prior to any kind of birth control, the lack of sanitary conditions, clean and accessible water and toilets, and the unfortunate back alley remedy of unwanted pregnancy. This is not intended to be a full statement of all your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations.

On a sultry California afternoon, I resisted slumber by looking through Netflix for something new to hum in the background whilst I worked. I enjoyed the stories and anecdotes about life in the convent, the nuns, the nurses and the situations they encountered.

It is also broadcast in the United States on the PBS network; the first series started on 30 September 2012. Record number of delegates head to biggest ever BBC Worldwide Showcase in Liverpool to celebrate a significant anniversary".

All in all, this book revisits and exemplifies the lives of London’s East End in the face of adversity, and the poor working and living conditions which midwives experienced in London’s East End but the aid workers soldiered on for the betterment of the society. Our Non-Fiction Range includes: Academic, Photography, Audio books, Business, Cook Books, Craft Books, Health and Fitness Books, Mind, Body, Spirit (Tarot). The Pill was yet to be introduced, and the average nuclear family was several times larger than it is today. Sarina enjoys bringing forth a different perspective and encouraging a different way of thinking through her writing. Share an episode in your own life when your initial dislike for a person was transformed once you got to know him or her better.However, with between 80 and 100 babies being born each month in Poplar alone, the primary work is to help bring safe childbirth to women in the area and to look after their countless newborns. I am interested in Workhouse history as I am a volunteer guide at the last remaining building of the Guildford Union Workhouse.

If one has had the privilege of having grown up in this indomitable country, one knows the unconquerable attitude of which I speak. Childbirth has drifted away from being a natural event into a medical condition requiring medical treatment.She uses these systems to disseminate social aspects such as competition, cooperation, domination, and equality. We are a team of very passionate book lovers dedicated to providing you with a wide variety of books for all interests. Jennifer Worth trained as a nurse at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading and was later ward sister at the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in London, then the Marie Curie Hospital, also in London. She spent her life uncomplainingly in the midst of abject poverty and large amounts of illiteracy and yet maintained her superior intellectual abilities. By the time of Jennifer Worth’s death in June 2011, her books had already sold almost a million copies.
