Farewell to the East End
Following on from the bestselling Call the Midwife and Shadows of the Workhouse, Jennifer continues her story.

Like Megan'mave - identical twins who share the same browbeaten husband; the eccentric Sister Monica Joan; the gauche debutante Chummy who wants to be a missionary.
