Praise For Call the Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times…
“Nicola Barber uses a rich Cockney accent to deliver an insightful portrayal of Jennifer Worth’s memoir of nursing and midwifery in the East End of London in the 1950s. . . . A rare and moving listening experience.”
“[Narrator] Barber is brilliant. She slips into every accent effortlessly, and her Cockney accent is particularly charming. She carries the weight of the stories with ease and affection, and embodies the characters beautifully. ”
“Narrator Nicola Barber . . . does an excellent job of portraying both seasoned and inexperienced midwives as well as the wide variety of British accents. Fans of the BBC series will enjoy this audiobook, as will anyone interested in the history of midwifery.”
