Reading was a little more productive this week. I finished Shadows of the Workhouse by Jennifer Worth. It’s more stories from her work as a nurse and midwife in Poplar. And it is incredibly moving – it’s hard to imagine that this went on less than a hundred years ago! What a different world we live in today. Hard to believe that workhouses (yes, exactly like a Dickins novel) were still in existance until 1930. Needless to say there were a couple times I had to put the book down. But excellent social history. Now I’m trying to finish up the other books I’ve had going (while I wait for the last book by Worth from the library.)
Happy Wednesday! Happy Yarn Along!
