The book is titled The Wisdom of Call the Midwife: Words of Inspiration from the Sisters and Midwives of Nonnatus House and was announced yesterday (14th July) on the series’ social media channels.

Announcing the news, a caption read, “Over the years, so many you have told us how moved you’ve been by the beautifully written narrations and speeches that take place in our episodes, and how you would love to see some of these wise words in print… Well, now you can!”

Series creator Heidi Thomas – who has penned the forward for the book – said the book was coming at a perfect time.

“Our lovely, loyal viewers have been asking for a book of quotes from the series for a long time,” she said. “And with our tenth anniversary approaching, I know they will be thrilled with this unique keepsake.”

The book will apparently contain “lessons on love, friendship, motherhood, faith, family, home and much more” with quotes coming from many of the show’s most beloved characters, including Trixie, Nurse Crane, Sisters Evangelina and Monica Joan, and Jennifer.
