Christine Lee, The Midwife's Sister, Jennifer Worth

Christine Lee is a sculptor based in Budleigh. Born in Watford in the late 1930s, she began her working life as a nurse, training at the Royal Berkshire Hospital alongside her sister Jennifer Worth.

Christine’s memoir, The Midwife’s Sister, chronicles her and Jennifer’s lives from their idyllic early childhood, the disintegration of their parents’ marriage and their unhappy experiences at boarding school through to their own relationships, marriages and children. At the heart of her story lies their strong bond as sisters and their shared heartbreak, turbulence and joy.

Hear Christine talk about her sister, herself and her thoughts on Call The Midwife, the hugely popular television adaptation of Jennifer Worth’s memoirs.

This event will be chaired by Helen Taylor.
