My adoration was more than just the heart-warming nature of the stories: The series is set in England, and I’m British.

Share an episode in your own life when your initial dislike for a person was transformed once you got to know him or her better. His Bob Lee Swagger series took the world by storm in the 90s, and he haI knew of Poplar as a station on the adorable Dockland Light Railway, which I took into work at Bank (the station for Bank of England) and knew that if I boarded the wrong train at Poplar, I could end up in parts of the Docklands in which I did not care to be. These stories give a fascinating insight into the resilience and spirit that enabled ordinary people to overcome their difficulties. There's Jane, who cleaned and generally helped out at Nonnatus House - she was taken to the workhouse as a baby and was allegedly the illegitimate daughter of an aristocrat. The book is set in Poplar, in the East End of London, where Jenny Lee, Worth's maiden name, works as a midwife and district nurse, attached to a convent, Nonnatus House (a pseudonym for the Community of St. I descend from three generations of British and Indian Army officers and Indian freedom fighters in both my bloodlines, and nothing rings firmer than this statement.
