Kicking the Habit
Full Product Description
If you loved the TV series ‘Call the Midwife’, this real life account of a young woman’s journey from convent to casualty is just for you. Kicking the Habit is the story of Eleanor Stewart's transition from carefree young woman of the Beatles generation through to a reclusive life in a French convent and on to serving as an inner city midwife.
Beginning among the parties and nightclubs of the swinging sixties, Eleanor’s story is one of drama, excitement, exhilaration and tragedy as she first gives up everything for the life of a nun, and then sacrifices the peace and tranquillity of the religious life for the business of bringing new life into the world she’s denied, but must now re-enter.
Written with honesty and affection, this is an intimate portrait of convent and hospital life that will appeal to readers of biography, social history and the details often missing from fiction set in the rapidly changing social and spiritual world of the 1960s.
Kicking the Habit by Eleanor Stewart was published by Lion Hudson in June 2013 and is our 15743rd best seller. The ISBN for Kicking the Habit is 9780745956114.
