9780745956114: Kicking the Habit: From Convent to Casualty in 1960's Liverpool

Perfect for fans of the show Call the Midwife, a humorous and intimate portrait of convent and hospital life

At the age of 18, Eleanor Stewart moved to France to enter a convent. After four years of preparation, she became a nun, and, eight years later, decided to get trained as a midwife in a large inner-city hospital in Liverpool. While Beatlemania grips the world, she tries to coordinate the demands of religious life with the drama, excitement, and occasional tragedy of the hospital world. Written with honesty and affection, this is an intimate portrait of convent and hospital life.
