Summary
After a tough childhood growing up in England, at the age of eighteen, Eleanor Stewart said goodbye to her everyday life and entered a French Convent, convinced she was being called to a life of Holy Orders. Eight years later, she left the Order and found herself in Liverpool, thrown into the world of the late 1960s, with its free and easy attitude to relationships. Free from a life of duty and obedience, Eleanor lived life to the full - her job as a midwife, friendships, and love affairs. She works hard and plays harder while also coping with her mother's mental illness. After some foolish mistakes, she settles down and marries - but it isn't an instant happy ending. As a midwife, delivering babies every day, Eleanor knew that she was destined to become a mother, so when she discovered that she was unable to have children she was devastated.
