Love, life and motherhood... beyond the convent gates

About the Author

After eight years in a French order of nuns, Eleanor trained as a nurse and midwife in Liverpool, before leaving to marry. She studied French before lecturing in the subject at the University of Portsmouth.


From a secluded world of abstinence and spiritual searching, Eleanor walked out into challenge, disappointment, health problems, relationship ups and downs - in fact, a life familiar to most of us! Her practical, sometimes faltering response, along with a healthy dose of humility and humour, contributes to this heartwarming tale of love, resilience and hope for us all. -- Pam Rhodes
"A unique and courageous story of a fabulous and feisty woman moving from the constraints of a convent to the hedonism of the sixties. A tale of feminism, motherhood and courage." -- Emma Freud OBE, Broadcaster and Social Commentator
"It's a story which could be straight out of TV's Call The Midwife." -- The Daily Mail
"Gripping, funny, poignant, and convincing, it is a powerful evocation of a world about which few of us know." -- Gervase Phinn, bestselling author of The Other Side of the Dale
