New Habits Summary

New Habits: From sisterhood to motherhood by Eleanor Stewart

The sequel to the popular Kicking the Habit! When Eleanor Stewart abandoned her vows and her life as a nun, she found herself in the middle of the swinging Sixties - and soon joined in. Boyfriends, parties, and mini-skirts took the place of silence and restraint, as she pursued her career as a midwife and the men she met with equal commitment. Troubled by her relationship with her mother, and what she saw as a growing estrangement from her faith, she finally falls in love and settles down - only to discover her past catching up with her, as she faces infertility. But with her husband at her side, they battle to adopt two children. Will the dream of a happy family, that drove her out of the convent, finally come true?

New Habits Reviews

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
