Life Lessons

My Review

So sad to have reached the end one minute I was at 75% and revelling in how Violet was coping and adapting and the next I’m at the end!

I loved the story of the three university students and although there was a lot of focus on everyone at the beginning this helped us get to know the main characters and as the story progressed it became much more focused on Violet.

This is a series I can’t wait to read, the detail of the births and procedures is written in a factual way without complicated terminology to confuse the reader and it genuinely feels like your walking through a birth as you read and are part of Violet’s journey.

A great start to the series that left me keen to keep reading as I felt that I wasn’t ready to stop my journey with Violet.

Book Blurb

For fans of “Call the Midwife”, “Hard Pushed” or “This is Going to Hurt”.

Life Lessons is a new adult chick-lit medical drama, with splashes of clean romance.

Expect an unputdownable emotional page-turner that will take you deep into the life lessons of a student midwife.

Violet wants to be a midwife, but she has struggled with anxiety throughout her teenage years.

With her best friend Zoe at her side, she gets a place at University and starts training for her dream job.

Can she overcome her fears and find the self-confidence to make it through her first year?

Will Zoe’s romance with their housemate spell dating disaster?

Book one of the Lessons of a Student Midwife series.

This book is a prequel to Ghosted, the bestselling novel.

Ms Rowney has recently been awarded the Dinesh Allirajah Writing Prize 2020.

Her third novel, “Ghosted”, was released in January 2020 and quickly also became a bestseller.

She spends lots of time writing in coffee shops, so if you see her, say hello.

Ms. Rowney says: “I always dreamed of being a writer, until I realised that I was. Then I started to write.”
