An intimate portrait of convent and hospital life. What makes a fun-loving teenager turn her back on a life of parties to become a nun? And what later leads her to abandon the religious life and marry? Aged 18, Eleanor Stewart entered a convent in France. After four years of struggling with religious life, she then trained as a midwife in an inner-city hospital in Liverpool.
