Life Lessons by J.E.Rowney

Life Lessons Cover

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.


This book is so well written that I had to keep reminding myself that it was fiction and not real!
Violet is in her first year at university training to be a midwife, she is living with her best friend Zoe who is training to be a teacher and Luke who is training to be an accountant 
Violet develops hugely in this book, she has massive anxiety attacks and is full of self doubt at the beginning but she learns how to manage things a lot better and how to become more confident in herself. It felt like her journey through the first year of training was the main catalyst for her self development
Zoe is so important to the story and without her Violet wouldn’t have changed so much and grown as a person. They are the type of best friends we all wish we had! 
The descriptions of Violets in placement training feels quite real and blurs the line between fact and fiction which can be difficult to do but which has been done so well in this book 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy book featuring huge character development as well as some medical details
