Starting Out by JE Rowney

JE Rowney's 10th novel is Starting Out . It is about Violet, who is a starting midwife with all the hope in the world. She’s studied and worked for this. It’s her dream. But every day she fights to keep her anxiety at bay. Can she really be a midwife? This is a truly wonderful book. It is about a young college graduate beginning her career along with helping plan her best friends wedding. I thought the author explained the anxious feeling Violet has amazingly accurate. I loved watching Violet go through her first days and learn so much. This book is part of a series and I would love to read the rest. This is a quick read with a great message. JE Rowney's past books include the Lessons of a Student Midwife  series, as well as psychological thrillers such as The Woman in the Woods. Starting Out  is a new series but a continuation of Lessons of a Student Midwife  series. She is very active on social media and has her own blog on her website,  Author Contact
