Summary

From best-selling Irish writer Faith Hogan, The Ladies' Midnight Swimming Club is an emotional story about finding new friends and living life to the fullest, that will appeal to fans of Sheila O'Flanagan, Heidi Swain and Liz Fenwick.

When Elizabeth's husband dies, leaving her with crippling debt, the only person she can turn to is her friend, Jo. Soon Jo has called in her daughter, Lucy, to help save Elizabeth from bankruptcy. Leaving her old life behind, Lucy is determined to make the most of her fresh start. As life slowly begins to return to normal, these three women, thrown together by circumstance, become fast friends. But then Jo's world is turned upside down when she receives some shocking news. In search of solace, Jo and Elizabeth find themselves enjoying midnight dips in the freezing Irish Sea. Here they can laugh, cry and wash away all their fears. As well as conjure a fundraising plan for the local hospice that will bring the whole community together....

The Ladies Midnight Swimmimg Club

If your ever thinking of ways to bring together communities through simple acts of kindness and a natural free hobby, then this heartfelt story is a must read, the introduction to all the characters was enriching and spurred on by each others kindness .. a wonderful read. Uplifting and inspiring. My first book which I used audible, really enjoyed the Irish narrators voice.
