The Ladies' Midnight Swimming Club

by Faith Hogan

Book Review Archives 

My Review

In an impulsive moment, Lucy quits her post as a doctor in a busy Dublin hospital. Still adjusting to life after divorce and needing to decompress, Lucy and her son, Niall, return to her sleepy, seaside hometown of Ballycove.


Recently widowed, Elizabeth discovers her deceased husband’s gambling addiction has left her neck-high in debt. Not even the well-established village surgery he left behind will be enough to pay off his debts.


Jo welcomes Lucy and Niall home with sheer joy. Little do they know that the timing of their arrival couldn’t be better. Lucy agrees to practice in the surgery until Elizabeth can find a replacement doctor, and soon after, they are dealt a devastating hand when Jo is diagnosed as terminal.


The midnight swims are what bond and binds these women. Surrounded by the enveloping, curative, buoyant waves, forever friendships are forged. Even when their lives seem to be sinking, the lifesaving link of friendship, keeps them afloat.


A born weaver of words, Faith Hogan delightfully brings to life the majestic beauty and atmosphere of Ireland while reaching readers’ hearts through her heartwarming characters, and their authentic storylines.


Reading Faith’s books is like curling up in your favorite chair, with your mug of tea, or beverage of choice, and sitting amongst your dearest friends. I am a forever Faith fan.


Do read The Ladies’ Midnight Swimming Club.


Thanks to NetGalley and Aria & Aries for the read of Faith Hogan’s, The Ladies’ Midnight Swimming Club.

A bit about the personal me

I am blessed to be blissfully married to my soul mate, and a mother of two amazing, young, bright stars.

(And, a tiny titan 10lb Malshi.)

I am fluent in Italian. LOVE animals. 

Not a fan of winter. I drive a bit too fast.

I am a die-hard 80's fan.

If I could choose anyone in the world to hug,

it would be Nate and Jeremiah xo.


I have traveled and witnessed the beauty of our glorious Earth.

I have suffered, laughed, lived, lost, learned, and loved and

I am a person of great faith. 

I believe in heaven, miracles, and happy-ever-afters.
