Victorian Society recoiled at the thought of a woman learning about the human body. Yet in 1847, Elizabeth Blackwell was determined to become a physician--one who would not just improve the practice of medicine, but would also provide desperately needed medical care for the women of her time. Author Nancy Kline vividly re-creates Blackwell's world and her struggle to gain knowledge and acceptance in the closed, males only world of medicine.
