Book description
Beautiful and courageous, Samantha Hargrave dares to dream that she will become one of the first female doctors—and surgeons—in America. Born in the slums of London and possessing a special gift for healing, Samantha struggles to enter the all-male medical profession. When her ambition meets with hostile rejection in England, she sails to America, where she meets an eccentric doctor who takes her on as an apprentice. But at the high-profile Astor Ball in New York, Samantha is introduced to the second of the three men who will change her life forever—and love just might interfere with her ambition.
