Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451128567, Paperback)“Domina is an impressively researched and emotionally involving saga of one of the first woman doctors and a fascinating look back into the dark ages of medicine—a century ago. The strong feminine point of view is compelling and passionate … A book that inspires.”
—Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey, author of A Woman of Independent MeansSet in London, New York, and San Francisco from the late nineteenth century through the first decades of the twentieth, Domina is the inspiring saga of one woman’s personal and professional triumph against the prejudices of her time. 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. Acclaimed novelist Barbara Wood reveals her remarkable talent by capturing Samantha’s indomitable spirit, making Domina a literary triumph.
