1 7299 ELDER, Josephine [Dr. Olive Potter] Doctor's Children
Softcover; Trade PB Greyladies: Edinburgh; c1954, 2010; Very Good 
Faint spine creases, light cover creases and edgewear. Bottom textblock edge has two smudges, one page has tiny nick on top edge as if caught by a fingernail; interior pages clean, none loose. ; When Barbara's husband deserts her, she uproots her family of four children to London, where she resumes her career as a doctor. This novel, written at the time of the launch of the National Health Service, by a practising GP, presents an interesting picture of how a single parent who is also a professional woman copes with the prevailing ethos that a woman's place, and certainly a married woman's place, is in the home.; This title reviewed and recommended by Scott, owner of the blog "Furrowed Middlebrow". Our last copy of this now out-of-print title. Image is actual copy on offer.

2 7194 ELDER, Josephine [Dr. Olive Potter] Encircled Heart, The
Softcover; Trade PB Greyladies: Edinburgh; c1951, 2012; As New 
A lovely new book.; Marion Blake is a young doctor with a growing practice living with her pathologist friend, Philippa. She is totally and happily absorbed in her work – of which we are given fascinating descriptions – until she meets and marries Paul Shepherd, a university lecturer and aspiring playwright. Inevitably conflicts arise when Paul, an indulged only son with his little boy smile, wants “to love you and work for you and have you for myself alone,” but Marion, calm and competent, steadfastly self-reliant, “can’t give the practice up. It’s my child, I made it!” and ‘Dr. Blake’ has to take precedence over ‘Paul’s wife’.

The introduction includes the text of a talk the author gave to the Women’s Institute on her medical training at Girton and the London Hospital in Whitechapel.; Image is actual copy on offer.

3 7186 ELDER, Josephine [Margaret Potter, Dr. Olive Potter] Sister Anne Resigns
Softcover; Trade PB Greyladies: Edinburgh; c1931, 2012; As New 
A lovely new book.; An enthralling novel of nursing in London's East End in the 1920s and 30s originally published in 1931 under the pseudonym Margaret Potter. (The author's real name was Dr. Olive Potter.) From reluctant Probationer to Staff-Nurse and to Sister, the story of Anne Lee’s career is given vivid authenticity by the author’s own experience as one of the very first women medical students at the London Hospital in Whitechapel.

Written at the peak of Josephine Elder’s writing powers, just after the best of her schoolgirl fiction, "Sister Anne Resigns" allows the author’s main themes of personal integrity and friendship to be developed more fully than girls’ novels allow.; Reviewed by Lynne H. author of the 'dovegreyreader scribbles' blog. This title reviewed and recommended by Scott, owner of the blog "Furrowed Middlebrow". This edition now out of print. Image is actual copy on offer.
