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.
