Summary (From the publisher):

It is 1881. The city streets are teeming with disease... labor pains are considered a punishment for sin... lethal drugs are sold without prescription... and many men will stop at nothing to keep a woman from becoming a doctor...

These are the harsh realities of the Victorian world into which Samantha Hargrave graduates from a New York medical school, earning the new title Domina, mistress of medicine. It is a world in which a woman doctor who is also young and beautiful has virtually no chance of overcoming the odds against her. But talented, ambitious Samantha dares to invade the all-male sanctuary of medicine; she dares to dream of becoming a surgeon of recognition. And in an odyssey that takes her from London to New York to San Francisco, and into the arms of two very different -- and extraordinary -- doctors who love and guide her, Samantha triumphs.
