To be a woman doctor in the 1920's was tough, especially if you worked in the Welfare Centre of an industrial Yorkshire town. Rose-who had the added disadvantage of being young and pretty-found that she to cope with elderly male prejudice from those above her, and apathetic ignorance and poverty from those she was trying to help.

This is a "jolly good read". I enjoy all of Elvi Rhodes' books very much. This one's from the UK and you won't find the author available in the US.

I enjoyed this tale of a young woman doctor practicing medicine at a Welfare Center in an industrial town in Yorkshire in the 1920s. She meets resistance with the idea of teaching birth control to the poor and trying to help the women have some say in their lives.
