3.5 5 Fascinating story of a girl who, through many struggles, becomes a doctor in the latter half of the 19th century, when medicine was just emerging from its primitiveness The story takes us from the slums of London, where we meet Samantha, daughter of a zealous Christian preacher, and takes us to New York City, Upstate New York, where she attends medical college, finally to San Francisco, where she opens a charity hospital with the help of her well heeled friends, and muckrakes against paten [...]

A fascinating read I learned of the frustrating dilemma society had in the 1800s It was considered immoral for a women to learn about human s bodies thus female doctors were shunned and discouraged , yet modesty kept many women from seeking proper medical help as they would not allow a male doctor to see their bodies I did find Dr Hargrave s gain in status going from having to trick her way into medical school to owning a prosperous, forward thinking hospital in less than a lifetime a bit of a s [...]
I read this book to death when I was little I loved the portayal of a strong woman, reaching her goals and achieving her dreams Now that I found it again, I will see if I still love it as much I read it in dutch though and the cover was much nicer hahahaboekbeschrijvingen wood
I really enjoyed this historical move fictionalizing what it would have been like to be a female doctor in the late 1800s A bit of a soap opera, but super entertaining.
The first time I read this book, which was countless years ago, I absolutely loved it and put it on my Best of all time list Make no mistake this is a very good and engrossing book and Barbara Wood is an amazing writer However, after hundreds of books read, I am much cynical these days, and consequently, I found a few things this go around that were a bit disappointing I found that I never really got to know the heroine Samantha although the entire book is about her She seemed just a bit unreal [...]
The topic of this novel fascinated me It is about a woman determined to become a doctor during the last half of the 1800s It was incredible the barriers she had to break through and the prejudice she had to face to reach for her goal It really made me appreciate the freedom I have as a woman today I didn t have any idea how ignorant people used to be about the workings of the human body, particularly the female body, and the weird things they used to do and think to cure ailments, etc There are [...]
no puedo negar que tiene una trama que te atrapa con facilidad y los ambientes son hermosos, pero lamento muchisimo que tenga un punto de vista tan erroneo y que exponga con tanta naturalidad y firmeza que es muy correcto el aborto, la eutanasia y el adulterio loa medicos deben tener pensamientos y acciones moralmente correctos y pro vida Lo nico correcto de esta novela, es el hecho de que mujeres emprendedoras y rebeldes nos abrieron el camino en las carreras que antes eran nicamente para hombr [...]
I recently found this book again after not having read it since the late 80s What a fabulous re introduction Wood s novel is to me Sometimes you pick up a book you loved as a much younger person and you wonder what you ever saw in it That s not the case with Dominaill an amazing read
Although this is an old book, and out of print I think , I bought a copy years ago and have reread it three times I loved the history of the medical industry, reading about life at the turn of the century, and what women had to do to fight for their rights Loved this book
There were some elements of this book which were way too soap opera y in my opinion, but I LOVED being plunged into the life of a young woman in the late 19th century who wanted to become a doctor It was fascinating to understand better the state of medical knowledge at that point and the obstacles women encountered in getting an education and being involved in the medical community.
I found this book when I was 15 and it turned out to be a wonderful story that showed me that women could achieve anything even when the world was ruled by men I thought Samantha Hargrave showed the men in the story that not only men are good enough to become doctors
Una l stima que la traducci n sea tan penosa Contiene errores gramaticales de importancia La novela es entretenida La historia de superaci n de la protagonista mucho m s interesante que sus historias amorosas aunque creo que la autora no fue consciente de ello.
My absolute favorite book I have read it 3 times
Was f r ein Buch, was f r eine Story Wahnsinn Bis auf ganz wenige und minimale Fehlerchen sind vielleicht bei der bersetzung entstanden , ein wahrhaft grandioses Werk Absolute Empfehlung

I was given a free copy of the audiobook and asked to review it I no longer feel compelled to finish a book if it does not keep my attention, and I enjoyed this book to the last page I liked the characters and found the glimpse into the time period and setting of the book to be interesting and enjoyable There were a few times where the author skipped over major events and took up the story several years later, which felt a little disjointed, and I do wonder if all of the medical advances that to [...]
Ok, two things I started reading this book wanting to like it but assuming I wouldn t Maybe I m just an immature American man, but it was too slow and boring for me Second,I need to be fair and say I only read the prologue, which usually isn t very fair But the thing is, having already read the summary blurbs and a few of the most positive reviews on , I realized that the prologue told the entire story in microcosm With a few additional sentences to properly introduce and conclude out, it could [...]
I liked this book, thinking of Victorian era and how things have changed since then I do wonder though if the time line was compressed for the sake of the story I find it hard to belive that all this happpend in the approximate time span of 16 years From the discovery of keeping things germ free, abdominal surgery, etc There was romance in this book but it centered on Samantha and her great desire to become a doctor One woman who when she put her mind to something she accomplished it, at a time [...]

Adoro quest autrice e il suo modo di catapultarti nelle atmosfere magiche e misteriose di mondi e epoche cos lontane da noi Anche quando si cimenta in storie dove l elemento magico e mistico non presente, come questa, dimostra tutto il suo talento e la sua capacit di farti vivere, in modo coinvolgente e indimenticabile, le avventure di questa donna straordinaria, cos forte, coraggiosa e moderna Non si pu non fare il tifo per Samantha nella sua importante battaglia e per il coronamento del suo so [...]
