Elizabeth Camden once again takes a historical social issue, the treatment of tuberculosis and patients living with the disease, as her focal point in this new novel. She explores the various treatments that were used as doctors tried desperately to find a cure for one of the biggest killers of the late nineteenth century.
She entwines a romance through the plot that keeps the readers’s interest peaked. Kate Livingston, a lovely young widow working as a statistician for the government, once again meets up with Trevor McDonough Kendall, a brilliant doctor at the forefront of tuberculosis research in the United States. Kate and Trevor have a past. Can Kate get around the bitterness of the past in order to work with Trevor in a challenging well paid position at his hospital?
Read the novel. The plot will definitely engage your interest. The characters are funny at times, sad at times, and totally courageous almost all the time! Elizabeth Camden once again makes her female character a strong, smart woman. I like reading about strong women who also have faith and romance in their life. The element of faith shines in the book, and Ms. Camden reaches out with the message that “your life is going to unfold exactly as God intends.”
I would certainly recommend this book to readers of historical fiction and inspirational fiction, particularly people that enjoy strong historical detail regarding social issues. The story has a satisfying end and readers will feel good upon completing the novel. Thanks again, Elizabeth Camden for a job well done!
