With the backdrop of the end of the American Revolution, this is the story of 3 newly credentialed doctors. I enjoyed the parts about the medical techniques in use in the 1770's and was amazed that any people survived their treatments! The characters were likeable with a touch of innocence. It was fun reading a book written in 1948 and appreciating the different tone.

Author F. van Wyck Mason traces this story of three young doctors, their careers, their love-making, and their rough and tumble adventures in the service of the young and struggling country.
