Read in January, 2006

I picked up this book because I really like almost all of Tracie's stuff. This collection of novellas is some of her early work, and her writing has definitely improved since then, since I was not very impressed with this book. It's a collection of 4 novellas, and the only thing that super interested me were women characters who practiced medicine even though it was against the law (in England in the 14th century). Not a recommended book.

anna Actually, that storyline was based on a misconception- it was not against the law for women to practice medicine. Rather it seems to have been more of a case they they had little formal training, and University trained male physicians looked down on them as unprofessional.
