it was amazing
bookshelves: childrensbooks, historicalfiction, 19th-century
Read in January, 1972

Kathryn Worth's four novels are among my favorites, and this is particularly unusual in that the heroine is an aspiring doctor in the 19th century. Her uncle promises to help pay for her training if Maggie can learn to govern her temper and raise half of the necessary funds herself. That is indeed hard to do but equally difficult is for a young woman to earn money in this era. In addition, there is an appealing young man for Maggie to consider: can she include him in her future plans without giving up her ambitions?

Melody I blame the Maud List for the fact that I always misread this title as The Middle Burton.

message 2: by CLM (new) - rated it 5 stars

CLM I guess that would be Laurie although there are several brothers who get very little play time! Don't they read??

Melody I don't believe in the brothers. I think they must be figments. ;-)
