"Mary Seacole, a free-born Jamaican Creole, claims that from her Scottish father she received her energy and vitality, and from her Jamaican "doctress" mother she learned the healing skills that she used throughout her life...The Crimean War breaks out in 1854, and Mary learns that many British officers she knew in Jamaica are fighting there. With characteristic perseverance, in spite of obstacles placed in her path, she finally arrives there..."

(H.S., p. 246)
