Ciara Penrod | 2 comments Any help would be hella appreciated!!!! I read this book in the 90s. What I remember: it’s on a different planet that is very very hot and dry and there is a female doctor and a delivery person. There is space travel. The delivery person is pretending to be a boy because of how the planet treats women. The woman doctor can’t get in a car without her husband and has to practice medicine wearing a veil. The delivery person and her fall in love and breaks the law somehow. The doctor is executed by being put in a pit during a hot day The final scene is all these woman protesting by tearing off their veils in broad daylight.

Again, I appreciate any help!!!!!
