Summary

Summary

To be a woman doctor in the 1920s was tough, especially if you worked in the Welfare Center of an industrial Yorkshire town. Rose - who had the added disadvantage of being young and pretty - found she had to cope with elderly male prejudice from those above her, and apathetic ignorance and poverty from those she was trying to help.
