CONNIE BELL, M.D. by Helen Tann Aschmann


Email this review


For girls who enjoy reading about strong-willed-women, this drawn-out saga of Connie Bell, who sacrifices almost everything possible to become a doctor (in the mid-nineteenth century when it was most difficult), may be a satisfying book. For those lacking in suffragette sympathies, Connie's countless troubles and victories may prove to be repetitious and tiresome. In a style on the wordy side and dialogue on the stiff side, the author follows her subject doggedly from beginning to end. And brave Connie of course winds up with two MDs-- her own hard earned one and the handsome Dean of Admissions at Chicago Medical School.
