KIRKUS REVIEW

A biographical novel- the centural figure Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe, whose extraordinary career is too little known to a public that tags him as ""husband of Julia Ward Howe"". Reading like sound historical fiction, the story takes him through medical school, service with the Greek War for Independence where he set up a medical system, and his return to America where in marriage he was to share in the furthering of social welfare. An eye-opening introduction to the beginnings of our national concern for causes.
