MARY CARSTENS, M.D. by Mildred Foulke Meese

Email this review


Mary Carstens was introduced to her audience in Wagon to the Star, when she was an ambitious young person in an orphan asylum, braving the world in a city High School. The series has taken her through college, medical school, and now -- a graduate, she is serving her interneship. One of the best of such series, these have built up an interest in a number of characters, many of whom are brought into this last book, which ends with a wedding at the Orphanage. Good career book material -- vocational slant on some of the discoveries of modern medicine; enough adventure and incident; a good picture of the problems women are up against in medicine, even today, and a bit of romance.
