Set in 1876 a few years after the Emancipation Proclamation, this story is a story that weaves history, romance, and gives a view of what life would’ve been for free Black people.
The beautiful, Vivid Lancaster, is attempting to garner respect as a woman physician in a time where women are only tasked with being barefoot and pregnant. She is learning a new town and figuring out life and love.
The life that Black people had to carve out after slavery was brand new terrain. And the modern comforts that we have now are easily taken for granted. Reading this, it reminds me that so much blood, sweat , and tears had to go into creating cities and navigating the medical needs of people.
This book is entertaining and gives enough info so that the reader may explore other subjects more in depth. I definitely recommend this book.
