|Summary, etc.:||As a young girl growing up in the late nineteenth century, Agnes White is drawn to the "wrong" things. Growing up, she finds herself fascinated by microscopes, dissections, and anatomy--hobbies that deem her unladylike. Yet despite the criticism of those around her, and the obstacles set in place preventing women form assuming traditional male roles, Agnes chooses to pursue her calling to become a doctor, even if it means taking on the illustrious medical establishment at McGill University. Inspired by the life of Doctor Maude Elizabeth Seymour Abbott.|
