From Library Journal:

Inspired by the life of the first woman doctor in Nebraska, though not based on it, this first novel was written by a former president of the Western Writers of America. Dr. Mattie herself narrates in the informal style of an 80-year-old woman looking back on good days and bad in a long life. In 1885 she became the first woman student in the Omaha Medical College. That took courage, a quality Mattie never lacked as she struggled for years to gain recognition as a competent and progressive doctor. Her career proved more successful than her personal life, which was marred by an unfortunate marriage that ended in divorce. Troubles and all, Mattie is worth reading about in this very pleasant book. Sister Avila, Acad. of Holy Angels, Minneapolis
