About the Author:

Healing, Romance & Revolution is a labor of love by Carolyn (Harriet's great-neice) and her husband, Dennis, devoting months to sorting dozens of photographs, deciphering handwriting, scanning and transferring hundreds of pages using new technology. The result is a valuable book both for history lovers and casual readers who just want to enjoy the unique day-to-day experiences of a young American nurse years ahead of her time, and see how her experiences parallel today's world in turmoil.
