Product Details

The funeral attendant who arrives to prepare Dr James Barry's body is shocked by what she discovers. It seems that the former Colonial Medical Inspector for South Africa and surgeon, known for his temper outbursts had a hidden a secret. What is the connection between him and the woman Margaret Anne Bulkley who in 1800 London desperately wanted to be surgeon, but only men could train as doctors.

An eye opening insight into a period in history and the life of real surgeon. When lots in medicine was still to be discovered and set in turbulent times.

Highly recommend for 12+ years, and slightly younger children who can handle the sometimes brutal realities of life as a surgeon in the 1800s.
