– Charles Reynolds
This book is an inspiring story of a slim young English Dame Edith Brown her work in founding and building a great medical complex in Ludhiana which was locked in the rigid system which prevented women from being treated by male physicians as there were no women doctors..
Following her dream with intense perseverance and a deep Christian faith, Edith Brown studied at the best schools in England, and became one of the first women graduates in medicine and surgery, and one of the few to graduate with honours. She left the possibility of a lucrative practice and came to India to pioneer as a physician to women. She was a surgeon, medical educator, and administrator. She was honoured by King George V for her work. Her story has never been told to a worldwide audience.
