    5 An Indomitable Spirit Stars for the story and 4.5 Stars for the narration Wow, simply wow If you re looking for something that will truly make you appreciate just how far women and medicine have come, then this incredible story of a female doctor surgeon pioneer, set in London New York, and San Francisco and commencing in the late 19th Century, will no doubt touch your heart and humble you A better argument for the existence of the FDA the US Food Drug Administration which regulates food and drug labels couldn t possibly have ever been penned Moreover, the sheer ignorance and misunderstanding of the human anatomy and how it works, combined with the rigid morals of the day, culminated in the perfect storm where unfortunately many women suffered unnecessarily and even died Though this is a fictional story, there no doubt had to be many women and men like Samantha Hargrave the heroine in Domina , with iron wills and an indomitable spirits, who ultimately paved the way for the much enlightened, better, and healthier world that we live in today I will keep the background of this story brief as it takes place over decades and expands over 20 hours of audio, so I could never do it justice in just a paragraph or two Suffice it to say, that Samantha Hargrave was born into a highly religious househol...

    3.5 5 Fascinating story of a girl who, through many struggles, becomes a doctor in the latter half of the 19th century, when medicine was just emerging from its primitiveness The story takes us from the slums of London, where we meet Samantha, daughter of a zealous Christian preacher, and takes us to New York City, Upstate New York, where she attends medical college, finally to San Francisco, where she opens a charity hospital with the help of her well heeled friends, and muckrakes against patent medicine, all opium laced, the scourge of Victorian women We get a sense of what it must have been like for a woman at that time, the prejudices one would have had to...

    A fascinating read I learned of the frustrating dilemma society had in the 1800s It was considered immoral for a women to learn about human s bodies thus female doctors were shunned and discouraged , yet modesty kept many women from seeking proper medical help as they would not allow a male doctor to see their bodies I d...

    I really enjoyed this historical move fictionalizing what it would have been like to be a female doctor in the late 1800s A bit of a soap opera, but super entertaining.

    The first time I read this book, which was countless years ago, I absolutely loved it and put it on my Best of all time list Make no mistake this is a very good and engrossing book and Barbara Wood is an amazing writer However, after hundreds of books read, I am much cynical these days, and consequently, I found a few things this go around that were a bit disappointing I found that I never really got to know the heroine Samantha although the entire book is about her She seemed just a bit unrealistic to me Maybe just a little too perfect I think since the book focuses on her, that her personality should have been a bit defined And her relationship with Mark Rawlins supposedly the love of her life was a bit superficial to me There was just so much you are supposed to assume You really can t follow along in their romance At least not smoothly You have to sort of make jumps and leaps I got the impression that romance is not Ms Wood s best suit But since the book is about so much and most of the storyline surrounding the romance is still very interesting, you don t really mind the lack of attention to the details regarding the romance The thing that rea...

    Ok, two things I started reading this book wanting to like it but assuming I wouldn t Maybe I m just an immature American man, but it was too slow and boring for me Second,I need to be fair and say I only read the prologue, which usually isn t very fair But the thing is, having already read the summary blurbs and a few of the most positive reviews on Goodreads, I realized that the prologu...

    The topic of this novel fascinated me It is about a woman determined to become a doctor during the last half of the 1800s It was incredible the barriers she had to break through and the prejudice she had to face to reach for her goal It really made me appreciate the freedom I have as a woman today I didn t have any idea how ignorant people used to be about the workings of the human body, particularl...

    no puedo negar que tiene una trama que te atrapa con facilidad y los ambientes son hermosos, pero lamento muchisimo que tenga un punto de vista tan erroneo y que exponga con tanta naturalidad y firmeza que es muy correcto el aborto, la eutanasia y el adulterio loa medicos deben tener pensamientos y acciones moralmente correctos y pro vida Lo nico correcto de esta novela, es el hecho de que mujeres emprendedoras y rebeldes nos abrieron el camino en las carreras que antes eran nicamente pa...
