"Our clinic is manly for the expecting woman," La Senora explains to John Lane when he arrives to take up his post as adviser to the new Ladies' Health Care Clinic in Lima, of which she is proprietor. However the new adviser finds he has bitten off a great deal more than he was expecting.
His six-week stay becomes eighteen months as he struggles to deal with the clinic's desperate finances and to manage the irrepressible and extravagant Senora.
