    Sarah Orne Jewett's pioneering novel about the making of a woman doctor in nineteenth-century New England

    A hundred and thirty years after it was first published, Sarah Orne Jewett s story of a young medical woman remains an incisive rendering of the dilemmas of gender, society, and self. Nan Prince first becomes interested in medicine as a child, as the ward of the widowed physician Dr. Leslie. In time she becomes his protegee. But when she enters medical college, she realizes that she will have to choose between marriage and her career, between the demands of her society and her obligations to her true self. Inspired by Jewett s own interests and by her father, 'A Country Doctor' portrays a world very much in flux and Nan, ultimately, as a woman with a new world opening to her.
