The Gilded HoureBook - 2015
The international bestselling author of Into the Wilderness makes her highly anticipated return with a magnificent epic about two women doctors in nineteenth-century New York and the transcendent power of courage and love... The year is 1883, and in New York City, it's a time of dizzying splendor, crushing poverty, and tremendous change. With the gravity-defying Brooklyn Bridge nearly complete and New York in the grips of antivice crusader Anthony Comstock, Dr. Anna Savard and her cousin, Sophie -- both graduates of the Women's Medical School -- treat the city's most vulnerable, even if doing so may put everything they've strived for in jeopardy. For Anna, her work as a surgeon has placed her in the path of four children who have lost everything, just as she herself once had. Faced with their helplessness, Anna must make an unexpected choice between holding on to the pain of her past and letting love into her life.
