I've wandered just a little way from home territory for my next series which is about a female doctor in the early thirties fighting and finding her way in a male dominated profession. She's a feisty woman brought up by her feisty adoptive mother and guardian. It is from her, a prominent suffragette, that she's inherited the determination to succeed. Being a mouse isn't her - which gets her into trouble. At the same time as losing her guardian and her home she also loses her job. Her reputation goes before her. It's difficult to get a position at another hospital but respite comes in the form of the offer of a position at the Orchard Cottage Hospital, a small place in a small town situated in the heart of Somerset's coal field and quarrying interests. It's a long way from London but Doctor Frances Brakespeare is a resolute woman and intends to survive and serve the locals to the best of her ability. This includes setting up birth control and baby facilities for local women. The town seems peaceful enough but there are secrets beneath the surface. There's also a mystery to solve. Why does the name of her fiance, killed in the Great War, appear on the War Memorial in the heart of the town? It seems being offered the job is not quite the coincidence she thought it was and neither is the truth about her sweetheart's last resting place which has repercussions going way back and involving those in British Army high command.
