Another Great Pre-launch Review!
"Over the last hundred years, modern medicine has given us one life-saving invention after another. It has been an onrush of positive change. In most cases, that is. Women now account for half of all new MDs. Childbirth can be anticipated as safe and routine. But women’s experiences with healthcare have not always been a smooth ride. Jane Loeb Rubin’s new novel, In the Hands of Women (take that literally), delivers (that too) the reader into an earlier time when women physicians were an anomaly, and family planning too often ended up in back alleys of untrained abortion opportunists. Rubin’s fast-paced, meticulously researched novel follows Dr. Hannah Isaacson, a Johns Hopkins’ graduate, through New York’s hospitals, the Waldorf Astoria, Blackwell prison, the Governor’s mansion, and the gilded Upper and the humble Lower East Side in a suspenseful story that captures time and place artfully. It is as if you are getting a peek into a personal diary with all the surprise and heartfelt emotion that evokes. A storytelling triumph and a tale we must keep in the past." Betty K.
