"As the ward of the widowed physician Dr. Leslie, young Nan Prince becomes interested in medicine. But when she enters a medical college, she finds she must choose between marriage and a career as a doctor, between the expectations of society and her duty to her true self. In part an homage to Sarah Orne Jewett's beloved father, A Country Doctor portrays an America on the verge of change and Nan, ultimately, as a courageous young woman with a new world opening to her." "This edition, which reproduces the obituary of her father that Jewett wrote but published anonymously, includes an introduction exploring the rise of women doctors in nineteenth-century America and showing A Country Doctor as a pioneering narrative of a woman passionately following her professional calling."--Jacket
Deephaven by Sarah Orne Jewett( Book )
99 editions published between 1877 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 901 libraries worldwide
While often called a novel, this book consists of 13 tightly interwoven stories, a familiar format for Jewett. Two 24-year-old city dwellers, Helen Denis and Kate Lancaster, visit the rural Maine town of Deephaven for the summer. Over the course of their stay they meet many idiosyncratic locals, including the eccentric lighthouse keeper Mrs. Kew, the town gossip Olive Grant, and others. The two women compare life in the city to life in the country, and Jewett uses their experiences to contrast the two sides of the American experience. Several of the chapters were previously published by Jewett's friend James Thomas Fields in the Atlantic Monthly
