"The author's use of archival documents substantially reinforces the work as a scholarly endeavor. It is an important contribution to the history of homeopathy, as well as to the field of women's biography."- Eugene Taylor"This book is a fascinating biographical feast containing generous helpings of art history, medical mystery, feminist insight and sheer romance! Its scholarship is skillfully woven into a riveting story. While undoubtedly a landmark in homeopathic literature, this book will delight the reader."- Dorothy Hannon-Blazier
