Heriot's Choice

by Rosa Nouchette Carey

Mildred wants to start her full life at the age of 28. She is looking forward to it until her brother asks her to come help in his home and care for his children. She has to take the role of "Aunt Milly," the almost happy and contented care taker. She meets Heriot, a woman doctor, who has her own ward. It remains for you to see how these women would influence each other. The book examines the role of a woman in society, and asks who is the strong woman? Is she the feminist or the ordinary? Would she be happy?
