Picked up at monthly meet-up.
I enjoyed this but really only for its historical value. Some of the writer's comments would now be considered too non-PC for publication. The memoirs of a young Irish female doctor who set out in her chosen profession in the 1950s are at times fairly horrific, particularly when she writes about the treatment of the mentally ill.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
The author qualified as a doctor in the early 1950s and thi is her story of the first 20 years of practicing. Interesting an an historical document.
