Summary
"Ronald was an experienced surgeon, who had worked in London's East End and in the terrible conditions of the Somme during the First World war, but when he arrived in Dartmouth in 1920, newly-wed and looking for a fresh start as a GP, he found himself facing some unexpected challenges. Not only were local villagers unimpressed by the young doctor's new-fangled ways, but he would need all his wits, as well as his medical skills, to deal with the cases that came through his surgery door each day. Whether it was a grumpy old farmer, a manic dentist or a midwife convinced she was being haunted, Ronald helped his patients as best he could, from premature births and the ever-prevalent TB, to attempted suicides. In a world without antibiotics, where there was no cure for many common diseases, life was unpredictable. For Ronald, too, there were times of personal tragedy as well as great joy as he practiced through the depression and the Second World War." -- Back cover
