Kate Livingston struggles with being a woman in Washington D.C. in the 1890s. She’s intelligent and longs to be challenged in her job. When Dr. Trevor Kendall seeks her out and offers her a position as a statistician, she hopes this might be something that will sustain her. When she meets the doctor, she finds the man who beat her out of a college scholarship when they were eighteen. But Trevor has always challenged her in a way no one else has.
Trevor Kendall sought Kate out to help with is tuberculosis research because she is relentless and determined. She doesn’t give up, and with his research, he needs someone who is willing to fight. Spending time in close proximity to Kate becomes a challenge for him, though. There are things she doesn’t know about him. Things that will horrify her if she ever found out.
Elizabeth Camden creates characters the reader can’t help but root for. The medical research aspect of the book gives it depth and heart and there’s also a little mystery thrown in there. This is the first of Camden’s books I’ve read, but after doing so, I would like to read more.
