In 1898 two young women doctors arrived in Hove and nervously set up in general practice. Twenty eventful years later Brighton & Hove had two Women's hospitals.

This book is a unique blend of social and local history set against a vivid backdrop of Edwardian Brighton, World War I, and the struggle for women to forge a place in public life.
