New England author Janis Robinson Daly will be discussing her historical fiction novel The Unlocked Path

The Unlocked Path presents and embraces a “New Woman” of the early 20th century: educated, career-minded, and independent. In 1897 Philadelphia, after witnessing her aunt’s suicide, Eliza Edwards vows to find ways to help and heal. Rejecting her mother’s wishes for her society debut, Eliza enters medical college at a time when only five percent of doctors are female. With the support of a circle of women and driven by a determination to conquer curriculum demands, battle sexism, and overcome doubts, Eliza charts a new life course. Combining science and sympathy, can she triumph to heal others and herself?
