When Barbara's husband deserts her, she uproots her family of four children to London where she resumes her career as a doctor. Written at the time of the launch of the National Health Service in 1948, and written by a practising GP, this presents an interesting picture of how a single parent who is also a professional woman copes with the prevailing ethos that a woman's place, and certainly a married woman's place, is in the home.
