Overview

London, 1886
Lady Victoria Ashton, a most accomplished young woman of her time, has a great affection for humanity, and her single desire is to serve. Only through the love and support of her father, the earl of Ashton, does Victoria become a medical doctor, traveling the back streets and alleys of London.

It would seem as though she has it all-beauty, knowledge, respect from her community, and a growing medical practice. But her world is unexpectedly shattered by the untimely death of her beloved father, and she tries desperately to continue on without him.

With a demanding brother, a supportive mother, and a formulated plan, Lady Ashton finds herself struggling with the art of romance and the world of high society. But, being who she is and where she has been, will she ever find her equal, not only in love but in her profession, as well?

When the competition for Victoria�s affections begins, she experiences a whole new world and must decide where it is she would like to place her heart for the long term. Whom will she choose?

Trying desperately to grasp at every opportunity for a secure future, can one man�s love save her from the secrets of another before all is lost?

Read an Excerpt

As she started into town, she looked to the east and could see snow clouds starting to form, and she knew the temperature had dropped considerably since she had left the house. As the wind blew its cold air, making her face numb, she traveled slowly and was pleased that she had worn the special woolen pants Caroline had made for her under her dress.

Thomas had suggested earlier that she take a carriage; however, she declined, thinking she could arrive faster without it.

Patting Jester�s cream coat, she could not help but think of the fundraiser, Mr. Lancaster, and what the hospital�s real intentions were. She thought it disgraceful, asking for money to fund a library when there were so many needy people that require medical attention. It angered her, and she knew by the sincere look that Dr. Aldermen had given her that he agreed with her wholeheartedly.

Victoria knew that her father would have felt the same, but for all intended purposes and for her family�s sake, she did not speak ill of it. The only positive information that she had acquired throughout the evening was that she could use her name to work the system, to get what she wanted, and some how she would find a way.

Turning onto the last stretch before town, she saw a figure of a man walking along side the road. She automatically thought that it was strange for someone to be walking at such an early hour in such terrible conditions. Feeling that something may be wrong, when she saw him stager and fall, she urged Jester to pick up his pace. As they trotted, she knew there was a good possibility he was a local fellow who had drank too much and simply lost his way.

As she came up along side of him, he was struggling to pull himself up. Victoria could not help but notice the agony on his face when asked if she could help. He was extremely weak and unable to speak. As Victoria watched the blood drain from his face, he drew in what she was thought was his final breath, and fell to the ground.

Victoria steadied Jester, and dismounted as quickly as she could. Bending down, she checked to see if he, indeed, was still breathing and was relived when she saw his breath lifting like smoke into the cold. He did not smell of alcohol, and she wondered what could actually be wrong with him.

I found Francine Michaud-Kupsch's 'Lady MD' to be one of the most unusual books that I have read in a long time. It is truly something in this day and age to pick up a book and find so much inspiration without sexual turns on every page. This author should take pride in her work for it is no easy task putting a polished gem like this in one's crown. 'OUTSTANDING!'

The story flows so well & the characters came alive for me. It is a story showing confidence, dependability, trust, compassion, friendship, and a young woman's passion and quest for a profession limited to men. I think all young woman should read this because not only does it give a conviction about what one wants to do, planning a direction to take, but also shows patience when it comes to relationships and making a lifetime decision.

A well written book. Carefully thought storyline. Great characters. Francine Michaud Kupsch has a real winner with Lady MD. Lady Vitoria Aston wants desperatly to be a doctor, to follow her dreams and desires. Upper society in the late 1800's say's otherwise. It's not proper for a 'Lady'. What's a girl to do? Read Lady MD and be taken through a journey of what the heart so badly wants or give in to what's proper in society. A definite 'must read'.

This book was actually fun to read, I really loved it. The authors eye for detail impressed me until the very last page. The storyline was easy to follow and I enjoyed the fact that she did not leave me hanging in the end. It also made me think about the women of that time; how they sometimes were treated, how they spoke and how they handled themselves.Even though this authors book is fiction, one can not help but to believe in the moral of it all. I look forward to reading any other books that this author has published.

Francine Michaud-Kupsch's Lady MD is a great find for any avid romance reader. It is easy to understand, and it gives the reader a good description of the troubles of high society and gossip. Still, it also shows the reader that, even among these problems, one can be selfless in her work, and one is free to choose as the heart desires. I highly recommend this story to all who want a morally satisfying story.
