Overview

This new © 2015 paperback version is the ONLY edition available anywhere that includes a marvelous new, never before published Introduction personally written by Goodrich late in her life about living in New York, studying at Columbia University and writing The Doctor and Maria Theresa. Be sure your copy includes this wonderful story, all for less than $13.99.

In the early 1920's it seemed that the hand of change could never touch rural New England. In the village of Pembroke, the doctor could always be counted on if things became too hard. His granddaughter was a withdrawn child but she went everywhere with him, carrying his medical case and serving as his assistant. He would tell her of his boyhood when he first heard her grandmother's voice and loved her from that moment. The story continues leisurely, perceptively and wise through the Twenties until the day the doctor sensed that even the remote villages would feel the terrible changes that lay ahead. Norma Lorre Goodrich writes of her native New England with warmth and a deep understanding of the people she describes.
