Ruth was delighted to enter nursing school at Kingston General Hospital. Nursing had to be a better life than staying in her tiny town, marrying a local boy, and raising a large family for her father's church like her mother had. At first, she fails, and is sent to the local Tuberculosis Sanatorium to build up her skills.

It's 1946, and the San is overflowing with wounded and returning soldiers, women, and children. Ruth must find her way among the dying, depressed, and sometimes too-friendly patients, as well as demanding doctors and a jealous mentor--without getting sent home, infected, or forced into marriage. And she still hopes to make her way back into nursing school.

Author D.A. Brown draws on her own experiences as a nursing student at Queens University (decades later) and extensive research to vividly illustrate the challenges of mid-century health care.

What if the Virgin Mary never ascended? What if she’s been hard at work on earth for generations? What if she finds out that the real story of her religion’s founding has been lost in a melee of male privilege? The former Blessed Virgin Mary has had enough. She’s spent the past 2000 years looking after others, only to find that her true story has been erased. No one knows the real Miryam, the flesh and blood mother, the woman who taught the foundations of a world-wide religion to her often disobedient son. As she lives through her latest reincarnation, she struggles to understand why she keeps returning. Will her study at a Theological College finally allow her to free herself? Will she be able to retell her story, make herself real? Will she find the other half to her soul?
