The Short Story
Become a doctor? Why? It’s not a profession, nor a respected trade. And there’s no money in it. Aunt Bonnie Kinney believes her nephew Patrick is a fool, wasting his chance for success in America by chasing such dreams.
Imagine becoming a physician in the most exciting, pivotal time in medical history in the 1860’s and 70’s! Patrick Kinney must navigate everything from his Irish heritage, the Boston slums, and the trials of moving west. He arrives in Flats Junction at a pivotal time of the town’s existence, hoping to carve out a practice. And Aunt Bonnie becomes less a rock and more a burden along the way.
