Book DescriptionIn 1661 a brother and sister stagger off a ship to seek a new life in the Dutch settlement of Nieuw Amsterdam. Lucas Turner is a barber surgeon; Sally Turner an apothecary. Both gifted healers, they are bound to each other by blood and necessity but as their new lives unfold, betrayal and murder make them deadly enemies. Their descendents - dedicated physicians and surgeons, pirates and whoremasters - will shape the future of medicine and a new city. Interweaving the fate of two pioneering families with a young country's struggle for freedom and the birth of modern medicine, this is an unforgettable tale told by a master storyteller.
