Julia Bernay is pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor, but she has a few challenging classes that she must pass. Julia rushes to help when a man is injured in an underground accident, when she goes to check on him after saving his life, she asks him to help her with latin.
Michael Stephenson is a barrister, is sister wants him to marry within his class and station, but he can't forget about the fiercely independent woman who stole his heart and saved is life. Michael is also working on a case of libel against the London School of Medicine for Women by the powerful Earl of Westbridge, who wants to shut down the school his daughter Edith Morton attends.
Even though they are opposite sides of the case, Michael is drawn to Julia, does their love have a chance?
Michael and his sister grew up within society's sphere, but when their father lost their money, is sister, Corinna, married a wealthy man to save their family, and it afforded his the opportunity to go to school and become a lawyer.
Michael admires Julia so much, he's never met a woman like her before, so in love with learning, with a natural instinct about people. He likes her straightforward attitude, and how she doesn't care a fig for his money or his money, she has a passion for truly helping people. But will Michael and Julia's growing friendship put his whole career on the line, as well as his family's social standing?
Overall, this is a fantastic read, with great characters, and a compelling story. Julia is a inspiring heroine, she has a passion for her work and for learning, I love how she wants to serve others with her gifts and knowledge, she is direct and knows how to get things done. I really liked how Michael takes a second look at his life and faith over the course of the book. David, Corinna's husband is a wonderful man, full of grace and patience. My favorite book of the series so far, I read the first book in the series and enjoyed it, but this sequel is utterly fantastic!
