The Beauty Doctor

Please join me in congratulating Elizabeth Hutchison Bernard on the publication of her debut historical novel, The Beauty Doctor! I had the pleasure of designing the cover. Here's the book description:

In the spring of 1907, Abigail Platford finds herself unexpectedly adrift in New York City. Penniless and full of self-doubt, she has abandoned her dream of someday attending medical school and becoming a doctor like her late father. Instead, she takes a minor position in the office of Dr. Franklin Rome, hoping at least to maintain contact with the world of medicine that fascinates her. She soon learns that the handsome and sophisticated Dr. Rome is one of a rare new breed of so-called beauty doctors who chisel noses, pin back ears, trim eyelids and inject wrinkles with paraffin. At first skeptical, she begins to open her mind, and then her heart, to Dr. Rome. But when his partnership with an eccentric collector of human oddities raises troubling questions, Abigail becomes ensnared in a web of treachery that challenges her most cherished beliefs about a doctor’s sacred duty and threatens to destroy all she loves.

The Beauty Doctor is available now in ebook and print format on AmazonBarnes & Noble, and iBooks. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and check out Elizabeth's website for more info on her books and her Style & Substance blog.
