Hello,

I have a break in the sense that right now I am not taking classes, but I would love to keep myself in the milieu of learning (anatomy and physiology) with some great novels and even historical novels about medicine and anatomy or health.

Recommendations are appreciated!

Ohhhh, loved the 'Mistress of the Art of Death' series by Ariana Franklin. Set in Medieval England (under Henry II) they center on Adelia, educated at the University of Salerno, a prodigy in anatomy and detection. She's more of a pathologist but does also end up having to treat patients. But Cambridge at the time is rather superstitious...and not exactly keen on a woman doctor!

Titles in the series are:

Mistress of the Art of Death

The Serpent's Tale

Grave Goods

A Murderous Procession

City of Shadows? That is also an excellent book...set in Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power in the 1920s/1930s. Lots of intrigue with Russian nobility exiled after the revolution plus a scheme to put forth an imposter as the real Anastasia who survived the massacre of the Russian royal family. I really enjoyed it...but not medical at all!
