Jane by Robin Maxwell
Jane: Book summary and reviews of Jane by Robin Maxwell
Cambridge, England, 1905. Jane Porter is hardly a typical woman of her time. The only female student in Cambridge Universitys medical program, she is far more comfortable in a lab coat dissecting corpses than she is in a corset and gown sipping afternoon tea. A budding paleoanthropologist, Jane dreams of traveling the globe in search of fossils that will prove the evolutionary theories of her scientific hero, Charles Darwin.
"Given that she also fights enraged elephants and treks deep into the jungle, Maxwell's Jane is so obviously heroic and feminist that the usual tropes are hilariously unnecessary." - Publishers Weekly
