The First Vet: A story of love and corruption inspired by real events

Linda Chamberlain

I love the premise of this historical romance (set in 1794) – (the real) Bracy Clark, one of the first students at the Veterinary College of London, set up his own practice in London and devoted his life to the healing of horses and researching new cures, but was in long-term conflict with the (real) head of the college, Edward Coleman. The romance comes in the form of (the fictional) Christina, sister of Edward. The reality is well depicted, but I wasn't so keen on the romance.
