The Surgeon’s Daughter (signed ARC) by Audrey Blake
If you’ve been hanging out at The 52 Book Club for a while, you’ll probably have heard me talk about The Girl in His Shadow by Audrey Blake. It was one of my absolute favorite reads of 2021! (Last year, I even got to have a little chat with the authors about it! You can check that out, here.)
So, it is my absolute JOY to share today’s giveaway with you.
Audrey Blake’s newest novel The Surgeon’s Daughter is releasing May 10, 2022.

To celebrate the upcoming release, we’re giving away a SIGNED advance reader’s copy of The Surgeon’s Daughter to one lucky winner in Canada or the US.
This book is a must-read for 2022. You won’t want to miss the chance to enter!
About The Surgeon’s Daughter:
(From the publisher): Nora Beady, the only female student at a prestigious medical school in Bologna, is a rarity. In the 19th century women are expected to remain at home and raise children, so her unconventional, indelicate ambitions to become a licensed surgeon offend the men around her. Under constant scrutiny, Nora’s successes are taken for granted; her mistakes used as proof that women aren’t suited to the field.
Everything changes when she allies herself with Magdalena Morenco, the sole female doctor on-staff. Together the two women develop new techniques to improve a groundbreaking surgery: the Cesarean section. It’s a highly dangerous procedure and the research is grueling, but even worse is the vitriolic response from men. Most don’t trust the findings of women, and many can choose to deny their wives medical care.
Already facing resistance on all sides, Nora is shaken when she meets a patient who will die without the surgery. If the procedure is successful, her work could change the world. But a failure could cost everything: precious lives, Nora’s career, and the role women will be allowed to play in medicine.
Giveaway will close on Tuesday, February 1st at midnight PST. One winner will receive a signed ARC (advance reader’s copy) of The Surgeon’s Daughter by Audrey Blake. The winning book will be shipped by the author. Best of luck, bookworms!
