The Scarlet Ribbon Summary


The Scarlet Ribbon by Derry O'Dowd

The Scarlet Ribbon follows James Quinn, a young Irish surgeon battling prejudice, suspicion and personal demons in his controversial quest to change the face of medicine. Following his marriage, tragedy strikes, thrusting James into a life of turmoil, alcohol and despair. Throwing himself into his work, the young surgeon eventually begins to find solace in the most unexpected of places. From the backstreets of Paris, through the glittering social whirl of London, and finally back to Ireland again, this is a story of the thorns of love and the harsh reality of life in the eighteenth century, where nothing is simple and complications of all kinds surround James Quinn, man midwife.

The Scarlet Ribbon Reviews


"One of the first two fiction titles published by the History Press of Ireland. The book throws a different light on Irish history to most Irish fiction. . . . We see Dublin as the wealthy and sophisticated 'second city of the British empire' at the cutting edge of science. I look forward to forthcoming titles." --Historical Novel Society
