A year after the chaos of her brother's Tour a year ago, Felicity has returned to England, determined to become a doctor. Despite her aptitude for medicine, she meets with dead end after dead end, as no medical school is willing to take on a woman. When she hears that an old friend, Johanna, is marrying a doctor she admires, she decides to make her way to Germany, but to see if she can convince him to mentor her. Cut off by her parents, Felicity doesn't have the money to make the trip, until a mysterious young woman (and possible pirate) named Sim offers her the funds- on the condition that Felicity bring her along disguised as a maid. The plan, however, goes quite awry upon their arrival in Germany, and Felicity finds herself on another adventure.

Out of Ten: 9/10
