Meet the Author: Janis R. Daly

Meet the Author: Janis R. Daly

Saturday, March 9

2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Janis R. Daly will give a presentation on her book “The Unlocked Path” .

An Examination and Celebration of Family History. How the secrets of our past can surprise, delight, educate, and inspire the writing of a novel.

After a career in sales and marketing and raising two boys, Janis R. Daly was inspired by family history and wrote “The Unlocked Path”. She is interested in documenting women in history whose stories need to be discovered. Her second novel will be published in September 2024.

Meet a “New Woman” of the 20th century: educated, career-minded, independent Eliza Pearson Edwards. In 1897 Philadelphia, after witnessing her aunt’s suicide, Eliza rejects her mother’s wishes for a society debut, and at a time when five percent of doctors are female, she enters a woman’s medical college. With the support of a circle of women and driven by a determination to conquer curriculum demands, battle sexism, and overcome doubts, Eliza charts her new life path. Combining science and sympathy, she triumphs to heal others and herself.

Organic Chemistry may slay her, if the strain of endless study, odoriferous labs, and gruesome surgeries don’t claim her first. As a young intern, she summons a forthright confidence asserting her abilities to those mistrustful of a woman doctor. Through her work with poverty-stricken patients, she defines her version of suffrage work to champion women’s rights for and beyond the right to vote. Love is found, love is lost. During a visit to the fairy-tale-like city of Newport, a new relationship may fulfill her desires. When global events devolve into chaos with the 1918 influenza pandemic and a world war, Eliza renews her vow to help and heal.
