Inspired by the true-life account of Margaret Anne Bulkley, With a Silent Companion recounts the remarkable journey of a determined young woman born in eighteenth-century Ireland. With her father in debtor's prison and her mother's palsy worsening, Margaret and her mother journey to London to seek a better future. But as each attempt to make a living fails, their hopes are slowly abandoned.

Fearful that she and her ailing mother will be unable to support themselves after their meager financial reserves run out, Margaret makes the most extraordinary decision of her life. Her heart broken by the constant threat of poverty but her spirit awakened by the challenge of two moneyed gentlemen, she enrolls in medicine at the renowned University of Edinburgh and, after years of dedicated study, becomes a surgeon.
