To the collections of personal memoirs like "Life with Father" is added this account of the life of a doctor and his wife, told by a lady with a sense of humor. Dr. Porter has practiced in Richmond for a good many years, and Mrs. Porter has observed with him the comings and goings of the medical elite and has indeed gone with him to some of the far places in the world. Like most doctors' wives, Mrs. Porter has had a full life. She tells about it gleefully. James Branch Cabell says it is "a lively, uninhibited volume which richly, in my judgment, merits praise. A beautiful book, alike in format and its matter."
