In the New Town, medical student Will Raven is about to start his apprenticeship with the brilliant and renowned Dr Simpson. Set in Edinburgh in 1847 using research from Marisa Haetzman's Master's in the History of Medicine, The Way of All Fleshcontains real life characters and events, including Dr James Simpson, the invention of anaesthesia and its early use in obstetric procedures, the influence of the newly established Free Church of Scotland and the work of photography pioneers David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson.
