Dr. Yvonne Thornton, author of the heartwarming memoir The Ditchdigger's Daughters (which has been translated into 19 languages and adapted as an award-winning movie), knows what it's like to overcome steep odds. Born into a family with great ambition but few advantages, Dr. Thornton watched her parents work their entire lives to give their daughters a chance, dreaming of the day their girls would be called "doctor." Now, in Something to Prove, Dr. Thornton brings us along her continued path as a doctor and mother, revealing the challenges of balancing a flourishing medical career with a growing family.
