by Jennifer Farley

A beautifully illustrated children’s book featuring a story on the life of Aleen Cust, who was a trailblazer. She was born and raised in Ireland, and later became the first female veterinary student, and eventually veterinary surgeon in the UK and Ireland. Although she was one of the best students in her class in Edinburgh in 1900, she was not allowed to sit her final veterinary diploma exams because she was female. However, she persisted and became a successful vet, facing many challenges along the way. She returned to Ireland and became a trusted and admired veterinary surgeon in the west. She later drove herself to France during World War 1 and volunteered to help the war horses.
