Baker & Taylor
Suffering from writer's block, Alma finds herself enamored of a story she stumbles upon which involves Isabel, director of La Casa De Expâositos, who selected twenty-two orphan boys to be live carriers of the smallpox vaccine in 1803.

& Taylor

While writing her novel, Alma is sidetracked by the story of a much earlier idealist, Francisco Xavier Balmis, who in 1803 undertook the vaccination of the populations of Spain's American colonies against smallpox and who needed living "carriers" of the vaccine so that it could survive the travel time across the ocean.
