The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O'Melveny

"Gabriella Mondini is a rarity in 16th century Venice: a woman who practices medicine.  But when her father, also a doctor, disappears on a mysterious journey, she is no longer permitted to treat her patients and is forced to defy all convention to cross Renaissance Europe and find where - and why - he has gone."
