Encino, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
Dr. Kathleen Weisel-Plumb boldly recounts the painful truth that ripped her from the comfort of her life and pushed her into a life of poverty and tears. She tells it through the pages of The Physician’s Wife, a work of fiction based upon many personal experiences and a society with undefined morals and principles.
The book spends four decades and chronicles the changing ideals and morals in society from the innocence of the late 1950’s with the Donna Reed show and Betty Crocker, to the radical 60’s and Woodstock, to the drug and hedonistic lifestyles of the 70’s and then to the materialistic Yuppies of the 80’s.
The author gives a provocative, unique, and rare glimpse behind the scenes of the successful elite class.
“I am the patient, I am the nurse, and I was the physician’s wife.” These were the words that the author spoke when asked why she wrote the story of her life.
An expository account written with raw emotion, The Physician’s Wife reveals the plight of the author which she unwillingly and irrevocably endured. Once in her life, Dr. Kath was once considered to be among the ‘privileged’ class. As a wife of a thriving physician, she lived in a wonderful home, enjoyed fancy possessions, mingled with a sophisticated social class, and much more. However, five years later, she found herself alone in a two-bedroom apartment, surrounded with emptiness. Why is this so? The Physician's Wife tells all.
The Physician's Wife will stir readers as it confronts the reality which most wives choose to ignore—the betrayal, lies, and selfishness of their chosen partners.
This book will be featured at the American Library Association Book Exhibit in New Orleans, LA, on June 24 to 27, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
