SYDNEY, Australia – Author Ambrose Keller artfully gives life to medical history by telling it through the eyes of those who practice the art in his recently released book, “Dr. de Weert's Daughter” (published by Xlibris AU). This historically and medically accurate account of medical evolution and real life stories of characters make for an interesting read to all medical and historical narrative lovers.

A young medical graduate discovers a precious item from his family history and reconnects with a distant relative with whom he shares more than DNA. The author tells the story of Sophie, the daughter of Dr. de Weert, who visits him in a series of dreams. The reader is given first hand and harrowing insights in to the history of midwifery and medicine as well as the life and dilemmas of a modern day doctor.

Questions of society’s attitudes towards some aspects of medicine and those who practice it are answered and clarified in this engaging novel. Personal, medical and historical narratives smoothly intertwine in this compelling tale to provide a closer look at the life and adventures of a modern-day doctor as guided by “Dr. de Weert’s Daughter.”

“Through this story, we are introduced to real historical figures who influenced medical practice and some contemporaries who had an immense impact on Dr. Keller’s life,” the author says.
