    'A Physician's Plight' is an intriguing read that shouldn't be missed

It isn’t only Katherine Klein’s medical school education, residency training, and launching into practice that’s so demanding, but what creeps into her personal life along the way.

Katherine is a naive teenager with a contentious home life who marries despite her parents’ disapproval. After her husband finally agrees to have children but doesn’t change his ways, her tolerance wanes, tension mounts, and the marital situation becomes explosive. Her husband refuses to leave the marital home and she is forced to flee with her children.

This compelling and shocking story is also the heart-wrenching plight of a mother and a disclosure of the vagaries of US Family Courts.

“Faced with the unfairness of the courts that favor non-earners in a relationship, Katherine tells how her life in dealing with the sick is a stress relief versus her personal life. A Physician’s Plight is an intriguing read that shouldn’t be missed for readers of personal memoirs.”
Mary Cowper, Reviewer
The Midwest Book Review

“This book pulls no punches - nothing is sacred, nothing is left out! Anesthesiologist Katherine Klein, MD, gives us “the good, the bad, and the ugly” of her family-of-origin, her marital suffering, and her divorce, which landed her in Family Court and deprived her of participation in much of the lives of her young children and - would you believe - the Family Court citing “income discrepancies” - she was forced by the court to pay not only her own legal fees but those of her ex-husband!” ….

“Might pre-marital counselors encourage young couples to read this thoughtful, valued text before their first marriages? Will the young couples, believing their young love to be unique, blithely ignore this text and forge ahead, perhaps landing in Family Court much as the author?”
