"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, 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?" -- Josh Grossman, MD,FACP, Col.

From the Author
For anyone considering divorce, U.S. legal settlements, custody and aftermath proceedings do not necessarily abide by any consistent set of rules, particularly if they are about justice. Perhaps books like this can foster future discussions about the vagaries of family court.
