The author of Dr. Frau: A Woman Doctor Among the Amish continues her wonderful reminiscences. This time she includes the accident which paralyzes her professional life. Interwoven with the story of her personal struggle are stories of patients who come to see her when she is a patient-- and the memories of delivering babies, battling snowstorms, heartbreak, and joy. "This is a can't-put-it-down book." -- Bookends "She exhibits the heart and mind of a poet in her vivid descriptions and colorful similes . . . Readers will enjoy this well-written account of life as a country doctor and as a patient with the uncertainties of physical therapy." -- Mennonite Weekly Review

About the Author:

No Bio

From Publishers Weekly:

In her first book, Dr. Frau: A Woman Doctor Among the Amish , Kaiser described her work as an obstetrician in the Old Order Amish/Mennonite community in rural Pennsylvania. Here she describes how her career, during which she raised her own children, came to an abrupt end with a spinal cord injury that left her a quadriplegic. Interwoven with the details of her arduous therapy are vignettes of the Amish mothers and children in a reversal of roles, visiting her as a patient, bringing simple homemade gifts and reliving memories of her as their doctor. A journal format also tracks the progress of the author's spiritual awakening, which continues to support her and her husband in their new life. In her straightforward, occasionally banal narrative of personal survival, Kaiser also celebrates Amish simplicity.
