The Doctor And The Diva

Adrienne McDonnell

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A breathtakingly epic love story about a young doctor and a beautiful opera singer who pursue their affair to the ends of the earth.

1903, Boston. Dr Ravell is a young obstetrician whose reputation for helping couples conceive has made him a rising star. He is flattered when a family of illustrious physicians turns to him to treat one of its own members.

Erika von Kessler is a beautiful and ambitious opera singer who has struggled for years to become pregnant. As the young doctor s attraction to her increases, and his treatments prove ineffectual, Erika s despair worsens.

And when Dr Ravell takes a great risk that may imperil his promising career, a secret he can share with no one, it is a decision that will change their dreams and destinies.

What ensues is an unforgettable love story that sweeps across snowy Boston, a lush island of the Caribbean, to the graceful piazzas and opera stages of Italy.
