The_Doctor_ and_the_Diva This lush, sensual historical novel is at times heartbreaking, at times joyous, and always engrossing. Ultimately, this is a story of obsessions and in many instances the book was shocking… Ms. McDonnell’s ability to make this reader evaluate the moral compass of these characters was at turns startling and revealing. I became a voyeur anxiously waiting an outcome, furiously turning the pages, experiencing the gamut of emotions as each year passed and new choices were made. The Doctor and the Diva  reads like a film—each image beautifully painted on the page and coming to life. For me, this was not a casual read, but a consuming read—one that made me think long after I read the last page. MORE

    Sounds like a good book. I will have to pick it up. I just finished with Soul Mate by Ronald Lewis Weaver, and it was interesting in that same sort of dark and taboo way.
