THE DOCTOR IS IN Dr. Ruth on Love, Life and Joie de Vivre

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Laural Merlington

Biography & Memoir • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Articulately written and precisely voiced by Laural Merlington, this is a delight and a wonderful treat for the ears. Westheimer offers a memoir that is entertaining, touching, positive, and sensitive despite her many life challenges. Best of all, it offers frequent flashes of tasteful humor. Although the introduction is voiced by Westheimer herself, the rest of the audiobook is narrated by Merlington. Her mature, appropriately paced narration provides context by nature of its sensitivity. Few may know of Westheimer’s losing her entire family in the Holocaust and her serious injuries in a bombing at the time of modern Israel’s creation. Thankfully, Merlington doesn’t attempt to imitate the inimitable Westheimer—yet she quite skillfully weaves the words into rhythms that are unmistakably Westheimer. W.A.G.
