Visit her web-site and the first words you see are: Who is L.B. Wells? Well, we have the answer for you, at least in part. Author, doctor and fascinating personality LB walks us through her sexy book The White Coat Effect and shares something of her life. But why spoil the fun? Listen to her in her own words.
Below is a description of The White Coat Effect taken from L.B.'s website.
Entitled “The White Coat Effect,” Wells has created a multicultural story that is often overlooked in today’s literary landscape. Her protagonist, Rory, a student from a devout Jewish background, is a late bloomer who loses her virginity in her twenties. Her early interactions with men are bumpy affairs that have her wondering what love and sex are all about. With humor and compassion, Wells describes how her mother kept her under wraps and worried more about the upkeep of their elaborate suburban home than her coming-of-age frustrations.
And then in Med School, Rory falls passionately in love with Amir, an Islamic surgeon from Pakistan. Both families turn against their children when confronted with a love affair that tears down religious boundaries. The resolution of their relationship is a dramatic study of whether love can conquer all obstacles.https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kyle-canon/message
