The Surgeon's Wifeby William H. Coles
Mike Boudreaux, as a trauma surgeon Chief of Service, must discipline an impaired surgeon performing unnecessary and dangerous surgery for the obese. He is Boudreaux's former teacher and mentor, and Boudreaux falls in love with his young, beautiful, New-Orleans-socially-prominent wife. Boudreaux cannot hide the adulterous affair that erodes his career authority and reputation. Family and society reject the woman he loves unconditionally; when she moves in with Boudreaux, her rebellious daughter disappears. As Boudreaux tries to retrieve and convince the daughter to support her mother, the jealous husband's surgical career declines; a young patient dies; the public is outraged. The crazed husband blames his wife and Boudreaux for his decline and threatens violent revenge. The couple plans marriage and strains to regain pride and confidence amidst the hostility of accusatory taunts of friends, family and society.

For a freebie. Wouldn't recommend this book for anyone who can't stand typos, incorrect grammar, half sentences and jumping from one subject to another, all in the same parahraph.
Mike Boudreaux is a good man – he has learned compassion for others through long hours in medical training and as a trauma surgeon in New Orleans caring for people from all walks of life. Now, he faces the continued process of distinguishing between physician caring and mutual life-long love. Along the way he recognizes that a deep respect or attraction cannot pre-empt one’s basic goodness. A great introspection into the meanings of love – a must read in today’s social media driven society. RH
