Nothing is more certain in life than change, and this change is bigger than most. In 2009, Leslie Fabian's husband, David-an orthopedic surgeon who'd been privately cross-dressing for most of his life-realized that brief forays into the world as Deborah would never be enough.
This came as no surprise to Leslie. For two decades, cross-dressing had been a part of their lives; but she had witnessed her spouse's devastation each time he returned to his male persona. Once David finally realized he was "more than just a cross-dresser," Leslie encouraged him to become Deborah.
My Husband's a Woman Now is the personal, heartfelt tale of a wife supporting her mate's transition to female, while grieving the loss of her male partner. It's a love story, abounding with tales of the Fabians' challenges, changes, and ultimate triumph over the radical upheaval of their their own choice.
This story can and will inspire you, whether you're transgender, gay, straight-or anything in-between!

That's my one word description for this book. As a patient of Dr. David,and then, Dr.Deborah Fabian, I knew the basis for this book, but not the whole story. I also have never known anyone who is transgendered, and Dr. Deb shared her story with me, to help me to understand, as I know that some of the students where I teach are trans. But after reading the book (twice), I was blown away by Leslie's (the author and spouse of Deborah), honesty and raw emotion that she so eloquently writes about in the book. She has opened her heart and bared her soul as she tells the love story of their life together, both before and after the transition. And after asking this woman to sign the book for me,and meeting her in person, I am more in awe of the love that she and Deb share. I now say WOW squared!!! For anyone who has ever been put down because you are different, I strongly suggest that you read the book, it will make you feel much better about yourself. And if you have been someone who has put others down or ostracized them because they were different than you are, I say, read the book at least twice. I assure you that you will see those folks that you have put down in an entirely different light. This book is and definitely should be an eye opener for all - it is a tribute to the true meaning of unconditional love, and it teaches something that everyone should take from it : just because someone is different than you are, that doesn't mean they should be treated as any less than you are. ALL people must be treated with dignity. Thank you to Leslie and Deborah for teaching that valuable lesson to all who are fortunate enough to know you, now as well as those who will meet you. You are both a testament to overcoming life's obstacles, and coming out better for your experiences in the face of adversity.
