by By Mark St. Germain • Based on the Life of Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer
Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist, but few know the incredible journey that came before. From fleeing the Nazis and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a scout and sniper, to her struggles to succeed as a single mother coming to America, Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with the humor, honesty, and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel – the girl who became one of the most famous voices in America!
The heartfelt, hilarious, and triumphant story of the girl who became Dr. Ruth! A one-woman tour-de-force from the author of George Washington’s Teeth and Best of Enemies!
