This is an intriguing and true story of a young American meeting and falling deeply in love with a beautiful German girl just out of medical school. This intense relationship lasted over a year, only to be torn apart by fate and circumstance. Woven within this wonderful story is the fascinating medical journey of this German girl, Dr. Liselotte Mettler, and how she gained world recognition in her chosen field. It takes you through her incredible experience working with the natives in the jungles of Peru as well as her pioneer work in laparoscopic surgery in Germany. The trials, tribulations and death threats hold the reader spellbound. Of great interest is her close association and working relationship with Dr. Kurt Semm who is considered the father of laparoscopic surgery. The professional and personal stories with Dr. Semm are quite unique. Lisa is an expert in laparoscopic gynecologic surgery as well as in artificial reproductive technologies for which her teacher, Dr. Robert Edwards, received the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology in 2010. This book is truly a magnificent story of Liebe – Love and Fate.
