*"DR. ZASTRO" - Reviews/Comments
   An Exciting First Novel-- from Behler Publishing!
zastro.jpg
      This beautifully written novel explores the joys and 
       sorrows of passion during the 1880's.  Fiercely independent
       Yana, a Gypsy artist, is led to Dr. Zastro's Sanitarium in 
       NewYork City,where this eminent physician uses hypnotic
      powers, and electrical/magnetic apparatus in successfully
      treating his female patients. Spirited Yana is his prime
      awakening in a world of usually submissive women, forcing
      him to question his medical beliefs and structured life. 
     Sparks ignite from their very first encounter, as Phillipe, 
     isolated in his world of science, Yana fortressed in her
     sphere of mysticism, collide in forays of deep emotion. Both 
    defy their basic beliefs, succumbing to passions of deep love,
    bringing them to the brink of personal and professional 
    destruction as they begin to see a world beyond their rigid
    views.This turn of the century narrative presents a 
    microcosm of America in the 1880's and a histogram of the
    human heart.   (Behler Cover Description.)
