Wandering Educators note: We were so pleased to learn about the debut novel from Dr. Leslie Schweitzer Miller – a New York City psychiatrist, fine artist, and author. Discovery is a story told in two parts: one set in 1885 and centered on the very real historical figure Abbé François Bérenger Saunière, the other beginning in 2012 when characters Dr. Giselle Gélis and Dr. David Rettig meet and fall in love.
