Four Children for the Doctor

Publisher: Frederick Fell Publishers, Inc.

Have you met the Barkins family yet?

First there is the husband and father, Dr. John, a practicing physician; then there is this lawyer-wife Evelyn; and thereafter, but definitely not in order of importance, Lizzie, Martha and George, the children - and Bradley, not quite a child yet nor on the scene but, nonetheless, the dominant character of the group.

Here is the story of what happens in a modern home when the family's older and already emancipated children (who nowadays are both seen and heard!) try to take over the parental blessed event and turn it into their own pet project. Here also is the story of that inevitable but exasperating and exhilarating phase of modern child-raising in which the startled parents suddenly make the discovery that their marriage is no longer a private affair, but has become, instead a full-scale family business complete with opinionated junior partners.

About Evelyn Barkins

The forthright author of this book, Evelyn Barkins, is the glamorous and youthful wife of a busy practicing physician and the mother of four small, but energetic children. Although in the middle of such a beehive of activity, she remains disarmingly calm and efficiently budgets her time to let nothing interfere with her vocation ... writing such best sellers as "I Love My Doctor," "The Doctor Has A Baby" and "The Doctor Has A Family." All were enthusiastically received by reviewers from cost-to-coast and enjoyed for their refreshing viewpoint.

In addition to being a successful writer, she is an attorney specializing in domestic relations, a cum laude graduate of college and law school, a concert pianist and the fascinating center of an active social life. In this hard hitting book, "Are These Our Doctors?" blonde and dynamic Evelyn again levels her sharp observant wit and personal experience at a phase of vital modern life that has long needed more honest dissection.
