“Calling Dr. Laura” is the story about how Nicole Georges came to grips with finding out her dead father was really alive. It sounds like a really good story already, doesn’t it? And to hear Nicole tell it, you’ll want to get this book. Nicole matter-of-factly states that she first got the idea that her real father was still alive after a palm reading. That is confirmed by her family. This leads Nicole to seek advice from conservative talk show maven, “Dr. Laura.” This book is one of those idiosyncratic works that will get under your skin. Watch this video of Nicole explaining how it all went down here.
