Books in Brief – A review received with gratitude

In the just-released July-August 2009 issue of Health Progress, the official journal of the Catholic Health Association of the United States, there’s a review of Journeys in the Books in Brief section, for which I am extremely grateful.  Here are a few snippets of the review:

“Who hasn’t worried over what to say to someone with a life-threatening illness?  Even professionals can find these conversations difficult.  And imagine if the person facing death has barely had a chance to live.  . . .

Though tough on the emotions, Chatelle’s work is likely to prove useful for anyone who wonders how, at the all but inevitable time, to be a source of peace rather than pain for a dying loved one of any age.”

Here’s to everyone’s ongoing search for that peace which passes all understanding, even during the toughest of times.  Melody
