A clear-eyed look at the facts and feelings of the journey to the end of life allows the author to use her experiences as a caregiver to her beloved to bring hope and solace. Her faith drives her need to offer real empathy in ageing, as she welcomes her own passing years.

Using poetry, meditation, prayers, and essays, she explores some of the pathways to the end of life. Practical and spiritual, personal and borrowed wisdom mixes in a rich potpourri of the ways to approach our final act here on earth — death.

You are not alone in your journey. Here is a woman who warmly offers her hand as friend and companion on the way.
