Reviews

In Hannah's Gift: Lessons from a Life Fully Lived, Maria Housden delivers a lyrical, heartbreaking and heartwarming account of her three-year-old daughter's illness and death. Among the values she learns from her extraordinary child's experience are joy, a Buddha-like stillness, candor and openness. When Hannah's seven-year-old brother asks the author questions about death, Hannah is fascinated and declares that she wants to be a butterfly when her body dies. When their church has a special service to honor and pray for Hannah, she's delighted. Housden, too, offers readers a gift, particularly those seeking to help a loved one through the process of dying and themselves through the grieving process.

"Maria Housden's testament to a dying daughter's transcendent wisdom, a mother's all-too-earthly devotion, and love's uncanny gift for transforming the greatest suffering into joy and self-awareness comes as a gift to us all."
-Mark Matousek, author of Sex Death Enlightenment

"Hannah's Gift is a celebration of life in all its richness, pain, mystery, and wonder. Maria Housden gives us renewed faith in the transformative power of love."
-John Welwood, author of Toward a Psychology of Awakening "As Maria Housden guides us through her daughter's grave illness, we too receive Hannah's gift to the world. Like a master spiritual teacher, this remarkable little girl opens our hearts to what matters-compassion for ourselves and one another."
-Joan Duncan Oliver, former editor in chief, One Spirit
Book Club and New Age magazine "Superlatives seem pointless. Read it and weep for the sheer joy of being alive."
-Jeremiah Abrams, author of Meeting the Shadow "This portrait of a short, joyous life can be comforting to anyone who has lost a child."
-Kirkus Reviews
