Reviews

Michael Card-- musician and writer Marilyn McEntyre embodies simple, patient kindness in the pages of this book. Samuel Wells-- vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London When we face our own death, or the death of someone dearer to us than life itself, we perceive as-yet formless truths and strive to articulate the fearful truths we apprehend. What we need is a companion who can abide amid our chaos, a sage who can choose the right moment to share a word, and a prophet who can say the thing we shrink from, yet need to hear. Marilyn Chandler McEntyre is all of these things. Going gently with her into the prison of death will set you free.
