We had hospice with a family member a few years ago, and some of the things our family member said and did, we didn't understand. we didn't think to ask the hospice nurses at the time, so this book has explained many things we were wondering about. So in the end, it helped us also.
I have become overly curious about heaven. I have a sister, Joy, who passed away in 1988 and a hospice nurse helped her to understand who Jesus was and did for her at the cross. She died peacefully. I borrowed this book from my church library so I would have something to read while on the treadmill. I loved it so much. The short stories are an easy read and I could stop and ponder after each story. I bought two copies but will probably buy more. One for my sister Jane who was there for my sister Joy until the end and one for our home library so I can loan it out.
I am a hospice social worker/bereavement counselor and I think this book is awesome. I suggest it to many of my clients, gave a dozen of them as Christmas presents recently. Very encouraging and faith-based.
I'm not sure what I expected, but each story about the dying patients is about 2 pages long, and with similar outcomes. I am glad she wrote the book, it confirms my faith that Jesus is alive. However, the book is feeling repetitive at the moment--I'm not sure what her goal was.
