A brilliant first book from this new author. I really hope that it will not be her last. I listened to it in one sitting as I could not put it down.
Heidi Telpner packs us in her bag and takes us on a journey visiting her terminally ill patients and their families. We get to meet each one. Some are regular Joe's whereas others are very eccentric to the point of 'crazy weird'!
Most medical memoirs tends to portray their writers as some kind or self sacrificing martyrs with a 'Florence Nightingale' complex. Not Nurse Telpner! In fact after three decades she is brutally honest about herself, the Hospice system and how it has changed plus how she can admit that she did not like some patients or their families on occasion.
How refreshing it is that someone can admit that you don't have to like someone just because they are dying!
I loved this book and I really hope that this brilliant author is well on the way to publishing her second volume.

Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed this audiobook. It tells the real story of how much love,compassion,heartache and energy it takes to care for someone that you know that's dyng. When they have a good day,it makes your own a little bit brighter,when they have that day that could be their last,you sure feel that too. I am more thankful to the Hospice giver after listening to this audiobook.
