People die everyday. While most people in America die in a hospital, many families choose hospice for end of life care. Death, as experienced by hospice nurses, can be beautiful, peaceful, humorous, touching, tragic, disturbing, and even otherworldly. Hospice nurses act as midwives to dying people every day. Death transforms not just the patient and family, but the hospice nurse as well. The stories in this book are presented with the hope that their transformation extends to you, too.

A Must Read for Hospice Nurse
As a Hospice Nurse this book could easily be a must read. It is very informative as well as entertaining for those who share this calling.
My favorite character was the nurse who wrote it. She did such a great job of helping the reader experience each patients diagnosis and care. So well written as to be easy to digest and helpful in practice.
This is a true glimpse into the life of a Hospice Home care nurses day. She shares frankly and personally the experiences she encountered and how she dealt with difficulties and treasured the joys. It is as though you are there with her.The only draw back, in my opinion, was the performance was read too haltingly. The story led me to want to feel the experience but sometimes the reader seemed to get in the way. It is hard to explain but it seemed to be more noticeable in the beginning. I tried increasing the reading speed but that wasn't the problem. Not a big enough deal to stop me from devouring it though. Unusual for me but this is a book I plan to listen to again. It is packed with insight and ideas that I want to incorporate in my care.
