Living With DyingMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
A very special book confronting the act of dying head on and laying out a strategy for living and loving through death and beyond. Although this book tells the story of her husband David’s illness and subsequent death, it is mainly autobiographical, as Grace Sheppard shares her intimate thoughts and beliefs as she tells the story of their life together and in more detail the four years of illness and suffering of her beloved husband. Don’t think of this as a sad book though, it is full of positive thoughts and actions, amazingly so, and this is what makes it an inspiring book to read. So many things impressed themselves on my mind, I am only a year younger than the author, death is going to come to us all and thinking about it and planning to prepare for it is not morbid but can instead be life affirming. Grace Sheppard’s letter to friends at the end of the book is extra special, as it draws together the threads of what she has written earlier. Of course there are sad passages to the story, but the overriding message is of hope.
