The Book

Have you ever wished it could be in your own home? In a familiar environment, surrounded by loved ones? On your own terms and in your own time?

You’re not alone. You may have wondered what families who support a person dying at home actually go through: the logistics, the process, and the unexplored emotional landscape.

How do people enter into the world of the dying?

Turn Right, Good Moon is a book about that world.  It is the story of a woman who wanted to die at home and of the family who helped her fulfill her wish.

Turn Right, Good Moon brings a unique perspective to a subject we approach with reluctance – a perspective of hope. The book can be read as a simple yet beautiful parable, as an almanac of hope, or as a practical guide for ordinary families who want to support a dying person.

A portion of the sales income of Turn Right, Good Moon will be donated to organizations that provide hospice and palliative care.
