We, the authors of this story, are Good Moon’s children. We certainly didn’t plan to tell the story of our mother’s death. The story simply happened to us, around us and through us, as stories sometimes do.
In the afternoon, we sat around the dining room table. The nurse from Hospice had check on Good Moon, and now she was working with us, explaining how the dying die.
When Good Moon said that more should be written about dying at home, and when she told us she was pleased that we were writing down our conversations with her, we believe that we had her blessing to share her last days with others.
How do families enter into the world of the dying and support a person who chooses to die at home? Turn Right, Good Moon is a book about that world. It tells the story of a woman who wanted to die at home and of the family who helped her fulfill her wish.
We offer Good Moon’s story in a beautifully designed paperback, with illustrations that capture the depth and mystery of the world of the dying. The book is perfect for those who would appreciate a gift or a keepsake.
