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.
For those familiar with the world of the dying, Good Moon’s story is a refreshing perspective on the joys, sorrows and challenges of supporting a loved one who has chosen to die on her own terms.
For those unfamiliar with that world, Turn Right, Good Moon is a compelling invitation. It asks us to welcome Death into our homes and our families, to accept its strange and powerful blessings, and to renew our understanding of what it means to live.
