I just finished this memoir by Kate Braestrup and read it in one sitting and enjoyed it very much. I was drawn to the book because it is a Maine story written by a Maine author.
Here is an excerpt of a review from Booklist
"Braestrup was an accidental chaplain. Her husband, Drew, a Maine state trooper, died in a car accident at a time when he was considering a second career as an ordained minister. After her shock subsided, Braestrup decided to follow in his footsteps and became a chaplain for the Maine Warden Service, which sets up search-and-rescue missions throughout the state. A poignant, funny book by a sympathetic, likable, immensely appealing figure."
This book is also available in Large Print at the library.
