Abstract:

Ten years ago, writer Kate Braestrup and her husband Drew were enjoying the life they shared together. They had four young children, and Drew, a Maine state trooper, would soon begin training to become a minister as well. Then early one morning Drew left for work and everything changed. On the very roads that he protected every day, an oncoming driver lost control, and Kate lost her husband. Stunned and grieving, Kate decided to continue her husband's dream and became a Universalist minister herself, and in that capacity she found a most unusual mission: serving as the chaplain on search and rescue missions in the Maine woods, giving comfort to people whose loved ones are missing, and to the game wardens who sometimes have to deal with awful outcomes. This is the story of Braestrup's journey from grief to faith to happiness, an uplifting account about finding God through helping others.--From publisher description.
