Abstract:

Marie de Hennezel is a gifted psychologist who works as part of a remarkable team of doctors and nurses in a hospital for the terminally ill in Paris. The men and women who come there, some alone with no one to help, some with their families, do not always know that they are dying. It is Marie de Hennezel's aim first to bring them - and their loved ones - to this knowledge and then to encourage them to live each day remaining to them as fully as possible, to move beyond.

Pain, confusion, or despair toward a perception of their lives as a whole, and to make peace with the approaching end. We watch as she sits with each patient, sometimes encouraging them to release their fears and angers, sometimes providing just a calm, comforting presence, or honest answers to difficult questions. Through her amazing gentleness and the unforgettable people she helps, we learn how precious the final days of a person's life can be and how deeply moving in.

Can be to share these moments with someone. Even more, we come to realize just how much about living there is to learn from those who are dying. In an age when we are taught not to talk about death, this important and profound book lends us the strength to talk about it, gives us hope, and celebrates the amazing courage of the human spirit.
