This true story, which begins with a death, will make you laugh as well as cry and will certainly leave you uplifted. Briefly, when Braestrup’s husband, Drew, a Maine State Trooper, is killed in a car accident, Braestrup decides to pursue her husband’s dream of becoming a Maine Warden Service chaplain. The subsequent story interweaves anecdotes of her Warden Service ministry with reflections on how she and her four young children coped and ultimately triumphed. Braestrup reads in an unexpectedly childlike voice. Her phrasing and pacing are perfect, though, so one soon forgets the almost saccharine voice and concentrates on the beautiful writing and funny, moving story.
