ANCHOR AND FLARES A Memoir of Motherhood, Hope, and Service

by | Read by Kate Braestrup

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

It's always a treat when an author has the talent and experience to narrate her own memoir. Here, Kate Braestrup's clear and expressive performance creates a strong connection with her listeners as she shares her thoughts on parenting, family, and a life in service. Although her ordination as a Unitarian Universalist chaplain informs her outlook, Braestrup is not a proselytizer, and the essays in this audiobook focus primarily on her job with the Maine (game) Warden Service, through which she offers comfort to grieving families, and on coming to terms with her children's transitions into young adulthood, especially her eldest son's enlistment in the Marines. Braestrup's sincere compassion for others, love and respect for her family, and easy sense of humor color her delivery, inviting listeners into her world.
