In his twenty-three-year career as a volunteer in hospice care, Bruce Allen often found that a well told story could entertain and soothe his elderly patients. He also found that many of them wanted to give back, to tell their own tales. With a clear and gentle delivery and a wonderfully sharp ear for everyday detail, Allen pays homage to his friends' lives and neatly folds their stories into his own larger world of Button End tales. In this collection of stories of "courage, dignity and love," Allen features Henry, who survived the last days of WWII in a German POW camp, and Jeanette, a professional singer who found her voice one last time. These kindhearted stories may bring a tear to the eye. B.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2014]
