Kitchen Table Wisdom: Stories That Heal by Rachel Naomi Remen
Kitchen Table Wisdom: Stories That Heal

mckmpls, October 21, 2008

Each of Rachel Remen's chapters about a patient's experience is just 2 to 3 pages long; which makes her brilliant reflections on life SO accessible--both for the average reader as well as for the reader facing a similar life-threatening illness. I'm currently reading this book for the second time, and continue to give it frequently as a gift to friends who are facing their own health challenges. I can't recommend this book highly enough!
