This book is a collection of essays reflecting the lives of those who have suffered grievous loss identified by a hospice in New England. I am appalled that the authors of those essays, supposed professional writers, introjected so much of themselves onto the voices of the actual sufferers. So, instead of reading first person accounts, true accounts of the often searing stories of how their loved ones "went out", we read about writers watching themselves write about hospice clients. Yuck.
