Touching the Veil (Paperback)
Touching the Veil - End of Life Stories through the Eyes of a Nurse holds answers to unspoken questions of today's world. In fifteen short stories, Cheryl Marita, RN, describes in vivid detail her role as a nurse at the bedside of hospice patients, friends, and family during their last days. Marita shares her own reactions to allow the reader into the dying process, which decades ago was part of everyday life. Join her in her memoir as Marita explores the intimacy of caregiving, of being with the dying. The honesty and intimacy of each story allows the reader to explore their own life, their own inevitable death. Each story brings the reader closer to Marita as she accepts death as part of the human condition, witnesses the compassion of both the dying and their caregivers, and learns how to deal with her own living with dying.
