Cradled All the While is a beautifully crafted memoir in which the author recounts the story of her mother's death from cancer. In the midst of a career and child-rearing, Corse becomes her mother's primary caregiver, but her story is a spiritual journey that will nurture the faith of people of many religious backgrounds. The themes encountered throughout the book parallel the issues dealt with in practical grieving resources. Here, however, they are played out in the lives of a real family.

    A Psychologist's view of the book & reader's guide

    ¿My mother¿s final gift to me was given when she was beyond believing that she had anything left to offer anyone, and was received when I was long past expecting anything from her.¿ Thus ends the prologue to the author¿s moving personal account of her mother¿s cancer experience, and the way in which the illness transformed their relationship over time. In this memoir, Dr. Corse intertwines flashbacks from her own life with the unfolding story of her mother¿s illness, illuminating the complex web of family relationships within which she struggles to understand and cope with her mother¿s dying. Memoirs about personal loss run the risk of leaving the reader feeling depleted or emotionally manipulated. Dr. Corse¿s book does neither. Her book is about the redemptive and transformative power of caring for a dying parent, leaving the reader feeling hopeful and inspired. This book is for anyone with a disappointing relationship with a parent who has died or is dying, and for everyone who seeks grace and healing in their relationships throughout life. The reader¿s guide, available free from the author, offers a vehicle for reflecting on and discussing the book¿s themes related to dying, caring, and healing. The guide contains thought-provoking questions suitable for book clubs and for students in psychology, psychiatry, pastoral counseling, social work, nursing, and religion.

    An excellent read

    After reading this book, I felt better about death... that it's a natural part of living. Ms. Corse has a writing style that just flows. Very readable..

    I highly recommend this book. Ms. Corse has the unique gift of capturing her audience and holding their attention. Do not think that this book is merely about a mother's death; it is so much more than that and beneficial to anyone regardless of their age or gender. This memoir gives an honest insight to the complexities of the mother-daughter relationship.
