I got the book last week and read it immediately. I have already recommended it to several friends who are in the dying process. I also have recommended it to family members dealing with grief and difficult life situations. It is a hopeful book and gave me a new appreciation for the mystery of living and dying. Thanks to Camille Claibourne for this valuable book.

For Camille to write the book about real life experiences with patients was very motizating. The prayers in the back of the book were very fulfilling and can be applied for every day reflection. Camille has the wonderful ability to write in a very personal and down to earth style. Looking forward to more writing by Camille Claibourne.

You can easily read this book in one sitting. You will be touched by the simplicity in the lives of the patients that are dying and their incredible journey with faith as they approach death. The book will focus on what matters most at the end of one's life. It is like reading your own diary if you ever experienced the presence of God when watching a loved one die.

This book does a fantastic job of creating the essence of the moment of those final days. It allows others to peer through the keyhole of the door of what being in the presence of love is like in the final moments.

Amazing insights about the dying process shared by the author. Couldn't put the book down. I will read it again and again as life's journey requires me to be reminded about the dying process.

This book is beautiful to look at and hold and when seeking comfort in a book, that is a valued quality. I also admire the beauty in the uncomplicated and respectful way in which Camille introduces us to those who are "Dying in God's Hands". This book brought me along on her "interviews" giving faith new faces for me to identify with and allowing me to feel my own experiences of loss and grief. A wonderful book to give comfort and hope to all of us; caregiver, one who is dying or to those who grieve the death of someone dear. Great gift book to someone in need of hope and faith, even yourself.

Sure we all know we're going to die. But, how do we do it? This book is a "how to" guide written by a compassionate and spiritual professional caregiver. It takes away much of the mystery and fear and provides comfort and hope. I wish I had this knowledge before walking to death's door with my husband and parents. I will give this book to my friends and family who are facing death or supporting a loved one through our last big experience on earth.
