Living Among Headstones is one of the best books by a Northwest Author in recent years. The author, Shannon Applegate, is masterful in the way she weaves together philosophy, psychology, wisdom, emotion and factual information. A broad vision of worldwide funeral practices are woven into stories of life in a small town and its cemetery. This book is a joy to read and its images and ideas stay in our mind and heart after you are done.

This charming book is a warm and insightful discussion of life, death and grieving. From the traditions of funerals to the stones we place on our graves the author brings us along as she learns what it means to own and manage a cemetery where her family and friends are buried along with strangers who do not always share the same values or principals. Once begun this is a book you will not put down until you finish.
