Author and columnist Mark LaFlamme said this about Reiki Stories: My Hot Hands. “I think maybe only a nurse can take you from hilarity to horror to humility and then back again in the span of two heartbeats. Kendall does it over and over. I read her stuff and find myself smiling, wincing, laughing aloud, then clearing my throat because there seems to be something caught in it.

Kendall's writing has a distinct note of seen-it-all, heard-it-all wisdom, but it's tempered by great humility, gratitude and – it must be said – charm. She weaves masterfully from one tale to the next, from the piquant to the sorrowful, and the further she goes, the more you want, until you're like a wide-eyed child sitting on the knee of a beloved elder. Kendall's stories inform and entertain. You will respect what the author can do with her words and with her hands.

If she's as good a nurse as she is a writer – and I suspect that's so – there is undoubtedly a little less suffering in the world.”

Kendall's stories are heartwarming, heartbreaking, and hopeful. She will sometimes shift your equilibrium, and sometimes validate what you've been thinking all along. Ready to curl up with a good book? This is it.
