this is a great book about a very remarkable woman - the founder of the modern hospice movement. She lived to be 90+. Cicely was a convinced Christian. She developed very strong ties with Poland through the patients she nursed and the artist she married (quite late in life.) She led a pretty unorthodox life and people all over the world have been blessed by her commitment and energy in establishing a new vision for care of the dying along with actual buildings and teams of people, backed by research. This is an excellent book, recently brought up to date.

This book is about a truly unsung hero of modern medicine. I suggest that anyone who takes hospices for granted read this to see how this LADY started them.

I bought the book as a gift for my Mother - who was at medical school with Cicely and she is absolutely delighted with it - ergo many "browny points" for me.

Thank you Shirley Du Boulay for taking the time to write this book.
