Wise, nurturing, faith-based reflections for caregivers of dying loved ones

At some point in our lives most of us will become caregivers. It is a vocation that can last for a few weeks of recovery time or for a long period of chronic illness or disability, and it will involve us intimately in others' preparation for death.

This collection of poignant reflections by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre is for family members and friends who are doing the life-changing work of accompanying someone on the final stretch of his or her journey. In quiet counterpoint to our hurried lives, A Long Letting Go invites caregivers to slow down for reflection and prayer as they prepare to say good-bye to a beloved friend or family member.

Based on McEntyre's professional and personal experience with the dying, these gentle meditations offer comfort, direction, hope, respite, and consolation to caregivers during a difficult season of their own lives.

"Marilyn McEntyre embodies simple, patient kindness in the pages of this book."
Samuel Wells
vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London
"When we face our own death, or the death of someone dearer to us than life itself, we perceive as-yet formless truths and strive to articulate the fearful truths we apprehend. What we need is a companion who can abide amid our chaos, a sage who can choose the right moment to share a word, and a prophet who can say the thing we shrink from, yet need to hear. Marilyn Chandler McEntyre is all of these things. Going gently with her into the prison of death will set you free."
"Topeka Capital-Journal"
Letting go of a loved one who is nearing the end of life is a difficult proposition, no matter how you slice it. Drawing from her years as a hospice volunteer, as well as from her experience of caring for her own family members, Marilyn Chandler McEntyre delves into this delicate subject with grace and compassion in her new book.
