This book recounts a chaplain’s unintended sojourn into the business-side of death. Therefore, the narrative describes the definitive correlation between the excessive production of revenue for financial stakeholders in many for-profit corporations and the corresponding harm inflicted on hospice patients.

Praise for Maryclaire’s writing . . .

“Maryclaire has mastered the art of writing: in a form that describes deep feeling and grace and leads readers to a (magical) place. The essay describes a powerful time in every child’s life when they must say goodbye to their parents. . . (describing) the death of a mother eloquently and profoundly by a grieving daughter. Death is not usually described like this – in this much detail and beauty. The lyrical writing flows with the pace of a song – not one word is out of place.” – Laurie Scheer
