Dessert First

Preparing for Death While Savoring Life

2019 INDIES Winner
Bronze, Grief/Grieving (Adult Nonfiction)

Dana Trent accompanied more than 200 people and their families in the year she served as a chaplain in a hospital "death ward.” "Dessert First" gathers those stories and lessons, as well as others learned from the year she spent with her own dying mom, to illuminate the complexity of death and grief, and how we all might better prepare for a “good death.” Final chapters include religious, spiritual, practical, and legal resources for the reader and their loved ones.
