Just not my sort of book. Know it's much loved by many. Quit after a few chapters. ( )

I opened this book hoping to receive some insights into grief and mourning. I did receive those, but the book is not overwhelmingly about the author's mourning or grief. It's about her renewal and contains some wonderful stories of deep humanity. Very readable and charming. ( )

Kate Braestrup tells her story of how she became a minister serving as chaplain for search-and-rescue missions in the Maine woods. She has humor and faith as she tells of failed and successful efforts and the men and women who serve. She speaks of faith and love, humor and frustration. She has a nice clear voice and speaks in straightforward prose. ( )

An interesting memoir of faith by a woman who is the chaplain of the Main Game Warden Service. I only read this because it was a book club selection. Other members of the club found a deeper connection and enjoyed the book far more than I did. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316066303, Hardcover)

Ten years ago, Kate Braestrup and her husband Drew were enjoying the life they shared together. They had four young children, and Drew, a Maine state trooper, would soon begin training to become a minister as well. Then early one morning Drew left for work and everything changed. On the very roads that he protected every day, an oncoming driver lost control, and Kate lost her husband.


Stunned and grieving, Kate decided to continue her husband's dream and became a minister herself. And in that capacity she found a most unusual mission: serving as the minister on search and rescue missions in the Maine woods, giving comfort to people whose loved ones are missing, and to the wardens who sometimes have to deal with awful outcomes. Whether she is with the parents of a 6-year-old girl who had wandered into the woods, with wardens as they search for a snowmobile rider trapped under the ice, or assisting a man whose sister left an infant seat and a suicide note in her car by the side of the road, Braestrup provides solace, understanding, and spiritual guidance when it's needed most.


HERE IF YOU NEED ME is the story of Kate Braestrup's remarkable journey from grief to faith to happiness. It is dramatic, funny, deeply moving, and simply unforgettable, an uplifting account about finding God through helping others, and the tale of the small miracles that occur every day when life and love are restored.
