About the Author:

Kate Braestrup is the chaplain for the Maine Warden Service and the author of the memoir Here If You Need Me and the novel Onion. She has written for the New York Times Magazine, Boston Globe Sunday Magazine, O, Mademoiselle, More, Ms., and Law and Order and lives in Maine with her husband and children.

From AudioFile:

Listen to Kate Braestrup for any time at all, and her essential kindness reveals itself. As chaplain for the Maine Warden Service, Braestrup is present at rescues and tragedies and has ample opportunity to demonstrate that kindness. She explored that in her earlier book, HERE IF YOU NEED ME, but marriage is the theme here. She recounts stories of fighting with her husband in the early days of their marriage and grieving after his sudden accidental death, marrying a second time, and counseling one of her wardens as his marriage dissolved. Braestrup's voice is intimate and a little smoky, and she's funny and humble, whether she's sharing humorous stories or heartrending ones. Listeners will feel as if they've been invited into her life, and they'll be grateful for it. J.M.D. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine

Book Description Reagan Arthur Books, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In her award-winning memoir Here If You Need Me, Kate Braestrup won the hearts of readers across the country with her deeply moving and deftly humorous stories of faith, hope and family. Now, with her inimitable voice and generous spirit, she turns her attention to the subjects of love and commitment in MARRIAGE AND OTHER ACTS OF CHARITY. As a minister, Kate Braestrup regularly performs weddings. She has also, at 44, been married twice and widowed once, and accordingly has much to say about life after the ceremony. From helping a newlywed couple make amends after their first fight to preparing herself for her second marriage, Braestrup offers her insights and experiences on what it truly means to share your life with someone, from the first kiss to the last straw, for better or for worse. Part memoir, part observation of modern marriage, and part meditation on the roles of God and love in our everyday lives, MARRIAGE AND OTHER ACTS OF CHARITY is a unique and unforgettable look into why, and how, we love each other, and proves yet again why Kate Braestrup s writing is inspirational in the best sense (New York Daily News ).
