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.

About the Author:
Braestrup's novel Onion was published by Viking in 1990, and she has since published a series of magazine articles in Mademoiselle, Ms., City Paper, Hope and Law and Order. She lives in Maine.
From AudioFile:
This true story, which begins with a death, will make you laugh as well as cry and will certainly leave you uplifted. Briefly, when Braestrups husband, Drew, a Maine State Trooper, is killed in a car accident, Braestrup decides to pursue her husbands dream of becoming a Maine Warden Service chaplin. The subsequent story interweaves anecdotes of her Warden Service ministry with reflections on how she and her four young children coped and ultimately triumphed. Braestrup reads in an unexpectedly childlike voice. Her phrasing and pacing are perfect, though, so one soon forgets the almost saccharine voice and concentrates on the beautiful writing and funny, moving story. A.C.S.
