"Naked Hope" is an honest look at what a nurse learns by caring for those who have been stripped of all the external layers of their identity. "Naked Hope" strips us all bare: asking us to question who we are and what we have to offer without our clothes, cars, jobs, or credit cards. Digging deeper than just cute hospital anecdotes, we are confronted with the challenge of finding hope in the midst of suffering and death. Accosted with brokenness and disease on a daily basis as a nurse, Abby is always busy, often tired, sometimes despairing but ultimately hopeful. Discover the beauty that comes from daring to face your own vulnerability and nakedness.

About the Author:

Abby Jackson is a charge nurse, serving the elderly and poor at the same inner-city hospital in which her parents fell in love and she was born. When she is not writing or working at the hospital, she and her husband enjoy good coffee, new recipes, long road trips, and exploring the coast of Lake Michigan. They currently live in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Review:

Abby has put her passion for nursing and her patients into Naked Hope. Her dedication, her sincerity, her compassion and her love of our profession come through beautifully. A fascinating, insightful, sincere, look from the inside: a must read for anyone thinking about becoming a nurse, and for those who wonder what nursing is really like. It provides a window into to the day-to-day transition of a new graduate nurse into one who demonstrates the best of our profession. --Elizabeth A. Murphy, BScN, MSBA, RN, NEA-BC, FACHE Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer Trinity Health - Saint Mary's Health Care
