The Moon To Play With: A Daughter's Journey through Love, Loss, and the Power of Presence

 
9781452523873: The Moon To Play With: A Daughter's Journey through Love, Loss, and the Power of Presence

This inspirational memoir travels one woman's road to generational adulthood as she resists, then embraces, her parents' aging and eventual deaths. Wendy Karasin's descriptive passages offer readers the opportunity to experience the normalcy and enormity of what happens in her life. As Wendy is pushed into a caregiving role that grows exponentially, she must surrender to an inability to alter her parents' fate. Her pain morphs from engagement to acceptance, and ultimately compassion. The experiences that unravel her also transform her. With seventy-nine million baby boomers and forty million seniors, the imperative requirement for conscious end-of-life conversation has arrived.

The Moon To Play With is more than the memoir of the author's loss of both parents. Beautifully written, Wendy Karasin shares the sensitive transition to true adulthood-as defined by the moment when one is no longer anyone's child. Wendy gracefully takes us on her journey with the understanding that this path is one we all walk at some point. She writes with emotional transparency, and without the triteness that can accompany a subject so sensitive. Wendy Karasin's story is that of a universal experience, told with grace and soul."

- Mimi Krumholz, Waiting for the Karma Truck

About the Author:

Wendy Karasin is a divorced baby boomer in the process of losing both her parents and in danger of losing parts of herself as well. Sandwiched between her four young-adult children and the growing needs of her aging parents, she must surrender to a power greater than her own. As this daughter's reality shifts from denial to presence, a personal, pensive, and thought-provoking journey ensues. The Moon To Play With illuminates the beauty and complexity of parental love, acceptance, loss, and renewal.

Wendy Karasin holds a graduate degree from New York University. In addition to having raised four children, she has worked in educational publishing, owned and operated a diet center, and provided professional services as a wellness coach. She presently lives on Long Island, New York.
