Saying the wrong thing in a delicate situation is a widespread fear. It's difficult for most people to find the right words when confronted with life's most troubling moments: illness or death of a loved one. Many self-help books deal with the aftermath of death, but in Nothing Left Unsaid Carol Orsborn provides counsel to those caring for a dying or seriously ill loved one. Speaking from personal experience, she helps readers find the words for what they really want to say and gives them questions to consider while there's still time. The book is divided into three parts: stories, poems, and prayers; processes and rituals; and questions for conversation.

Review:

Who hasn't searched for the right words when faced with a terminal illness or the impending death of a loved one? It's tempting to become withdrawn in our uncertainty, our fear of saying the wrong thing. The irony is that it's often the unsaid words, questions, and feelings we regret the most when a loved one dies, says Carol Orsborn (The Art of Resilience). Thus, it was Orsborn's hope to create this soothing and provocative collection of stories, poems, and prayers in order to help caregivers and the dying find a common language.

Although Nothing Left Unsaid is a beautifully packaged and highly spiritual handbook, the writing is down to earth and accessible to readers from all religions and walks of life. Through storytelling and brief sections of advice, Orsborn helps readers hear and trust the words that arise from within. Those in the midst of a bedside vigil will especially appreciate the chapter entitled "Ask the Right Questions," which lists 30 poignant questions to start a meaningful dialogue. And don't forget that silence has its own rewards, notes Orsborn, who offers advice on how to sit with a loved one in peaceful, open-hearted stillness. --Gail Hudson
