The Burning Light of Two Stars: Caregiving Insights with Laura Davis

“Caregiving an elderly parent, especially against the backdrop of a difficult shared past, can be a bruising spiritual ordeal. We who must travel this territory don’t need any more sentimental narratives about it. What we do need is the healing medicine of truth-telling, and Laura Davis brilliantly and generously gives it to us. I literally could not put this book down.” —Katy Butler, bestselling author of The Art of Dying Well
