Publisher's Summary

Kate Braestrup's life was transformed by the loss of her husband; now Kate faces the possibility that she may lose her son.

As a young mother, Kate Braestrup discovered the fierce protectiveness that accompanies parenthood. In the intervening years - through mourning her husband and the joy of remarriage and a blended family - Kate has absorbed the rewards and complications of that spirit.

But when her eldest son joins the marines, Kate is at a crossroads: Can she reconcile her desire to protect her children with her family's legacy of service? Can parents balance the joy of a child's independence with the fear of letting go?

As Kate examines the twinned emotions of faith and fear - inspired by the families she meets as a chaplain and by her son's journey toward purpose and familyhood - she learns that the threats we can't predict will rip us apart and knit us together.

What the Critics Say

"A must-read for any parent who has tried to answer a child's hard questions.... Best of all, this remarkable true story is told with uncommon candor, grace and humor...." (Martha White, Christian Science Monitor)

"It's always a treat when an author has the talent and experience to narrate her own memoir. Here, Kate Braestrup's clear and expressive performance creates a strong connection with her listeners as she shares her thoughts on parenting, family, and a life in service." (AudioFile)
