Well worth reading Feb. 3 2010
By Derek Humphry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The first half of this most readable novel is about life and love, the second part about love and death. An extraordinary story, enjoyable throughout even if -- inevitably -- sad at the end.
Stunning insights into end-of-life choices Sept. 17 2010
By Richard N. Côté - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This profoundly insightful and empathic novel takes the reader deep inside the heart and mind of a woman facing the ultimate challenge: a ghastly, drawn-out death by unstoppable cancer. After all medical avenues of healing and pain control have been exhausted, terminally ill Lacey Wilson wants to die with dignity, at home, surrounded by her loved ones--at the time of her own choosing. Because legal, physician-hastened death is banned in her native Canada, she and her daughter, Jana, take a huge risk: a dangerous, hair-raising trip to Tijuana to obtain the world's most sought-after self-deliverance drug, Nembutal. This emotionally wrenching, action-packed novel is drawn from a long list of real-life experiences related to the author. It frames not only the immensely painful path that many dying people must follow to achieve death with dignity, but demonstrates why legal reform permitting physician-hastened death (already a reality in Oregon, in Washington state, and Montana, as welll as in The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Switzerland) is so desperately needed. Richard N. Côté, author of In Search of Gentle Death: The Fight for Your Right to Die with Dignity (Corinthian Books, 2011).
