Dreams at the Threshold

The author has clearly been deeply inspired by working with patients facing a life-threatening illness. Her experience working in hospitals, clinics, and a hospice for more than 20 years has given her unique insight into dreams at the end of life.

The author claims that at the end of life, dreams often become stronger, more vibrant, and ultimately more hopeful. Some may even offer a profound gift of healing.

This book explores the important role that dreams can play for people nearing the end of life, those providing support, and the loved ones whose lives are touched by the transition. It suggests how to listen with a caring, respectful curiosity to dreams and the dreams of others.

This is an unusual and fascinating book. Healthcare staff working with palliative patients may find it hugely beneficial. It is written with warmth and conviction, and is a heartwarming read.
