No one will forget the people who pass through the home of The Undertaker's Wife. What James Herriott did for the country veterinarian, Celia Hastings does for the small-town undertaker. With warmth, humor, and "a splendid voice," this at-first reluctant undertaker's wife chronicles her own journey from farmer's daughter to obtaining an advanced theological degree and becoming an organist in a small-town funeral home-which is also the family home she shares with her husband, a second-generation funeral director.

User Review  - Ginger - Goodreads

Useful practical information on funeral planning. As well as wisdom and musings. Wish I had read this before we had 4 family deaths with in a year. Even though I have over 7 years experience as a Hospice Nurse I found it helpful. Read full review

User Review  - Mom Coulongue - Goodreads

It's title does not indicate a "to do" book; however, that is what I feel it is. Practical, anecdotal, charts and form letters are probably helpful to someone... Wish I had not spent money from our church group on this one. Read full review
