The Choice: Seasons of Loss and Renewal After a Father's Decision to Die
Assisted suicide has become one of the most controversial issues of this decade, now headed for hot debate in American courts. Behind the daily headlines are the very human stories of grief and suffering, stories that cannot be ignored in the wake of a media storm. The account of a Michigan farmer and his family is a story that calls to be heard. With a terminally ill father requesting assisted suicide from Dr. Kevorkian, author Judy Brown found herself in the midst of these issues in a very personal way - dealing with bereavement, inner struggles, and, until now, a difficult secret.
