Mary Brown’s new book, “The Undiscovered Country : Conversations about Death and Dying”, was published in October. In it, she confronts the taboos surrounding death by talking to those who have lost loved ones, and to those who work with the dying and their families. She brings out their unique experiences of and perspectives on death and shows that it is not something to fear, but part of life to be acknowledged and discussed openly.
Mary is a member of Stroud Quaker Meeting. “The Undiscovered Country : Conversations about Death and Dying” can be ordered at bookshops or online for £20, or from Mary herself for £10.
