  • PRAISE FOR HERE IF YOU NEED ME:

    "Extraordinarily well written, mingling elements of police procedural and touching love story with trenchant observations about life and death." (Publishers Weekly (starred review)).

  • "Extraordinary....This witty, middle-aged Maine minister has a calm, earthy authority all her own." (Entertainment Weekly).

  • "Here If You Need Me is an honest, endearing account of a life rerouted after devastating loss....Braestrup knows how to tell a good story--the angel is in the details." (Seattle Times).

  • "Can be read as a superbly crafted memoir of love, loss, grief, hope, and the complex subtleties of faith. Or it can be read as the journey of a strong-minded, warmhearted woman through tragedy to grace....Braestrup is remarkable, steady, peaceful, and wise." (Washington Post).
