Wilmot, NH

Sondra VanderPloeg [August 2008]
Librarian, Colby-Sawyer College

Here If You Need Me by Kate Braestrup. This memoir recounts Braestrup's life as she coped with the death of her Maine State Trooper husband and decided to pursue his dream of becoming a Unitarian Universalist minister and chaplain to the Maine Game Warden service. The writing is lively and engaging -- including humorous anecdotes about her four young children, introspective episodes about grief, life, and God, and gripping tales of search & rescue missions.
