My Grandfather's Blessings

by Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.

Rated G

Another wonderful recommendation from my friend LJ, who also recommended The Book Thief to me. She has great taste!

My Grandfather's Blessings is a series of essays by Remen, who spent years working as a pediatrician, then later as a counselor to those with chronic and terminal illness. Her experiences, together with the wisdom passed on to her by her Orthodox rabbi grandfather, form essays full of anecdotes and musings that are both inspiring and thought provoking. It is not a difficult read, though I found myself stopping often to ponder what I'd just read.

This book is one to buy. You will want to read it more than once.
