The title says it all. There is a "gentleness" about this book that is inspiring and meditative in its impact. Warmly recommended

Format: Paperback
I bought this book after hearing it featured on woman's hour on Radio 4. It deals with the difficult question of how to get old with dignity and grace in a society which places so little value on it's elderly and their care.

I found it both thought provoking and interesting although possibly somewhat idealistic in places. It does no harm to be reminded from time to time about the things in life which are of real value and there is nothing wrong with having something to aim at providing we don't give ourselves too much of a hard time when we inevitably fall short.

I read this book in Belgium, where I live, and enjoyed it enormously. I decided to order a Kindle version for my sister who lives in the US. The order went through ... BUT she was informed that it is unavailable in the Kindle format in the US -- amazon never informed me about that! I have complained; but beware! Too bad, it's a book worth reading.
