Here If You Need Me: A True Story by Kate Braestrup

A memoir by a chaplain to the Maine Warden Service, Kate Braestrup writes of her life as a widow with four young children. She chooses to go to seminary to become a minister, after the tragic death of her state trooper husband.
Here If You Need Me tells the stories of Kate's life serving as chaplain for search and rescue missions in the Maine woods, giving comfort both to the victims families, and to the rescuers. Providing her presence, her comfort, her sense of humor as well as her religious support when requested, she serves as a compassionate and caring presence during times of tragedy and of joy, and reminds us that love and gratitude give meaning to our lives.
