Kate Braestrup on Motherhood, Hope & Service

kate-braestrup-anchor-and-flaresKate Braestrup’s latest book, Anchor & Flares: A Memoir of Motherhood, Hope & ServiceAnchor & Flares: A Memoir of Motherhood, Hope & Service explores evil, death, and violence; wonder, prayer, and generosity; and love, love, love. Braestrup shares the mixture of fear and pride she felt when her older son enlisted in the Marines. She recounts the tragedy and loss she has witnessed as chaplain to the Maine State Game Wardens. And turning her gaze far from the here and now, she describes “the Danish Miracle,” a nation’s brave action in the face of the Nazi horror.

In a voice both warm and self-deprecating, sometimes droll, sometimes dead serious, Kate Braestrup once again shares with us her wisdom on the quotidian pitfalls and blessings of being human.
