Author Clare Keating provides perspective and wisdom through the recounting of stories as they occurred in the wake of her daughter Alicia’s suffering a catastrophic brain injury, at the age of sixteen. This book is a ‘How To’ manual for adversity survival.

 In a matter of minutes life as you know it can change. A sudden and catastrophic event shatters the life of someone you love dearly. Something that you could never have imagined dealing with has just happened; you are called upon to do the impossible. As if by instinct, we know how to protect and care for the ones we love, particularly our children. Never doubt yourself and don’t ever give up; what you do will make all the difference in the world.

 Each chapter of To Dance in the Rain provides examples of actions as well as messages of hope for anyone facing such a turn of events.  An ER nurse of now 30 years, Clare has a first hand knowledge of the important role health care providers have in the healing process of the critically ill child as well as their family. As a mother she brings insights to encourage parents to always advocate for their children, and to never give up hope.

 To Dance in the Rain is available for $10.95 through the website: or by contacting Mary Grace Keating at Ceitinn Press: Phone 203-206-3280

      Yes, Brenda… there is going to be one at St. Mary’s also. I think it is on May 8th, but that date will be confirmed this week, I believe. : )
