A critical care and emergency flight nurse, Jennifer Culkin is no stranger to death and its dramas, and her memoir plunges the reader into both. Aboard the Agusta A109A helicopter, we see through her eyes as she is entrusted with the life of a teenager wrenched from the wreckage of a head-on collision. In the intensive-care nursery, we take each tenuous breath with an eleven-ounce preemie she struggles to ventilate. Tempering her profound insights about mortality with humor, Culkin explores the rich borderland that lies between person and profession as she cares for her dying mother, widowed father, and, eventually, as she adjusts to life with multiple sclerosis, herself.
