About the Book

Madeline Chinn Naas was born with a zest for life and for a love of adventure, but at the end of the day it was family that was really the most important part of her life.

In late 1928, her family lost their sheep ranch in Utah while The Great Depression was in full swing. Knowing there were opportunities to survive elsewhere, her Dad and her 6 brothers piled into the car and moved to Idaho Falls, Idaho. Left behind was her Mother and her 4 sisters. Her Mom drove a horse drawn wagon the 500 miles, with the girls, to join the family. Madeline was still in still in her mother’s belly during this journey. She’d be born January 11, 1929.

David W. Brower pays tribute to his mom in this book, tracing her upbringing as well as her inspiring battle with esophageal cancer and leukemia. He also looks back his mom’s family, her husband’s, and her 6 brothers and 5 sisters, specifically her sister Leda. David also shares his vulnerability when talking about his relationships with his wives, his children, his friends, and even his employers.

In sharing his story, he explores his thoughts about prayer and faith, specifically by giving examples of how God “works all things for good.”(Romans 8-28) As a longtime cancer survivor, he also talks about how health issues affect someone’s loved ones.

Join the author as he celebrates the unconditional love between a mom and her son and reveals how he helped his mom pass with grace, love, and dignity.
