Mothmilk and Moondust is an unusual book. It is a collection of poems, stories and reflections on lives lived in grace to the end, and in writing so tenderly and sensitively about the death of her mother, Karen gives us permission to attend to our own grief in an intense but comforting and healing way. Gentle humour, loving kindness and poignant commentary on the foibles of humanity give this work a special place. Mothmilk and Moondust is a bowl of cherries for the times when we need a sweet reminder and witness to the grace of God in our lives. Sales of Mothmilk and Moondust will benefit Strathcarron Hospice, Stirlingshire. Karen McCuaig Macdonald was born in September 1942, right in the middle of the war.
