Description

When Catharine H. Murray travels to a small town on the banks of the Mekong River to work at a refugee camp, she falls in love and marries a local man with whom she has three sons. When their middle son is diagnosed with cancer at age five, their pursuit of a cure takes them from Thailand to Seattle, before they eventually return to Thailand, settling on a remote mountaintop. Full of honesty and grace, Now You See the Sky allows the reader to witness the fathomless loss of a beloved child and learn how tragedy can transform us, expand our vision, and make us more fully alive.

Professional reviews

"In a graceful and unwavering voice, Catharine Murray narrates her memoir of her son, Chan's, brief life. As a young woman, Murray traveled to rural Thailand and became attached to the country and its culture. She settled in Thailand, married a local man, and had three sons. Murray shows us the beauty of living close to the land and raising children in supportive communities. When Chan was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia, the family relocated to Seattle for treatment. After being told that their son's condition was terminal, the family returned to Thailand. Without minimizing her stress and sadness, the poetic manner in which she remembers all the days of Chan's life lingers in the mind of the listener. M.J. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
