Book Description

A must for those with an interest in Death. Working with the Dead provides a readable and true account of the author's encounters with Death, before and after she became an embalmer. Without a doubt this sometimes humorous, yet sensitive and caring approach to death and embalming, will keep the reader gripped on every page. Anecdotes from her personal life and experience make the book engrossing, sad and sometimes funny—but it is not for the faint hearted.

Working with the Dead opens doors to modern embalming and caring for the dead in a way that is easily understood by those wishing to follow the art.

Make yourself comfortable, lock the door, and...prepare to be surprised.
