Publisher's Summary

The day my father was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, I decided to go and find him a miracle. Do Not Go Gentle is a transporting memoir about Ann Hood's quest to find a cure, if not an outright miracle, that would cure her father's cancer. Her "spiritual Odyssey, with a secret history all its own" would take her from Rhode Island to El Santuario de Chimayo, New Mexico, in search of dirt reputed to contain astonishing healing powers. Along the way, Hood tells the story of her family, their immigration to America, and the author's reconnection with her Italian heritage. Most of all, this touching memoir is a valentine to the man who was, in Hood's own words, "the love of my life".

    Any additional comments?

    Ann hood is a great storyteller and sorry to read that she lost her daughter at 5years old due to a sudden illness.I see she wrote a book 'Comfort' relating to her daughters death. Would love to. Listen to it on audio otherwise I will download it.
