Halfway Across the River

Halfway Across the River, published by the Wandering Feather Press, 2007, is a compilation of fascinating stories that detail Dr. Childs’s nearly twenty years of work with the dying. Centered around coffeehouse conversations between Dr. Childs and skeptical grieving widower Don Borwhat, Halfway Across the River chronicles the life changing communication Don received from his deceased wife shortly after her death. This afterlife encounter turned Don’s world upside down and sent him on a journey of self transformation. The book describes Don’s evolution  as he begins to expand his world view under the careful tutelage of Dr. Childs whom he has nicknamed  the Godwoman. With humor, uncommon insight, and a gift for storytelling, author Dr. Childs reaches into her years of bedside experiences to help Don find his way in the  expansive new world that befalls those who have experienced an afterlife encounter such as his.
