Published by WestBow Press
Crossing the River Sorrow tells the story of one woman’s plunge from a sheltered childhood in the ‘50’s into the world of medicine, and her personal search for answers to questions about suffering. A single moment at the bedside of a paralyzed girl begins her journey on the River Sorrow, which takes her on a life-long quest to come to terms with the problem of pain.

More than medical case stories or tales of overcoming, Crossing the River Sorrow is a narrative told from the perspective an ordinary wife, mother, and nurse, as she lives her way to peace in the face of some of life’s most troubling questions.

“From the first pages I immediately realized I was in the presence of a gifted writer. In Nurse Richards, you find a gentle yet courageous soul, an artistic master of words, intellectual and guileless with an endearing simplicity of heart. Follow her as she battles unseen enemies with refreshing candor while deftly drawing the reader into her struggles against the stark and dark realities of adversity. This work is the story of a soul coming to a profound understanding of Christ, the gospels and the cross—a place where all should journey. Read. You will be nursed into someone you need to become.”
—Dan’l C. Markham, Director of Partner Relations at Life Without Limbs
Author, with Nick Vujicic, of the Lost Mandate, A Christ Command Revealed
