Death has existed as long as life itself and yet, it is still considered taboo—a topic seemingly exclusive to medical professionals, clergymen and undertakers. The repression of death from society’s consciousness only makes it more terrifying and gloomy. Jon Underwood, pioneer of the Death Café, suggests that avoiding the subject of dying strips people of the agency over one of the most significant things they will have to eventually face. He started Death Cafés to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” Donna Corso also shares the belief that openness towards the universal and ever-present reality of death is a necessary part of life. In her new book, When the Wind Chimes Chime: Ending the Greatest Fear of All, she examines the significant topic of end of life choices and the fear of dying in the light of the true story of Andraez, a 7-year-old boy who died from bone cancer.

When the Wind Chimes Chime is divided into two parts. The first tells the true story of young Andraez and the lack of choices he had at the end of his life. In the second, Corso leads readers on a journey of self-discovery and shares true stories of people who approached their final days with peace and acceptance. With honesty and tender understanding, the author guides readers through the ups and downs of Andraez’ journey, his parents’ struggles and fears and finally to the heart of her book, which is a complete acceptance of death as a natural part of the life cycle.

She says:

“I have a deep belief in the continuity of life … that ‘death’ is simply a continuation of life in a different way…. a natural part of the life cycle. It is important that we come to terms with our fears about death and dying, and that we begin a dialogue about it rather than being in denial or fear of it.”

Deeply moving and insightful, When the Wind Chimes Chime is a trove of important wisdom and a guide that will ultimately help readers embrace life without the fear of death.
