Brookes Journey of Heart is the story of a daughter who lives each day with the disabilities delivered with her at birth and the mother who gave birth to her. Beverly Charles asked her daughter, Brooke Klemme, if she would like to write her story of living with Spina Bifida. Brooke responded, "Yes! There are two sides to every story." Brooke and Beverly show us both sides of their story in the context of faith, family, and friends. In 1971, more than 6000 American children were born with Spina Bifida, but like most people, Beverly Charles knew nothing about this condition until she gave birth to her third and last child. In this touching memoir co-authored by Charles and her daughter Brooke Klemme, we learn first-hand not only what it means, but what it feels like - to raise a disabled child, to watch her suffer and triumph, and to be that child, who now as an adult, tells her side of the story. Most parents will never have to answer this question - should your new baby live? For Brooke's mother, there was only one answer, an answer that would involve multiple surgical procedures, interminable hospital stays, and an army of doctors and therapists - an answer that would change her and her family forever. This book is a spiritual memoir and a medical one. The authors make connections with Eastern and Western religious practices that have seen them through difficult and joyous times for over four decades. Their story transcends the personal to offer hope and help to other parents who have faced the same hard question and who, like Beverly and Brooke, answer "YES." As one reader said, I loved it. I laughed, cried, got mad, got sad, and now feel like a part of your family.

It's mad that ye're here with me. In Cobh. I always felt like I was born on the brink of the world. That I was near death, always. And here I am! Hereafter. This place of slower motion. But whipping energy. Back Home. A woman lies dead in her grave in the Tumbledown cemetery, Cobh, County Cork. It's a recent relocation; only two weeks before she was living in a flat near Croke Park in Dublin, beneath two East European prostitutes who she had begun to be friendly with. From her last resting place, she tells the story of her life: her happy childhood and the mother who loved Cleopatra; being struck by lightning and then missing school for a year; her night shifts in hotels washing and mending laundry; up to her ultimate and untimely demise in a north Dublin flat; all via a series of unlikely encounters and heartbreaking betrayals. Written in Pat Kinevane's signature style, Underneath is a blackly comic, rich and vivid tale of a life lived in secret, a testament to the people who live on the fringes, under the nose of everyday life. Underneath was published to coincide with the play's first production by Fishamble theatre company in December 2014.
