Brooke Jennings writes with a realism that demands change. This heart-rending account compels the reader to turn on the light of truth and watch the culprits scatter like the cowards they are. Jennings, through Michael’s horrendous ordeal, gives voice at last to those who have had no one to speak for them.

Living in a Place Called Beautiful; Abuse and Death in Health care is one of the most compelling books that I have read in a long time. Brooke Jennings is a warmhearted humanitarian who demonstrates a true love for her fellow man and gives a strong voice to the rights of anyone disabled.Through her writings, she gives practical advice on how to avoid sub-standard care in nursing homes or other medical institutions. This book is a necessary read before making any decision concerning long-term care for your family members.Through her writings about heaven, you can see how all children are in a safe place after they die. I loved the detailed descriptions Brooke shared in talking with the Angels.

This heartbreaking story tells of Brooke Jennings’ attempts to
care for and protect her handicapped son. Sadly, she was unable to save him from the very people we believe we can depend on in the circumstances she describes.
Living in a Place Called Beautiful; Abuse and Death in Health care, is not only a tribute to a beloved son, but a guide for readers who might be seeking long-term care for family members in nursing homes or other such institutions. This is not an easy book to read emotionally, but it just might provide you with important information you will not find elsewhere.

|This is sad. Our elders should be protected and respected! AMEN!|
|Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner
Always the innocent, the defenseless, who suffer at the hands of medical greed. I would love to read this book. It needs to be placed in every parent's hand, of every one who has no idea what happens behind closed doors.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
