*** “Anne-Marie Keppel’s delightful book The Death of Faefolk offers the reader an enchanting story that masterfully weaves in themes of loss and grief along with factual information about death. This book is an essential tool for educating young adults about death as a key to the cycle of life and presents the information through a comforting and non-threatening tale. I highly recommend it for readers of all ages who want to get in touch with the gift of our mortality.”—Karen Wyatt MD, Author of 7 Lessons for Living from the Dying, Host of End-of-Life University Podcast
*** “Perfectly timed and with a plethora of social justice messages for teens rolled into one captivating fantasy novel.”—Lee Webster, funeral reform advocate and thought leader, National Home Funeral Alliance, National End-of-Life Doula Alliance, Green Burial Council
*** “Anne-Marie Keppel displays an extraordinary honesty and sensitivity in this work in the way that she weaves the ancient Irish tradition of Keening through a modern American tale. While not shying away from the details, young people are taught to maintain the dignity of the bereaved, honour the deceased and accept death as a fact of life. This initiation into death rituals is an important (although often neglected) element in any young person’s education. What a gift!” — Dr. Mary Mc Laughlin, Irish Singer, Teacher
