Full Synopsis
When Catharine H. Murray travels to a small town on the banks of the Mekong River to work at a refugee camp, she falls in love and marries a local man with whom she has three sons. When their middle son is diagnosed with cancer at age five, their pursuit of a cure takes them from Thailand to Seattle, before they eventually return to Thailand, settling on a remote mountaintop. Full of honesty and grace, Now You See the Sky allows the reader to witness the fathomless loss of a beloved child and learn how tragedy can transform us, expand our vision, and make us more fully alive.

" . . . a graceful and unwavering voice." -AudioFile

"As much a eulogy to Chan as a testament to the joy of life, the book is a heartwarming tale of dealing with lifealtering loss . . . A tender, love-filled story of how one woman dealt with the loss of a young child." -Kirkus

"[Now You See the Sky] is a rare memoir in that it gives the impression that time can be stopped. There are images in here, gestures of love, and its hard conversations, that a reader will remember forever." -Rick Bass, author of For a Little While
