About the Book
Aidyn Kelley is talented, ambitious, and ready for a more serious assignment than the fluff pieces she’s been getting as a cub reporter for the Kansas City Star. In her eagerness, she pushes too hard, earning herself the menial task of writing an obituary for an unremarkable woman who’s just entered hospice care.
But there’s more to Clara Kip than meets the eye. The spirited septuagenarian may be dying, but she’s not quite ready to cash it in yet. Never one to shy away from an assignment herself, she can see that God brought the young reporter into her life for a reason. And if it’s a story Aidyn Kelley wants, that’s just what Mrs. Kip will give her–but she’s going to have to work for it.
Debut author Sara Brunsvold delights with this emotional multigenerational story that shows that the very best life is made up of thousands of little deaths to self. You’ll want to be just like Mrs. Kip when you grow up!
In My Opinion
This debut from Sara Brunsvold is a beautiful story about how far reaching a life lived well can be. The Extraordinary Deaths of Mrs. Kip will touch your heart and challenge you in your every-day interactions with others.
As Clara Kip stares at the end of her life in hospice care, a cub reporter is tasked with writing her obituary. What Aidyn Kelly doesn’t expect is a life story that helped shape Kansas City. One that still ripples through the community years after Mrs. Kip helped refugees find homes in the United States. A story that must be told—if for nothing more than for Aidyn’s benefit.
One of my favorite parts of this book is how Clara takes Aidyn under her wing, prays for her, and mentors her, showing Aidyn the way to impact lives for God’s kingdom. Even when it was painful, even through her grief and setbacks, Clara Kip continued to love. We need a world with more Mrs. Kips.
