Halfway Across the River was published by the Wandering Feather Press in 2007. It is a compilation of fascinating stories that detail Dr. Childs’s nearly twenty years of work with the dying. A true story centered around coffeehouse conversations between Dr. Childs and skeptical grieving widower Don Borwhat, Halfway Across the River chronicles the amazing afterlife encounter that turned Don’s world upside down and sent him on a journey of self transformation. The book describes Don’s evolution as he begins to expand his world view under the careful tutelage of Dr. Childs whom he has nicknamed the Godwoman. With humor, uncommon insight, and a gift for storytelling, author Dr. Childs reaches into her years of bedside experiences to help Don find his way in the expansive new world that befalls those who have experienced an afterlife encounter such as his.
