The day my father was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, I decided to go and find him a miracle. Do Not Go Gentle is a transporting memoir about Ann Hoodâs quest to find a cure, if not an outright miracle, that would cure her fatherâs cancer. Her âspiritual Odyssey, with a secret history all its ownâ would take her from Rhode Island to El Santuario de Chimayo, New Mexico, in search of dirt reputed to contain astonishing healing powers. Along the way, Hood tells the story of her family, their immigration to America, and the authorâs reconnection with her Italian heritage. Most of all, this touching memoir is a valentine to the man who was, in Hoodâs own words, âthe love of my lifeâ.
