Book review: Over the Waterfall

Founders Professor of Theology James F. Keenan, S.J., has written a book review in America magazine of Over the Waterfall by fellow moral theologian Marilyn Martone, which details her journey caring and advocating for her brain-injured daughter. “The wisdom in these pages is not, however, the fruit of academic research alone; it is rather born from the reflective and sustained experience of a mother nursing and protecting her daughter with love, unwavering fidelity and hope,” he writes. “Over the Waterfall is unlike anything else Martone has written or I have ever read…filled with rich insights about the gift of a child and spiritual strength, about brain injury, brain development and health care advocacy.”
