Praise for "The Last Pilgrimage"
"This is a beautiful book with an appropriate title, as sorrow over her mother's cancer became the author's conduit for her search for God. Linda Daly has mined the extraordinary depths of the love a daughter feels for her mother, and the sadness she feels at her passage from this world. A wonderful testament to the power of love." --Marianne Williamson
"I am so glad Linda chose to write this story for two reasons. One, I think Linda is a very good writer --she writes with humor, sensitivity, insight, and depth. Two, because I believe that Linda's account of Nancy Daly's final days after her courageous battle with pancreatic cancer should be read. It is a story of love and strength; the importance of family and friends, and mostly about a woman who refused to see the bottle as half empty even when it was down to its last ounces." --Carole Bayer Sager
""The Last Pilgrimage" presents the age-old archetype of a child facing a parent's death but with a unique voice and vision, namely the ability to mix the material with the metaphysical. I can't think of a more contemporary mother/daughter tale -- filled with questions of life and death, love and money, identity and family -- or a more qualified author/daughter to write it." --Annie Jacobsen, bestselling author of "Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base. "
"There are so many elements to this journey -- both geographical and metaphorical -- it's like a scavenger hunt for salvation. But at the core, this is a story about a family coming together instead of falling apart when the glue that held them together is about to die. It's moving, compelling and, time and time again, downright funny." --Nancie Clare, former editor of the "Los Angeles Times Magazine"
"As Linda grew ever more determined to shining a light on the plight of others around the world, her mother, Nancy Daly, became more engaged in Linda's journey with Inte

Praise for "The Last Pilgrimage"
"Philanthropist and environmental activist Daly writes about her spiritual search as she shared her mother's courageous four-year battle with the ravages of pancreatic cancer... a convert to Judaism with a profound connection to nature, [she] writes movingly of her spiritual journey as she faced the need to establish an independent identity. A daughter's tender tribute to a remarkable mother." --"Kirkus"

Praise for "The Last Pilgrimage"
"This book is two stories, a child's and a dying parent's, and each of us has both of those stories in us too, whether we tell them in a book for the world to read or tell them for ourselves alone, around the family table, as our turn comes to care for the dying and then, eventually, to be among them." --Patt Morrison, "The Los Angeles Times"
""The Last Pilgrimage" is a gorgeous love story and spiritual travelogue wrapped in a wonderfully written, funny, and fantastic memoir. It is the best kind of biography; like life, reality bites and blossoms on every page. A vivid and loving portrait of Nancy Daly, painted by her daughter's unflinching, touching, and warmly humorous reflections." --Jamie Lee Curtis

"As Linda grew ever more determined to shining a light on the plight of others around the world, her mother, Nancy Daly, became more engaged in Linda's journey with International Medical Corps' efforts; their relationship deepened through this shared journey. Linda's life-altering experiences in these difficult environments have translated into extraordinary action. Her influence among thought leaders and her powerful writing has proved immensely valuable to us as we carry out our lifesaving work delivering health care and training in nearly thirty countries." --Nancy A. Aossey, President & CEO, International Medical Corps
"Daly offers a beautifully written and compelling account of a struggle with illness that showed all the fault lines in the mother-daughter relationship as they embarked on a roller coaster of treatments, setbacks, minor miracles, and the final descent." --"Booklist"
