Our Long Midnight
Reflections of a Physician on Life and Faith During a Global Pandemic
by Dr Jean Chamberlain-Froese

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended our lives, assumptions, and relationships, leaving many of us disoriented. During this time, Dr. Jean Chamberlain-Froese has shared her own journey in regular blog posts and so helped readers navigate theirs. Her reflections as physician, wife, mother, and daughter have given friends and colleagues insight into their own situations, as have her perceptions on managing change, caring for others, aging, sadness, and mental health.

In her posts, compiled here in Our Long Midnight, Dr. Jean also thoughtfully reflects on how her faith life has grounded her during this challenging time. In this book, readers will find inspiration to grow emotionally, socially, and spiritually in difficult circumstances.

“Dr. Jean draws on family, work, relationships and experience to write with compassion, wit and insight. Knowing her centreline, that she is created and loved by God, gives her both steel and stability.”

—Charles Price, Minister at Large,

The Peoples Church, Toronto, Canada

“What you’re holding in your hands is a glimpse of how Jean experienced her life during the pandemic. It is a spiritual diary of sorts; a chronicle of a time we all shared together, yet dramatically apart.”

—Karen Stiller
