A Gift of Love by Tony Cointreau

A Gift of Love by Tony Cointreau


Does the author’s name sound familiar? Tony Cointreau is from the family that began the Cointreau liquor dynasty.

For those of us who were not born into a wealthy old-money family, it’s easy to think that all of our troubles would be over if only we had a whole lot of money. However, money does not necessarily mean that life is going to be easy.

Tony Cointreau looked like someone who had it all, but life was empty and hard for him despite financial privilege. He dealt with dysfunction in his family and caretakers who caused him harm. As an adult he had a career as an actor, but he set out to find meaning and purpose.

Inspired by a photograph in a magazine, he volunteered to assist with hospice care in the US and abroad. By learning to give himself to serve others as they went through the process of dying, his life became meaningful and purposeful.

A Gift of Love is a practical memoir where Tony Cointreau shares what he has learned through his service. These lessons are a valuable help to friends and family acting as caregivers during end of life transitions.
