    This is a truly lovely story about two individuals who live seemingly
    disparate lives but eventually find each other. Is it the will of God?
    Is it orchestrated by Spirit? These and many other questions will dance
    around your head and your heart as you join medium B. Anne Gehman and
    her husband, former Jesuit priest Wayne Knoll, PhD. on their spiritual
    journeys. The book tells each person’s story—altering between Anne and
    Wayne—in a linear fashion from the 1930’s through the early 2000’s.
    Their lives are so different and yet so similar, it is fascinating to
    watch them develop and unfold side by side in this book. As the book
    progressed, I could not imagine what would bring these two extraordinary
    people together. Although my desire to know how Anne and Wayne met and
    fell in love was an impetus to keep me reading, it was not the only one.
    It is the determination and faith of each of these characters that kept
    me invested in their stories and their growth. Initially, I was most
    intrigued by Anne’s special gifts as a medium, but I became equally
    fascinated with Wayne’s journey into the priesthood. Both Anne and Wayne
    are so confident and passionate about their paths and purposes, it is
    inspiring. A treat at the end of the book is an interview the author
    did with Wayne and Anne. It is honest and thoughtful and really gives
    you a sense of what they mean to one another and how their mutual
    respect for the others faith only brings them closer—to each other, to
    God, and to Spirit. My favorite quote from the interview comes from
    Wayne when discussing an irreconcilable intellectual difference between
    Anne and him: “…If we cannot—not just Anne and me, but humankind—if we
    cannot maintain mutual respect when there are intellectual differences,
    then all civilization is tribal….Then the only people that matter are
    those in our tribe. And this is why we have such problems in the world
    today. We don’t all have to be Spiritualists or Catholics, but we do
    need mutual respect, while maintaining the integrity of one’s personal
    identity.” Amen.
