Overview

From the age of three, when a near-death experience brought an angel’s healing touch, Marilou Trask-Curtin has been able to communicate with spirits, primarily in unusually vivid and realistic dreams. Over the years she has interacted with the ghostly forms of several spirits and experienced dream visitations from many others such as her first true love, her beloved grandfather, and even British actor Jeremy Brett, with whom she’d grown close through years of correspondence.

Marilou touchingly recounts her visitations with spirits who have come to offer advice, reassurance, or to let her know they have died or are about to pass on. This includes her companion animals who return to show they’re as full of health and joy as their human counterparts in spirit. The author also tells of dream visits from historical “mentor” figures such as Samuel L. Clemens and Harriet Beecher Stowe, as well as many others.

Dreaming of the Dead will take you on a compelling and beautifully comforting journey—with a glimpse of what awaits us on the other side of life’s doorway.

    This book has healed me! By the time I got to page 10 I felt a burden had been lifted from my heart and soul and I was able to let go of over forty years of grief and anger toward members of my family after the death of my dear mother. Marilou Trask-Curtin's book takes off band aids and heals with warmth and comfort. Vestibules are opened through her loving words of guidance. Thank you so much for this work of art that has forever changed my life. I will now take your words and attempt to help others who wonder, who are griving and who need the comfort and peace you have given. I now know that my loved ones are safe and await reunion with me one day and that the place we will reside in is so beautiful and full of unconditional love. Thank you so much! Please keep writing books like this. I very much and most highly recommend this book to all who are wondering, who are grieving, who feel anger and loss...allow it to heal you on every level..

    An absolutely incredible book!

    For a long time I have searched for a book about what dreams mean that have deceased loved ones in them and finally found it! This book by Marilou Trask-Curtin is absolutely wonderful and answered all my questions about the afterlife. She even has a chapter about departed pets that is so touching and kind. When I was reading this book--that I could not put down--It was as if the author were beside me comforting and consoling me. I did shed a few tears of not sadness but relief during the reading of this book as it is so heartwarming. Each one of the people the author writes about seems to become a personal friend or acquaintance. Just a beautiful, beautiful book and I highly recommend it to everyone who has lost a loved one and is worried about their destination or, even the heavenly destination of a departed pet.
