Shirley MacLaine
“He helps a lot of people. He really is a healer. I think he’s basically on this earth right now at this time and place to heal. He is the real thing. I can’t tell you how many times he’s been right with me.”
New Age Retailer
“An amazing book that may bring the comfort necessary to any grieving individual, especially a Parent, to lessen their pain, to comprehend that their now-dead loved one is really still with them, guiding them, loving them and sending them extra support from the Other Side.”

    Can't put this down

    Although this book has been written primarily for parents who have lost a child, I found it extremely comforting even though I have lost my sister. I am a really big fan of Van Praagh's writing style in his previous books and this book is no exception. He comes accross as genuine, empathetic and very convincing and provides great comfort to anyone who has lost a loved one. I must admit that prior to reading his works, I was a non believer, in fact I still have abit of skepticism at times but I find when I reread Van Praagh's books it's not difficult to believe that there has to be a spiritual side to our existance.I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who is suffering the loss of a loved one.

    Build you up and then it lets you down

    In the beginning of this book I could not bring it down. Then toward the middle of the book it was a big let down. I believe in many thing, but I believe the author ran out of things to say to keep me interested. I have lost a child now, she left 2 years ago. I have been looking for answers ever since, sorry you will not find them here.

    Love This Book

    This book brings together much of the information from James Van Praagh's other books but it still provides more insight about loved ones that have passed on. I have went from a skeptic to a believer and this books just confirms what I believe.
