Overview

A mother's worst nightmare is to lose a child. In 1996, Judy Corcoran's son was killed in a work-related accident. What followed the tragedy was five years of her trying to cope, understand, and process why her oldest son was taken from her.

As a registered nurse, Judy was accustomed to caring for the elderly and offering solace to the loved ones they left behind at the end of their lives. Although a grieving process occurred, most were comforted by the fact that a long, full life had been lived. Witnessing death was something she experienced throughout her career yet she had always believed in that "somewhere else" where we went after life on Earth ended.

But her son's passing caused her to lose faith in that belief. She was terrified and questioned life after death. She lost all hope until something happened that caused a magnificent and resilient spiritual awakening: Her son brought her answers. She experienced "contact" from her son and she received the answers she needed in order to believe again, not from his death, but from him.

This moving journal is a beautiful narration of a mother's experience that will give comfort to anyone who has lost a loved one. Life can begin again and the ones we love live on forever.

Author Judy Corcoran is a registered nurse at a rehabilitation facility. She has written an anthology of poetry and is currently writing a fiction novel. She lives in Australia.

It was the title of the book that intrigued me and first caught my eye but within the first few pages my attention and heart were also captured. Its not very often that a book like this is written, one that is so honest and true. There were times when reading it i would cry and others when i would smile. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about real life and the hardships it sometime throws at us.

This is a book I got that I could not put down. Every page and every word kept me wanting to know more. I think this author did a wonderful job telling us the story of her beloved young son. A sad but true story with alot of emotion and heartfelt tribute to the one she loved and many others she wrote of. This book is a must read for all who have lost one so dear to them. It is also a comforting piece with many aspects of the after death messages given to us that we connect with. Truly a commendable story. A fine display of love and emotion the whole book through.
