A Life Awakening is a chronicle about the troubled life of a young man named Ethan Elliot, as told by his spirit guide, William. In the first of this series, Whispers from Within, we join Ethan as he feels he finally has found his soul mate in his relationship with Jennifer. Little does Ethan realize that his entire world is about to be turned upside down. Yet, as Ethan's spirit guide, and with minimal intervention, William will guide Ethan to places he never expected to go, and to people he never expected to meet.
Ethan's story begins in New York, when problems developed in his relationship with Jennifer. Heartbroken, Ethan, with the aid of divine intervention, decides to move on, in the hope of finding greener pastures and a new life. What Ethan discovers about himself is an important milestone, as it is to all of us when we awaken to the myriad of possibilities in the lives our souls chose to live.
As Ethan listens to stories of the many people he meets from all walks of life, he slowly begins to re-evaluate his own true purpose in life. With the progression of both time and maturity, Ethan discovers the very essence of life itself, as well as the importance of those whom he considers true friends.
Have you ever experienced a moment in your life when you thought everything was perfect, only to discover that circumstances were about to change abruptly? Whispers from Within will open your eyes to possibilities that at first blush you never would have considered, as you follow Ethan through his journey.
All too often in our lives, we develop a preconceived notion of what the ideal should be in a life partner, a family, a job, or any of the many situations that require decisions on a daily basis. We make those decisions based on a number of factors, often just by watching what our friends and family are doing with their lives. But in life’s grand scheme of things one size doesn't fit all, so we adjust our lives based on our own life experiences.
Whispers from Within, for both Ethan and the reader, celebrates life, with its many paths that lie before us. An entirely new world of options for living one’s life can be found once we drop the pretense of believing we always know what we want out of life. With the aid of your spirit guide, you will gain the ability to quiet the noise of daily life, while going deep within yourself to discover your truest motivations. Like Ethan, eventually you will begin to stop fighting the life your soul chose this time around, and begin to live a life of joy that others could only envy.
In time, Ethan learns an important lesson, that a life well-lived has its own rewards, and neither Ethan, nor the lives he touches, will ever be the same.

I had the chance to read "A Life Awakening" a couple of days ago and found the story has the ability to touch us all, as many have gone through a relationship that never worked out. But it is the interaction of the main characters spirit guide William that adds that extra special dimension to the story. I look forward to reading the second book in the series.
I found this book very enlightening. It took me back to a very personal time in my life and made me reflect on those memories and how much I learned from those experiences and how I feel so blessed to have the memories. I feel the author is hoping by sharing his experiences with others it will help others understand and reflect on those memories of their own life and the lessons learned. I am very excited to read the second book in the series.
For such a new author, this book spoke to me on many levels. The story line and premise hooked me! I can not wait for the next book and to hear more from this author! A must read!
This is a beautiful book about a difficult period in the life of Ethan Elliot. The author lets William, Ethan's spirit guide, tell the story from his own unique perspective. While William calls Ethan a character, I think William is also a character. As he tries to steer Ethan in the right direction, I can almost hear him chuckling at some of Ethan's decisions, and shaking his head and rolling his eyes at others. The reader follows Ethan through many experiences, each one helping him to appreciate all of life, the good and the bad. I won't give away the ending, but I think you will come away, as I did, having the courage to follow the guidance of the whispers that come from deep within your soul. Now I am anxious to read the second in the series, coming out this month, when the author let's Ethan tell his own story in first person, as he reflects back on his past, and also gets a glimpse into his future.
