Reviewed by Jackie O'Neal for Readers' Favorite "Loving Conor: A Clairvoyant’s Memoir on Loving, Bonding, and Healing" by Tami Urbanek begins dramatically by relating the trials and tribulations of an early marriage plagued by domestic abuse, alcoholism and the struggle to self-actualize. I felt Urbanek executed emotional truth on the written page as she recounts a nearly untenable situation - raising a child as a single mother with limited resources. I'm sure many readers who have traveled a similar road will be affected emotionally by Urbanek's vivid revelations about how she survived multiple break-ups and false starts. I found it remarkable how Urbanek writes with compassion about having personally repeated similar patterns in her choice of relationships and lifestyle. What she describes with insight is redolent of what Freud termed obsession with repetition. But her courage to overcome is evident throughout the book. I believe the book will serve as an inspiration to readers seeking to find a way out of crisis. It seems to me Urbanek's strength as a writer is her masterful ability to be able to weave several powerful themes into the narrative - the triumph over adversity, and the discovery of one's full human potential. I thought the deeply spiritual element of the book is fascinating. Urbanek conveys to the reader the development of her psychic ability. This was the beginning of finding her life's work in pursuing the practice of Life Energy Flow Tai Yi. As the daughter of a working medium, she was well-versed and rooted in psychic phenomena. Seekers of truth will appreciate the knowledge shared.

DOUBLE REVIEW BY MYSELF & MY MUM INITIAL THOUGHTS  I have to admit my initial thoughts when I first started reading this book was how my early- life/marriage mirrors what Tami went through, with the exception that my then husband was not a drinker, his temper and actions were done stone cold sober. I even suffered an miscarriage early on in my marriage that was a boy and went on to have a girl later into the marriage. MY REVIEW I received a free E-Copy of this book directly from Tami Urbanek, the author in exchange for my honest review. The cover features a little boy whom I'd say is who the book is named after Conor. I really like the cover, it is such a cute picture of Conor. So would the cover make me pick up the book from a book store shelf? Yes,  definitely. The book covers Tami's early, young marriage to Nyle. After suffering a miscarriage, Tami goes on to having a baby girl whom she calls Bethany. Tami's marriage with Nyle sounds awful, the fact she is literally treading on egg shells around him not knowing what sort of mood he will be in. Then there's the money he takes that should be for food or rent. It make take Tami a little while but she finally gets out of the relationship, at least on her own she knows when she puts money away for the rent that it will still be there when she needs it to pay the rent. Unfortunately Tami like many women in her situation seems to attract the "wrong type of guy" but each time she does she finally realises and gets out of the relationship. Tami learns to be self reliant and goes on to get a great job. None of it comes easy, it is really hard work to get where she has to be and to learn new skills to enable her to obtain a better paying job. Tami always tries to do the best by her young daughter Bethany. when Tami settles down with her final partner and all seems like it will finally settle down, her daughter starts having behaviour issues. As Tami's parents are mediums too they consult their guardian Jonah for advice how to cope with Bethany. Bethany seems intent on reliving her mothers early life, getting into bad relationships, and becoming pregnant at a young age. Then her baby's soul is troubled and Tami, her husband and Bethany and the extended family have another challenge how to "reach" the boy and teach him he will be loved and wanted.  I don't want to go into details as they would be spoilers and you should really read this book. It is a rollercoaster tale of a real life women's "life story". There's also a chapter at the end by Bethany which tells us what she has come to realise in life etc. So did I enjoy the book? Yes, it really was a "different to my usual" read. It was kind of eery how my life reflected Tami's to a point. I also got married in my early twenties, my parents weren't so keen on my partner but they did come around. Then I too became pregnant but miscarried my baby son. Then my marriage went on to become violent. The difference was my husband didn't drink he just had awful moods and an horrendous temper. It's strange how our lives can mirror others.Would I read more by Tami  Urbanek? Perhaps if she did a book about her medium work with clients and their stories I think I would. Would I read other books of this type? Yes I actually have one or two in my to read and review list. Would I recommend the book? Yes I have recommended it to my mum and her review is below.Once again Sandra received an e-copy of this book directly from the author and I did feel interested in it from the blurb she read out to me. Then when Sandra read it she said she had enjoyed it and I decided to give it a go. I did like the book but not as much as Sandra did. If felt the pace slowed down a little too much for me in certain parts. I also found the talking to the soul of the baby that her daughter Bethany was carrying harder to read and take in and understand. I can empathise with the violence in the marriage as I experienced this also. I can also understand the feelings of knowing that your daughter is making a mistake in the guy she is choosing to spend her life with.  I do find mediums and the stories of their lives interesting, I've read quite a few, for example Sally Morgan and Colin Fry and loved those but I don't know how to explain it I just didn't fully "click" with this book. I think maybe I had thought the book would have had more of Tami's meduimship work with her clients in too. So overall what did I think? It was a good read, and even though I didn't think it amazing I still enjoyed it enough that I gave it 5/5 on Goodreads.
