When I first picked up this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had seen the show on NBC called 'Medium' and liked it just fine. I had even watched an interview with Allison DuBois on Oprah, and enjoyed it, but I was not ready to be blown away like I was. I didn't put it down, not once, after I picked it up. There were several times, that I read through tears, sniffling along with the writer's voice in my head. Mrs. DuBois told many of her experiences in the hopes that we could all learn from them, many of which I could relate to. The Butterfly theme was woven in nicely, accentuated with some science backup from her husband. While reading the book, I thought of great people, like Depak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, and John Edwards, and how I will now put Mrs. DuBois in that group. The book touched my heart, asked me to look inside myself, and helped me to better understand my life and the effects that I have on my children's future. Mrs. DuBois has written a wonderful book that is full of life's ups and down, to which many are detailed and full of raw emotion. I found myself smiling and laughing, crying, and contemplating from the first page to the last. Despite whether a person believes in the afterlife, ghosts, earthbound spirits, or mediums, this book encompasses so much more and will leave you not only feeling spiritually refreshed, but also a better person just for reading it. I had entertained the idea of writing Mrs. DuBois a note to let her know how her words touched my soul, but figured she probably wouldn't ever see it. Instead, I have decided to write this review, in hopes that others will be touched the way that I have been.

This is a truly enlightening and uplifting book especially for anyone who has lost a loved one. I lost my mother recently and this book helped me to know that she is alright and that she is still with us today. I love the fact that I can still talk to my mother and that she can still hear me and can help my family through her loss by just being with us. I receive signs I believe are from my mother and I feel her calming presence that helps me through my grieving process. I believe this book can help anyone who needs the comfort of knowing that our loved ones are still with us. Thank you Allison DuBois!

I read about a quarter of the book when I found myself flipping through pages, growing tired of her preaching. I kept flipping through to the chapter, "Family Matters," when I thought to myself, "This book just isn't for me." I might have found the rest of the book enjoyable, but I'll never know. If I wanted pop psychology, I would have bought another book.
