I must admit that this wasn’t a book I was originally going to include in Cygnus. It came out in May and I initially thought it was perhaps too pagan and too “up close and personal” with the reality of death. However I think it’s a touching and perceptive book that deals with issues that are hard to find discussed elsewhere. Death is something we all have to deal with, usually many times, and it helps if the process is meaningful. The author is a spirit medium and is very used to being present at death. She suggests positive ways of approaching it and relates many encouraging stories and messages about communication with the person during and after death. I think if we read this book we will come up with better ways of helping friends and relatives with this transition and perhaps we can also make constructive plans for our own.
