This is a book about feelings of the heart.  

Human beings live a precarious existence. We feel deep love and profound passion. We strive to achieve, to create, and to excel. We have hopes and dreams, and we pursue them with energy, sacrifice, and all our hearts. People, places, and things are precious to us; especially people. Despite normal frustrations and misunderstandings, our families and friends are beloved. Together we share our joys and our sorrows, our triumphs and our failures, our fears and our courage.

And yet, we are mortal. We don’t like to obsess over it, and rightly so! Who wants to live in a dark cloud? But in times of deepest contemplation we remember that our lives, and the lives of all those we cherish, will end. We hope for longevity and tell ourselves that such endings are far in the future; but people seem to catch up with their futures. We also know that accidents, diseases, and acts of violence can snuff out life in a moment’s time.

 The profound hope that life transcends our short and frail mortal existence, along with deeply comforting spiritual impressions and experiences, help us to move forward with faith that our own lives and our beloved relationships will continue beyond the grave. 

 Hence, a voyage into the world of spirits is included in this dramatic story of intense parental love and harrowing events that threaten the lives of beloved ones.

A story of love and a journey through time . . . from premortal yearnings to Spirit World reunions. Ambition and calamity shape the lives of Mark, Natalie, and Jacques. Each must face a moment of truth, a choice of light or darkness, a path of life or death, a destiny of joy or misery. Gilles, struggling to comprehend his brother's death, prays for solace in a church . . . and overhears a plot to kidnap Latter-day Saint missionaries. His plea for help leads to mortal danger. A resurrection occurs and prophecies are fulfilled. Elders Lewis and Collins, missionary companions in Paris, France, unaware of their perilous circumstance, are led by the Spirit to the door of one whom the Lord has prepared. Stories of deep family love will touch your heart and draw you closer to your own beloved ones.
