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.
