He Blew Her A Kiss by Angie Pechak Printup and Kelley Stewart Dollar (review)

He Blew Her a Kiss: Communications from loved ones who have passedProduct Description

It comes as a brush of the shoulder, a breath, a familiar scent, or perhaps a gentle breeze when everything else is still. These remarkable sensations are all examples of our loved ones communicating to us after they are gone from this life-letting us know they are in a better place, and yet still with us.
He Blew Her a Kiss collects dozens of such stories of after-death communication, in which husbands, wives, children, grandparents, and others, gently let us know that their spirit lives on. This series of short, delightfully written vignettes-based on real-life stories from all over the country-describes:
-How a simple note tied to a balloon proves the incredible power of love to transcend all, following the death of a beloved wife
-The voicemail message a sister receives after her brother has passed-and its incredible tidings of hope
-The uncanny revelation contained in a TV game show that supplies comfort to a family after the death of their patriarch
-The nightlight that flickers only when a granddaughter speaks of her late grandmother-and how it refuses to go out...and much more
Filled with touching accounts that will make you smile and cry at the same time, He Blew Her a Kiss is required reading for anyone who has ever experienced the loss of a loved one and needs a little help to carry on.
 
My take on this book:
He Blew Her A Kiss is a compilation of short stories that normal everyday people graciously shared with the authors of how the grief of loosing a loved one can be eased when they get signs from the loved one from beyond.
This is a book filled with hope, and love and more than that faith. Faith in knowing that we aren't separated from our loved ones at death that they continue to watch over us and to comfort us so that we can accept and deal with their absence on earth.
I couldn't put this book down, I read it in one sitting. Each story is so touching, and even though it is in essence a book about death it isn't a sad read at all but instead inspirational,and heartwarming.  I actually found myself smiling reading several of the stories, knowing that grieving family members were comforted and able to find peace, because of their encounters with their loved ones.
I would have to say in my personal experience I am a true believer of encounters with deceased loved ones, and whether they actually contacted me or not my heart believed they did and that gave me the strength to make peace with their death.
I would say this book is a must read for everyone, and if you have ever had trouble dealing with the death of a loved one then this book is definitely for you.
The authors are collecting stories for a second book, so if you have had an encounter with a loved one that has passed on that you would like to share then be sure and check out their website at http://www.heblewherakiss.com/.
 
Even though I was provided a copy of this book by the authors for review in no way did it alter my opinion of this book!
