"You must have a place to which you can go in your heart, your mind, or your house, almost everyday, where you do not owe anyone and where no one owes you--a place that simply allows for the blossoming of something new and promising."
- Joseph Campbell

He Blew Her A Kiss / Review
Authors: A. P. Printup and K. S. Dollar
Paperback: 188 pages Publisher: Outskirts Press
(July 23, 2010) ISBN-10: 1432760920
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.
I love personal accounts like these! They are tender, reassuring, compassionate, and sometimes even funny. I've collected dozens of books on life after death over the years and will proudly add this one to my library.
The stories are all short and to the point; well-edited and easy to read, while giving hope for an extension of life hereafter. The reader does not feel like they must read the entire book in one sitting, but can read each personal story as time permits.
I'm definitely looking forward to the next book. 5 stars*****
