Reviews of The Life That Never Ends

Having read several books, over many years, on the afterlife and earthly experiences of it, “The Life That Never Ends” is, in my opinion, one of the best.  The sincerity and authenticity of the contributions, over six easy-to-read chapters, gives an uplifting and optimistic message that there is no death, and especially to those new to the subject of psychic experiences.  – Jill Woods

I found this a most interesting and enlightening book. Reading others’ spiritual encounters and experiences upholds my own belief that we are connected in more than the purely physical. It illustrates that our love for each other and our animals is a bond which holds fast at all times, and is a great source of strength and support. It is good to share such personal accounts. This is a sincere anthology, fascinating and sometimes very humorous. – Joy Harris

Thank you for all the hard work that putting this anthology together has taken.  It is beautifully presented and a pleasure to hold. – Robin Goodman
