Interesting book, and fascinating anecdotes. But what a flawed inconsiderate twit. I feel sorry for her husband. (The first one).

Also she made some choices and was told by Forces Otherworldly that it would be safe. I won’t put in spoilers etc, but...ummm...ya gotta be kidding me.

Proof positive that you don’t have to be enlightened, decent or nice to have a spiritual gift.

Saxman's memoir is exciting, shocking, and at times very sad and unsettling. I listened to this as an audiobook and finished it within a few days. Whether you believe in her psychic abilities or not, I think this is a great story for anyone who has ever been made to feel that they aren't incredibly special and worthy of love and acceptance. One of my new favorites.
