    I found this book through a connection on LinkedIn that mentioned that it was a Christian book about a mother s grieving process after the tragic death of her daughter While I certainly do not discount what this mother has gone through, I am surprised that this should be classified as a Christian book Her daughter, Brooke, was clearly a Christian by what I read in the book however, the mother did not cope and grieve in any way that I would consider Christian She consulted mediums, read books I found this book through a connection on LinkedIn that mentioned that it was a Christian book about a mother s grieving process after the tragic death of her daughter While I certainly do not discount what this mother has gone through, I am surprised that this should be classified as a Christian book Her daughter, Brooke, was clearly a Christian by what I read in the book however, the mother did not cope and grieve in any way that I would consider Christian She consulted mediums, read books about how the dead contact us from beyond, hypnosis and even had a past lives regression session with her therapist While I will concede that this book deals with a terrible tragedy and how one mother discovered her own spirituality, I would caution readers that this spirituality is not based in Christian theology

    My heart breaks for this mother s unnecessary loss So thankful she was able to find peace The education this story provides on the dangers of travel outside the U.S is invaluable This young lady may have died a tragic death and departed this earth early but she left behind her spirit of love of God with many who continue spreading her joy and love.
