I have not read this book, but if you'd like to learn more about it, read on. The following is excerpted from a press release about the book:
"They’re Not Gone" shares stories of 13 people whose loved ones passed away and their eventual ‘reconnection’ through the assistance of local psychic medium Ricky Wood. Each story contains ‘evidence’ that their spirits are still very much alive.
Wood delivers specifics from names and dates to mannerisms and jokes to verify the spirit who is communicating.
“I wanted to share my story to give others hope, especially during the holiday season when missing them can be even more difficult. I am now 100% positive that our loved ones don’t vanish with death, they are still very much alive,” Morris said.
Morris tells of the loss of her brother to suicide when she was just 16. After hearing from him through the psychic medium, Wood, her life was transformed.
“I spent so many holiday seasons sad and depressed because I missed my brother so desperately. If I’d only known that he wasn’t just gone, I think it may have been a whole lot easier for me,” said Morris.
Following each story, there is a question and answer section where the reader gets to learn more about Wood’s beliefs based on his years of experience working as a medium.
“I’m very excited to have the opportunity to share some amazing true life stories. The information contained in this book could change so many people’s lives. I know - it changed mine,” Morris said.
Morris said her hope is that by sharing these stories it will bring peace to those who need it, especially during this holiday season.
