Animals and the Afterlife: True Stories of Our Best Friends’ Journey Beyond Death
by Kim Sheridan
Format: Paperback

This subject has been the author’s lifelong passion, and she has made it her personal quest to find the answers. Kim Sheridan grew up with animals as her constant companions. Each time she faced the death of a beloved animal, along with the pain came the same questions, to which she could find no answers. Then, mysterious things began to happen which she could not explain.

Unable to dismiss these mysterious events, Kim embarked upon what became an incredible journey to uncover the truth. Along with her own experiences, she compiled the extraordinary experiences of ordinary people from around the world. She discovered overwhelming evidence that forever erased her own doubts of an afterlife for animals. Today she is a highly respected and sought after expert on this subject, and much of her time is devoted to the care of elderly animals making their transition to spirit.

Since its publication in 2003, Animals and the Afterlife has offered immense comfort and reassurance to those who have ever cherished an animal, and food for thought for anyone who has ever questioned the place of these beloved creatures in the larger scheme of things. The book offers something that resonates with everyone, and does not endorse any particular religion. It does, however, offer objective observations and personal accounts of very profound experiences and emotions linked to after death communication.

This book might just change your perception of death…or lead you on an incredible journey of your own! Animals and the Afterlife makes a heartfelt gift, a captivating read, and a necessary addition to everyone’s lending library! It is a must have for all animal lovers!
