Finalist IAN Book of the Year Awards 2021
I wasn’t surprised when my grandma promised me she’d contact me from the after-life. Gram was born during the Progressive Era in Greenwich Village and she was one enlightened lady.
Believing in psychic abilities and life after death became a test of faith for me during a very dark time. Longing for a spiritual connection to her and to something deeper and more profound in my life, grieving and soul searching took me to unexpected places. I questioned the surety of my life as I knew it and wondered would Gram keep her promise and would I be open enough to receive it?
The Butterfly Promise is an intimate and reflective memoir about grief, family bonds and everlasting love. Through the author’s authentic voice of treasured memories and self-discovery, she reveals the vulnerability of taking a journey we all must take when a loved one passes. It’s an inspirational tale examining spiritual beliefs, faith in promises and about the power to believe in loving bonds that may hold true forever.
“Hands down one of the best reads I’ve experienced in a while!”
This book is so beautiful, the less I say about this the better, as I don’t want to ruin it for anyone. I laughed, I cried, and my heart ached. This is a beautiful memoir and I couldn’t recommend it more.”
