Timothy Callahan comes from a large Italian American family that loves big gatherings as well as Grandma Rosie's famous meatball recipe (although he still wishes she'd left out the raisins). But above all else, the Callahans love one another. This may not sound like the makings for high drama or complex fine literature, but that was not what author John Edward was after. As an internationally acclaimed psychic medium, Edward spends most of his days helping survivors work through the seemingly unbearable grief of losing a loved one. As a result, Edward wanted to offer a comforting message about the everlasting love that can bridge even death.
In order to get this message across, Edward presents a story about an endearing and seriously devoted family as they endure the final goodbye to a beloved matriarch. Soon after Timothy discoveries that his mother is dying of cancer, the family gathers to view old family movies. While watching the faces of deceased relatives on the movie screen, he begins to ponder the afterlife.
"As I look over at my mom, I know that she's wondering if all these faces of yesteryear will be the faces of her tomorrows. Will she see them when she crosses over? Will her loved ones welcome her on the other side, as we all want to believe? I hope so."
While his mother's cancer progresses, the narrator flashes back to his childhood when his mother explained that God was the sun, an epiphany that becomes more tangible as he wrestles with impending death. Readers who don't expect haute literature will be touched by this tearjerker story that offers tenderness and comfort. It's also an excellent book to give to those who are open to afterlife discussions and are grieving the loss of a loved one. --Gail HudsonAbout the Author:
