I’m thrilled with Kirkus Review’s write-up on my book, A Reluctant Spirit: A True Tale of God, Ghosts and Gut Instincts! Here’s all except the book summary part (it gives away the ending, so I’m not including it).
“Berry’s intriguing debut memoir suggests that belief in the paranormal, including ghosts and psychic experiences, can be reconciled with orthodox Christianity.
…Present-tense narration and convincing dialogue make for a gripping account, and Berry successfully balances abstract thought with physical realities; even a scene as simple as peeling potatoes in her home allows for extended contemplation of spiritual happenings. Intriguing as it is, the memoir is so full of subjective experience that it is unlikely to convince doubters.
A born-again believer makes a diverting adventure story out of embracing her sensitivity to benevolent spirits.”
If you haven’t read my spiritual memoir, please consider doing so. You can buy it on Amazon.com or order it from your favorite bookstore.
Thank you for the support you’ve given me on this amazing journey!
Congrats, Kathleen – subject matter aside (of course I would be biased), I agree with the reviewer that you are a very gifted writer!
Thank you very much, Sharon!
