Once you have embraced the spirits, life will never be the same again.

Terrorized by a poltergeist for years as a teenager, Barbara Parks never imagined she would overcome her fear of the spirit world. This collection of true ghost stories relates her dramatic, heartwarming journey toward embracing her gifts and facing her fears.

  • A poltergeist named Ted who pelts bystanders with rocks
  • A deceased soldier who wants nothing more than to tell his living comrade that everything will be okay
  • The spirit of a twenty-year-old man who routinely awakens a sleeping woman by shaking her bed

These are just some of the spirits Barbara Parks has encountered that she shares in the pages of this riveting book. Whether she's delivering messages to surviving loved ones, calming angry poltergeists, or capturing photographs of spirits, these real-life paranormal encounters illuminate the mysterious spirit world—and the fascinating life of a medium.
