Reviewed by Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite

In a beautifully written and fascinating guide by author Joanna Romer, Passing On: How to Prepare Ourselves for the Afterlife is a book that will keep readers' minds and hearts engaged from the start all the way through until the very end. The book is divided into easy to digest chapters that provide insight into the author's thoughts of the afterlife, as well as testimonials from people who have experienced NDEs or near death experiences. Questions that many people have are explored, including if we will see earthly loved ones in the afterlife, do we have a physical presence or are we a form of energy, and what is the afterlife truly like, and the answers provided are deeply spiritually satisfying.

I so enjoyed Passing On: How to Prepare Ourselves for the Afterlife. Author Joanna Romer has provided her readers with a beautiful and hopeful book in Passing On, one that is absolutely worth reading. Any person who has had questions, even fleeting ones, about what happens after death should pick up this short book and read it as soon as they can; it is enlightening and lovely at the same time. Author Romer has done an excellent job in balancing her own life experiences, personal research, and the experiences of others to provide valuable insight and information to all those with questions or concerns about afterlife existence, and her clear writing techniques make even some more abstract ideas come to life. I am very pleased to offer my highest recommendation for Passing On: How to Prepare Ourselves for the Afterlife, and I look forward to reading more from the very inspiring author, Joanna Romer, as soon as I am able to do so!
