The Amazing Afterlife of Animals by Karen A. Anderson is so much more than I expected it to be when I started reading. Karen took me on a journey with her as she stumbled through life, trying to find her path and her calling. Since childhood she had recognized that she had a unique gift; she was able to communicate with animals that were both living and dead. Unfortunately her gift was received with negative responses and disbelief and, because of that, she ended up hiding her gift and even suppressing it somewhat. She describes several careers that she experienced and how they all kept bringing her back to one thing – the animals. Karen shares several stories that are heartwarming reminders how our beloved pets are a part of us and never really leave us even after they cross over.
The Amazing Afterlife of Animals is an inspiring book that not only helps animal lovers like myself come to terms with the passing of my furry family members, but also inspires me to be brave enough to follow my intuition and give myself permission to follow my dreams. I found myself shedding tears one moment and then laughing the next moment at the light hearted humor, which is clearly a part of Karen’s personality. The writing is smooth and engaging and kept me turning the pages to see what would come next. This is a book that every pet lover should read. I highly recommend this book and this author. I will be looking up her other titles. Karen, you have gained a fan.
