  1. Won this from a first reads giveawayI wanted to like this book I tried to think outside the box, and I also tried to keep an open mind But it just did not happen I will not say this book was unreadable, as I made it through But was definitely not good I am sure I will be one of the only ones giving this a one star rating, but this is what I won the book for To read, and reflect I am a HUGE fan of anything paranormal, mind you I am not a believer, but the topic and study intrigues me I felt that [...]


  2. I really wanted to like this book It s a great one for readers who know little to nothing about the paranormal or metaphysics A lot of the information has already been covered by people a lot learned and experienced than the author Also, it s very hard to relate to the author as she is obviously rather well to do and there are frequent reminders of this fact such as impromptu trips across country, multiple homes, her early retirement, luxurious preoccupation with aging and body image, and also [...]

  4. I was completely disappointed by the book Maybe it was me but I expected some scientific basis for her to back what she believes were experiences with her deceased husband Max in the afterlife but instead got and I m para phrasing windchimes but there was not wind a heavy door opened closed with no one there, it never had before , a clock was stopped at the exact time of Max s death then there was a power surge and it started again , notes popping out of notes that must be messages from Max and [...]


  5. When Janis Heaphy Durham s husband dies, she is devastated When she begins receiving messages from the great beyond, she instinctively kicks into reporter mode she was the publisher of the Sacramento Bee and begins investigating how and why he is contacting her This is a logical, thoroughly researched, and scientific look at the messages she received Our society doesn t talk about the afterlife enough and Durham discusses this as well Read this to help you deal with loss Read this because we wil [...]

Originally posted on The Reading Room Disclaimer I won this book for free through giveaways in exchange for an honest review 2.5 Stars This book was interesting but a very slow read I thought this book was going to be really fast paced, but it was the complete opposite of what I expected.Want a book on walls shaking Lights flickering Rugs walking cough I mean sliding down the hallway And random hand prints and footprints appearing, appearing, and reappearing Then this is your book If noten walk [...]

  8. Could not finish it It was recommended to me since I recently lost my sister I believe in signs, but this author is so self absorbed, selfish and narcissistic that I could not get past my dislike for her that I stopped halfway through.


  9. I almost didn t read this book, because I have read so many books about life after death that I didn t need to read any about it Still, I felt it calling me, and I m glad I answered the call With this book, Janis took an investigative approach to figuring out what happens after we die, speaking to myriad experts on all facets of parapsychology The skeptical newspaper woman in her made her the perfect person to conduct this investigation as she came into it with no preconceived notions she had n [...]


  10. I ve never read a book about ghosts from a mostly scientific proof viewpoint, so this was a new take on the idea of communicating with loved ones from the other side for me Janis is a retired news journalist editor, and her writing and research was very thorough and well laid out, easy to follow I had no idea there was such a thing as a Masters in parapsychologye really did her homework and shared such interesting information about the science of studying beyond the tangible That was impressive. [...]


  11. I love this subject matter and am very open to paranormal experiences, as I ve had quite a few myself That said, this book was 95% the author patting herself on the back for being an excellent mother, wife, and solver of mysteries, 4% paranormal activity like a door shutting , and 1% justifying that she eats nothing but fruits and vegetables while her husband eats gasp pancakes and Burger King The chapter about losing a child was the most interesting part to me, as it was chock full of legitimat [...]


  12. I really wanted to give than 3 stars I just can t If you want scientific facts then this is for you However I was expecting a story and not a whole lot of story here just facts and people and their history The story itself was about 1 4 of the book the rest was other info on research Not for me I have myself had several paranormal experiences and I wanted story I suppose It was a very slow read for me and a bit disappointing I received this book direct from the publisher for review.


  13. I received this book through GoodReads First Reads.I intended to read this book on a whim Being a sceptic, I did not intend this to change my views of the afterlife, but was interested in other views Wow The events and the scientific analysis from several well respected sources really opened my mind to other possibilities This book is very well written, well documented, and believable My limited experience with the afterlife was reinforced as true to life I highly recommend this book, It is cert [...]


  14. I felt confident that the author was an intelligent person, not by any stretch of the imagination a kook or nutcase I found the book completely believable I like these sort of books and I found the first half mostly engaging The author seems like she is probably a very nice lady, but her constant pedigree dropping really got on my nerves It seemed important to her that we know how intelligent she and everyone she deals with is I suppose she wanted to be certain to ensure credibility, but it was [...]


  15. I thought the book was fascinating and a beautiful description of the events that came about after the death of her husband I am a great believer in one s energy living on after the death of our bodies I think the messages and signs of love shared with this author are amazing and her research into her questions well stated and addressed I know and greatly respect someone who used to work with this author and he knew the deceased as well and how much he had adored his wife and lover during his ph [...]


  16. Interesting perspective on this authors journey to seek answers that sometimes allude us our entire lives her thoughtful seeking journey inspired me than I anticipated and truth.love does trump all


  17. Loved this book The science got a little boring but her story is amazing, Told in a way that even the biggest skeptic would have to ne saying hmmmm For anyone who has lost someone and doesnt believe that there s once we pass, this book is a must read.


  18. Two weeks ago we had the exterior of our house painted It was a long time coming Our painter and his crew was fabulous They dug around the perimeter of the house and painted as far down as they could, so that if the soil ever shifted, no one would ever see the old paint When it the paint dried, the put the soil back in place.It was after they pulled back the soil, but before they put it back into place, that I found what I thought was a baby cockroach on my pillow My husband was, of course, out [...]


  19. Qu es lo que sabemos del mundo del otro lado de la vida Las ponencias no son nada serias, de hecho Holliwood nos ha llenado de muchas cosas interesantes Fantasmas Dame un largometraje que toque fantasmas y vamos a salir gritando, viendo sangre correr por las paredes y el suelo, as inconclusos, venganzas y maldiciones La literatura nos ayuda a m s de lo mismo os recuerdo que adoro el mundo paranormal Podr a encontrar un libro que tratase el tema sin querer venderme alguna tonter a Eso da mas mied [...]


  20. I reall wanted to love this book I wanted to be as fulfilled at the end of reading it as I was excited seeing a brand new copy in my local library and grabbing it as soon as I saw it Unfortunatley this wasn t the case.I am a very open minded and spiritual person although I dont have a religious undertone to my beliefs I have read a lot of many different versions of paranormal, ghost stories, angel spirit guide experiences etc over the years to get a sense of passion and contentment with an autho [...]


  21. I am always amused that people who believe that the Bible and ministers and priests have all the answers regarding spirituality and fervently believe that solely on faith, without any scientific proof, yet they demand that this type of spiritual contact described in The Hand on the Mirror is not believable without scientific proof I ve read books on life after life experiences, and non traditional spiritual beliefs for over thirty years, and I am a Christian and I do have faith When I heard Jani [...]


  22. Janis Heaphy Durham loses her husband to cancer and on the first anniversary of his death strange things begin to happen, things that cannot easily be explained or forgotten For three years, coinciding with the day her husband died, a mysterious, powdery handprint shows up on the bathroom mirror Janis wasn t the only person to witness the phenomenon It couldn t be her imagination but she did wonder if her grief was causing her to see and do things that were unexplainable As publisher of the Sacr [...]


  23. I picked this book up at the library because it looked interesting Ghosts and the afterlife seem to be a new interest of mine Durham tells the story of her husband, Max, dying young from cancer Before he died he promised to find some way to contact her from the afterlife After he died, she begins to notice lights flickering, clocks stopping at 12 44 the time he died , rugs moving, and handprints on the bathroom mirror Durham becomes shocked and intrigued by all these occurrences She takes an ear [...]


  24. I tried to like this book I really did As someone who has seen signs from their deceased spouse, I should have loved it However, I believe those signs can t be explained because they are all about faith If you are a Christian, this book isn t for you, and I ve read a dozen books that relate science to faith, so it isn t that It is the whole ghost feel to it I don t think the author had faith before her spouse died, and it certainly shows in how she approaches what might have been a sign from God [...]


  25. This book by Janis Durham was an interesting book for me to read I am a Christian and a Methodist one at that I have noticed the increasing publishing by people who have become spiritual but not religious or rather Christian I can really admire the time and effort she has put into her search for understnading I can also agree with some of the psychological relities that we know from many of the studies at Duke etc because I was a college major in psychology and have followed up on them over the [...]


  26. I won this book through First reads in exchange for my review.This isn t a normal genre that I read but I find it fascinating I would recommend reading if you know little about the subject but it seems like it may be a bit elementary for those who have read or know a lot about life after death.Because the author has a background in journalism that spans decades I believe her when she talks about her experience and being a skeptic at first This wasn t the type of booked that sucked me in and I co [...]


  27. An interesting book to be sure, but truly one based on conjecture I do not doubt that Janis Durham experienced what she did, but it isn t completely conclusive of life after death, it s of her experiences that had some peculiar oddities that had a little smoke n mirror qualities I sometimes think that if you want something to be , then it is Can t say it any better Personally, if a weird hand print surfaced on my bathroom mirror, i d be a little freaked out All that being said, I know of peopl [...]


  28. When Max died, his wife Janis thought she would never see or hear from him again However, strange phenomena begin to occur shortly afterward that led her to believe that something was going on On the first anniversary of his death, she finds a powdery handprint on a bathroom mirror in the home they shared The handprint is to big for her hand and was not created my anyone in the house Is this handprint and the multitude of phenomena that she has been experiencing proof that somehow Max is trying [...]


  29. Ik ben helemaal vol van dit boek, mede doordat ik de auteur heb ontmoet een super lieve vrouw Maar eerst over wat ze heeft geschreven WAT een bijzonder boek Waar dit boek over gaat in n zin Over de brug tussen dit leven en de volgende verbonden door liefdevol contact tussen de levenden en de geest van je geliefden Prachtig Mijn exemplaar zit vol met bladwijzers en ik heb allemaal passages gemarkeerd waar ik over na wil denken Ik las het in fases, de wetenschap die de parapsychologie heet is boei [...]


  30. I think some of the reviews on this book are a bit harshif you aren t into the paranormal it goes without saying that it isn t for you, but it s still reasonably well written and researched.It s true that many of the author s experiences flickering lights, rugs moving, strange dreams hardly seem to warrant such an extensive exploration into the supernatural After all, these sort of unexplained things happen to us all and there s usually a rational, earthly reason why However, the best bits of th [...]
