If The Spirit Moves You

Love and Life After Death

3.48 based on 106 ratings & 14 reviews on


In September 1997 Justine Picardie’s sister, Ruth, died of breast cancer. In this remarkable book, Justine tells the story of life after death – a year in her own life after Ruth’s death; and of a search for the afterlife in the age of reason, of scepticism, of science. It tells of the yearning for a voice amongst the silence, and of how we fill the space that appears when someone dies; or how the space fills itself.
