The Hand on the Mirror: A True Story of Life Beyond DeathThe Hand on the Mirror: A True Story of Life Beyond Death by Janis Heaphy Durham

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Durham writes an excellently researched memoir concerning her husband’s death and circumstances surrounding her since. I like how she looks at it from a logical point and investigates every aspect while never making something hard to swallow up or delving into the crazy sounding stuff. The book is moving and heartfelt while not being a sappy reach-for-the-tissue type. I received an ARC through The Reading Room in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.

On a personal note: I’ve had experiences that are supernatural. The definition of supernatural is:

  1. (of a manifestation or event) attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature.

Paranormal is a synonym and one I use more often than supernatural.
