Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Elizabeth is an educator, speaker and writer on the subject of animal hospice, pet loss bereavement and grief. She is a poet and a novelist. She has a background in holistic veterinary medicine, animal nutrition and pet environmentalism. She supports pet owners with end of life care and options for their companion animals, and assists them in planning their pet’s transition. “I am a soul friend to all animals, a wordsmith, a truth-seeker, a lover of tea, a bit of a run-on-sentence maniac and a spiritual being lost in the constant unfolding beauty of the human-animal bond.”

More About the Author

Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, Elizabeth Allen emigrated to California in the early 90's. Writing her first novel at thirty six and putting it on the shelf until ten years later, proved to be necessary medicine. "Shedding Ailish" is still looking for a home, which she believes will happen in due time. Today a large portion of her writing is fueled by her love of animals and assisting animal caregivers with end of life care and support. "Love Crosses Over", a collection of short stories and poetry about messages from people and animals who have crossed over, has been mending the hearts of those in need of healing, followed just four months later by "Manifesting Mongrel - The Summer of our Content", a story of loss, healing and the medicinal properties of an animal's love to help heal the human wound. She speaks on the subject of grief and loss, animal hospice and more in her San Diego community at weekly and monthly events, while continuing to hold the hand of the grieving animal caregiver.

Elizabeth's book, a frank exercise in self-discovery, has a quirky charm.
I enjoyed reading it because of the author's unique interpretation of love, loss and learning to live again.
In particular, Elizabeth shows how having a spiritual dimension to our lives can actually make us happier.
She writes frankly about the death of her parents; their impact on her life; her love for them and how grief has had a positive impact on her life.
Her beloved pets, both alive and dead, are an integral part of her life and there is no doubt that each and every one of them have left their paw prints across her heart.

I've never read a book quite like this - with all the charm and wit you'd expect from an Irish storyteller, and yet laced with haunting poetry. Elizabeth has discovered new ways to describe loss - but also new ways to find hope. From family and friends to pets ... she takes us on her personal journeys full of heart and surprise.

Love Crosses makes for a beautiful healing gift to anyone who has experienced loss, especially that of a beloved pet. Her stories are poetry for the grieving spirit that give you insight and hope, written in her Irish wit that makes your heart smile.

Elizabeth's shares that the end of a life does not mean the end of the spirit, I really enjoy it, for it's a book that you can just pick and start from anywhere, love that.

Ms Allen's book is a pleasant conversation and a memorable one at that. I believe that I heard her enunciating the entire book. There is no belying her Irish heritage as her lilt of language is truly wonderful. Saying, here is a story of mine own! I felt as though she were sitting next to me expressing emotion into my reading. What I understood was a group of stories about love and remembrance that were sensitive to me, written by someone who appreciates lives. My spiritual readings are generally classics. However, I came out of this reading realizing that, here, personal sharing is at it's best.

When my German Shepherd, Ringo (my soul mate) was diagnosed with liver/spleen cancer at the young age of 7, I sought help where ever I could get my hands on it. Through several Holistic healers/vets, I found "Love Crosses Over". I did not read it until a few days after I had to put Ringo to sleep. I describe my pain as "getting punched in the heart" for it truly hurt me physically and right to the core of my soul. Reading the book was the first step I took toward healing. I immediately was immersed in her world, which was now mine (again, as I'd lost my mother 13 years ago). Her words came straight from the heart. I could feel her energy and love as I read. The fact that she has also suffered from loss (several times over) made her book all that more honest and deep. She too has felt what I am feeling right now. Like me, she loves intensely. When you love at such a high intensity though, you also grieve just as intensely. I was swept away by her life's story in Ireland. Like me, she was not born and raised in the U.S. I was born and raised in Colombia, South America. Being away from family is not an easy thing. It's amazing that two complete strangers from across several oceans can actually be so much alike.

Elizabeth helped me look at death from another perspective. One I am not familiar with. That all death really is, is that we cross over to the other side, but we are always here, there, every where and ever so present. Our spirits live on. And so I feel and see my Ringo everywhere around me.

I am also blessed to have met Elizabeth as a result of my loss. I am blessed to have met a true true angel.

Whether you've lost a parent, sibling, close relative and like me, a fur baby, you will not be able to put this book down. I devoured it at a time in need.
