A touching book that will help heal your grieving heart,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Never Letting Go: Heal Grief with Help from the Other Side (Paperback)
This book is a must-read for anyone who is struggling with the loss of a loved one- pets included!
As a lawyer and a spirit medium, Mark may seem like quite the contradiction, yet that's the beauty of this combination and what is so refreshing about this book. Although he grew up around his psychic parents, the lawyer in him required some kind of proof, so for a large portion of his life he wasn't totally in acceptance of his own ability. It took an amazing experience (which he shares in the book) after his mother's passing to prove to him that this was real. She brought him an important message: "let go of the sorrow, but hold onto the love." This is Mark's mission- to help others heal from the heavy burden of grief, which he does in his work as a medium and speaker.
Whatever issues with grief you're going through, from feeling guilty that your last words to someone were angry or hurtful, to losing someone as a result of suicide, Mark guides us through individual grief experiences from a number of readings with real clients- people just like you. Through sharing these readings, Mark is not only able to share with us the insights and messages from the Other Side, but also to help us see that we are not alone in our struggle with losing a loved one.
In chapter 4 "How Spirits Contact Us," Mark helps us to understand how our loved ones are still in our lives, reassuring us and helping us through our daily struggles. He talks about things like coming home to find a photo album laying open to a particular photo of a loved one, or hearing a song on the radio that reminds you of your loved one just as you were thinking about him or her. So many of us have these experiences but write them off as wishful thinking-- not so! It's wonderful to know that we're never alone and we don't really die. I highly recommend this book to you, and hope you will share it with others as well!

Never Letting Go by the very gifted and articulate Lawyer/Medium, Mark Anthony is a page turner.
Every account that he shares, is something one can relate to on all levels of ones beliefs, and background.
Most especially, this time of year.
This Oxford studied attorney applies evidence with-in his God given gift to help, guide, heal, and understand a way through pain, frustration, guilt, helplessness and unending questions.
The experience of someone dying that you either loved or had unresolved issues, combined with raw emotion,"Never Letting Go", gives one courage and peace to get through this painful place..one cannot avoid.
Mark Anthony's fascinating study of quantum physics,frequencies of human and spirit contact is sound, logical and uplifting.
He makes sense on so many levels! Spiritual, scientific and humanistic. He guides one to transcend and evolve through their grief by giving us a perspective that is enlightening. They are with us. Forever, just in another form, and to recognize when they are near.
Mark Anthony's," Never Letting Go" is decidedly a easy read, yet powerfully insightful of the everlasting spirit of the soul.
What a revelation and satisfying undertaking he shares and teaches. I'm reading it a second time and am finding new things to think about as I move through my journey of grief and healing. Marie Phyllis

Please lose the phrase "Must read". While you may think it's a must read, many people won't. Just stick to the facts when reviewing a book and people will decide for themselves if they are ready for this material. I wish I had $20.00 for every book review that somebody said was a "must read". That phrase is purely subjective, but you can add more clarity by explaining the authors' writing style, or how it personally helped you cope during a difficult time in your life.
The overuse of the word "us" rather than me leads me to believe this book review was posted by a friend or publisher - it doesn't sound genuine and home-made...more like a frozen TV dinner. You review was like reading the back dust cover; you never once mentioned why you "purchased" this book.

Hello, M. Stanley. Instead of critiquing my style of reviewing, maybe you could find a book to read? The review section is for opinons on the books, sweetheart, not your opinion of my opinion. I'll thank you to move along now and bother someone else with your remarks.
