The stories are heart-warming and inspiring. The book is thought-provoking and beautifully written, and also contains sidebars with lots of pertinent and helpful information about psychic phenomena. I loved this book and look forward to more writings from Louisa Green in the future!
Now, after reading Louisa Oakley Green’s beautifully written and well researched stories about real-life psychic experiences, I’ve developed a new respect for, and interest in communications beyond my own every day world. This book is extremely well documented, with many sidebars of interesting facts and insights into the personalities of the individuals sharing their stories of psychic encounters. And photos give an intimate feel to something that really isn’t so scary after all.
Reading “Loitering at the Gate…” is like traveling with a good friend on a special journey. I highly recommend the experience!
I liked reading the more academic stuff interspersed, too, like how the psychic studies department at Duke University began or theories about psychic ability -- such as psychic mediums not experiencing time and space in as linear a fashion as those not so psychic or that the brain of people after trauma may sometimes be restructured in such a way as to make them more likely to experience paranormal phenomena.
She also tells good psi stories about non-family members. I appreciated the list of recommended books at the end, too.
This is a thoroughly delightful read and I recommend it highly.
