Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Do our animal companions understand us? How can we understand them? Reflections of the Heart gives us Sharon Callahan’s thought-provoking perspective on animal-human relationships. Definitely a most illuminating read for all animal lovers."
–David Frei, cohost of The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

"Thanks to Deborah DeMoss Smith, readers of Reflections of the Heart will be touched and healed profoundly by animal intuitive Sharon Callahan’s life and work, just as we have been–along with the hundreds of friends, family, veterinary clients, and patients to whom we’ve introduced her."
–Bob Goldstein, D.V.M., and Susan Goldstein, Earth Animal and the Healing Center for Animals

"A gold mine of inspiration, compassion, and love. Anyone who loves animals will love them even more after reading this wonderful collection of stories. Deborah DeMoss Smith knows just how to reconnect us with the magic, splendor, and awe of our animal kin through Sharon Callahan’s intuitive experience."
–Marc Bekoff, Professor of Biology, University of Colorado, Boulder, and coauthor of The Ten Trusts (with Jane Goodall)

Jerry, a tabby cat distressed by a beloved family member’s departure for college. Jupiter, a macaw parrot who yearned to live among his own kind. Rudy, a border collie whose grave illness did not stop him from keeping his profound promise to the young girl who loved him. All of these animals spoke with their human companions through the extraordinary gift of animal intuitive Sharon Callahan.

Now award-winning journalist Deborah DeMoss Smith relates these and many other true, inspirational tales of the human and animal lives Callahan has touched. Reflections of the Heart illustrates how the sometimes puzzling behavior of animals often mirrors our own actions and feelings. These stirring accounts offer a window into the emotional, mental, and spiritual lives of our animal companions–and remarkable insight into the special bond between animals and people.

Format: Paperback
This is a fascinating book to read. Many people are curious to know how closely some humans can communicate with animals and Sharon Callahan seems to have a very special gift. Luckily for the reader, Deborah Demoss Smith has a special gift as a writer because she really makes this story come alive. The stories of animals and their people are great reading and will help you understand your animal better.

Anyone interested in interspecies communication must read this book! Also anyone who loves animals and wants to understand more of their REAL purpose for being on Earth will be gratified, immensely humbled, awed and joyous at the information herein. I wish I could apprentice to Sharon Callahan; she really is remarkably in alignment with the animal kingdom; she is certainly doing what she came to Earth to do and I am happy that Deborah DeMoss Smith has created such a well-written and engaging portrait of Callahan.

The first six chapters of the book share with us Ms. Callahan's personal path through life - I'll say, she's passed through several crucibles in this one life, a trial by fire in many ways - and the rest are devoted to individual client stories - you meet cats, dogs, snakes, rabbits, bees and more - and learn what Ms. Callahan sees when she merges with their consciousness. Wonderful, revelatory book. I will now purchase the second book available about Callahan. Cheers.

This moving account of how our animal friends become so interrelated with our lives also has a strong message: the power of love to conquer obsticals in our daily lives.

So not only is this a great read about some incredible stories between folks and their animals but a lesson on more gracious ways to live.

It comes highly recommended.

Having a better understanding of the role of our animal companions, as this book has given me is wonderful. Ms Smith has given me a never before insight that has lifted me into a whole other realm of love for animals everywhere. I recommend this book to anyone who has animals. Feel the power of love with each story told. Imagine, a mirror to help guide us through our lives, in an unexpected source. Excellent!
