If the Spirit Moves You
Life and Love After DeathBook - 2002
If the Spirit Moves Youis the story of life after death-it chronicles a year in the life of Justine Picardie following the death of her sister, her soulmate, from breast cancer. It tells of the yearning to conjure again a voice from the vast silence, of how we fill the space that appears when someone dies, or how the void fills itself, of a bond between sisters that, like an endless conversation, carries on. Told in a series of diary entries from Good Friday 2000 to Easter Sunday 2001, it is filled with significant characters from the author's life-her Jewish academic father, who searches for answers to life's existential questions in the Kabbalah; her Catholic therapist mother; her husband; her children-as well as the spiritualists she encounters and their machines that speak to the dead. If the Spirit Moves Youis poignant and bracing, cosmic and uplifting, all at once.
