After This - Claire Bidwell Smith
So she seeks to find out what happens after you die. Do you just disappear, is there something after death, does your spirit go to heaven, to hell, is there anything? We join her as she visits psychics, shamans, mediums, churches, Rabbis, yoga retreats, Bali and other places where she seeks out her answers. As well as the loss of her parents, two of her young girlfriends die, and this loss is also devastating for her, stirring up new emotions and questions.
Spaced throughout the book are beautiful letters that the author writes for her daughters - to tell them about herself and the way she lives her life, and how proud she is of them, how much she loves them. How lovely for the girls to know this, that if she were to die that they have these fragments of love to pick up and read and discover their mum. 4/5
