The Girl Who Could Read Hearts: A Family and The Power of Intuition

15 Awards   Kate is born gifted with a 7th sense ─ the ability to read human hearts coupled with keen intuition. She struggles to understand her premonitions while surrounded by skeptical, sometimes cruel, family members and their secrets. "Riveting." 

"An incredible experience that embraces love, faith, joy, sadness, imagination, and hope". INSPIRATIONAL & UPLIFTING. 

Set in the San Francisco Bay Area and inspired by a vivid dream with the author's deceased sister, this spell-binding novel blends autobiographical fact and 
narrative fiction straight from the author's heart. 

"Your heart goes on a roller coaster ride". Intrigued by miracles, angels, the afterlife, souls, the power of intuition & prayer? "Amazing" 

"A moving, memorable story... a highly recommended, evocative read..." Intuitive individuals and empaths resonate with this book. 
Is Kate psychic? A medium? An empath? Simply intuitive? Empowered by Angels?  A suspense-filled family storyline with an electrifying finish.
If you enjoy inspirational, spiritual books like The ShackThe Alchemist, or The Celestine Prophecy, or authors like Ann Voskamp, Sandra Ingerman, Lorna Byrne, or CS Lewis, you'll be captivated.
The segments of this story that embrace death are drawn from Sherry's real-life experiences when she was present with beloved family members as they passed away. Her wondrous encounters of loved ones' spirits after their physical deaths are deeply engaging. This tantalizing novel percolates with subtle wisdom that is inspirational, transformational, and healing. 
"A breath of fresh, clean air..." "Intriguing characters" "... a page turner"

It delves into the mysteries of death and of angels, intuition, finding God in all, and true love. Full of spirit, it brims with inspiration, daring, hope, and the importance of following our dreams.
