This is the moving story of a young girl battling leukemia. She realizes she is going to die and receives hope and comfort through nightly conversations with her favourite doll Angel, who helps her embrace a new perspective on dying and the possibility that consciousness may survive after death. Her fear of death is ultimately lifted by new-found spiritual wisdom and by the account of a near-death experience told to her by a young companion.

Evelyn Elsaesser Valarino's extensive knowledge of near-death experiences informs this astonishing book. It will be of great benefit and comfort to those facing their own death, or for parents and carers of those with serious illnesses. It will also enrich anyone who is reflecting on this essential aspect of life.
