No matter the feelings about the afterlife, everyone yearns to see their departed family and friends at least one more time. Perhaps the most touching form of ghostly encounters is that with a family member or friend who has passed on. The power of being contacted by loved ones from beyond the grave is celebrated in these supernatural stories from around the world. Each tale of reconnection is related in the words of the person who experienced it along with thoughts about what they gained from the experience. In one story, each time two sisters quarrel over their late mother's possessions, the sound of phone ringing can be heard even when there is no phone around. In another, a mother returns to her daughter in a dream to provide comfort and relief during trying times. The themes of contacting the living for one last goodbye runs throughout this collection, offering consolation and closure to those who have lost beloved family members and friends.
