Jami Yeats-Kastner's story is both a personal account of a mother's ultimate loss and a universal message of growth and hope. It is centred on the loss of their young son, Sam, and the deeply spiritual path that this sets her on. It is a very sad book but not a depressing one. Sam's death forces her to confront other personal truths about herself, her life and Sam's older special needs brother, Jack. Jami shares her journey with searing honesty and a wry sense of humour and, as she finds her way back into the light, it becomes less about grief and more about self-discovery, about synchronicity and about following the signs that are everywhere. If this story has a message, it is that finding your own true path is the only way to personal self-fulfilment and that it is only when we are ourselves fulfilled that we can be of proper service to others. Initially an unwilling seeker, this is what Jami eventually discovers, and in doing so she draws on all her available strength and inspirational new insights to continue building a happy future for herself and her young family.
