Gina Ravenswood, author of the new book "Shaking Hands with Love" (published by Balboa Press), has lived her life in the pursuit of helping others understand theirs. A medium by calling and trade, she enjoys a complicated relationship with death and what follows. When her dear friend, Nannette, was dying of cancer, Gina was at her side. The night Nannette took her last breath, her friend was there. But this was not the end for these two friends; it was the start of an extraordinary journey they would share - to death and beyond.
In "Shaking Hands with Love," Ravenswood tells the true story of a remarkable friendship and the profound journey of life. With candor and awe, she details experiencing an angelic presence which ushered Nannette to her afterlife, and she details the many conversations she had with Nannette years after Nannette's death.
"This book turns the sadness of death into an interesting adventure, and explains the importance of love and how it contributes to our next destination," explains Ravenswood. "It illustrates how the pain from losing a loved one can be eased through awareness of the other side."
Both a heartfelt memoir and an exposé of the continuum of life, "Shaking Hands with Love" imparts the importance of love and the power of knowledge.
"The book is packed with information about the other side, with lots of understanding about personal love," says Ravenswood. "Many question why a loved one dies and if the other side exists. These questions are answered, and the answers trigger the inner knowing of the ongoing journey as a reality not a fantasy, giving the reader new food for thought."
