Comfort for the bereaved through understanding dreams of the departed

Exploring the world of special dreams—clear, unforgettably vivid encounters with loved ones who have died—this unique collection shares the personal stories of those who have experienced them, including the author herself, and reveals the distinct qualities surrounding this phenomenon. After an introduction that examines whether or not the contact is real and a questionnaire to determine if readers have had any themselves, more than 80 poignant stories offer comfort to mourners, detailing the special bonds between the dreamers and grandparents, parents, siblings, in-laws, children, spouses, and friends.


"I am fascinated with the book Special Dream as it speaks to me . . . I have had many such dreams. They are quite real and reassuring." —Cliff Robertson, Academy Award–winning actor

"People who have had a special dream will find this book immensely helpful." —Helen Fitzgerald, author, The Grieving Child and The Mourning Handbook
