SPIRIT SISTERS was inspired by the scores of women who would preface their story with 'I've hardly told anyone this, but...'. Thejournalist would scratch the surface and their story would tumble out; they'd given up the ghost, so to speak.In SPIRIT SISTERS you'll meet Australian women of all ages who share their very personal encounters with the supernatural.From a high-flying banking executive whose life changed for ever after a visit from a bizarre, winged entity, to a mother of sevenwho was held and soothed by her husband five days after she'd buried him, to the woman who lost most of her family in one caraccident, this book is heart-breaking, inspiring, scary and comforting.In an age when psychics are called the new therapists and buying your own high-tech ghost-hunting equipment is just a clickaway on eBay, this book is a celebration of the one thing that hasn't changed in hundreds of years.When a friend draws close, lowers her voice and begins to tell you her ghost story, as her eyes widen and her smile fades, as thevery air around you seems to thicken and the back of your neck begins to tingle...isn't it delicious?
