This inspirational book is about the power of love and how it transcends time, space, and physicality, offering hope to those who have suffered the loss of someone dear to them. Particularly in these troubled times when so many lost souls are searching for answers.

The death of a loved one often gives the bereaved little reason to believe. When author Marie Elizabeth Thomas’ mother passed away, the world became utterly bleak. However, even at death, her mother was able to guide her to a life beyond. I’m Here and I’m Fine is a spiritual book which follows her story—from grievance to acceptance.

I’m Here and I’m Fine is based on the unusual and magical events that occurred shortly after the loss of her beloved mother. During the past five years, her mother has shown her through a series of “gentle miracles” that love is eternal and there is indeed an everlasting life. Unlike most New Age books on the market, this deals more with the special bond which the author shared with her mother: an umbilical cord that cannot be severed.

“I had lost my best friend, and now I was losing my faith. Maybe that’s why Mom decided to initiate a few miracles… I realize now that Mom’s mission was to restore my faith. As Judy Collins sang in “Amazing Grace,” I was lost, but now I’m found,” the author says.
