I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has lost a loved one, totally convinced it would ease their pain instantly ...... I would highly recommend this book to every insurance agent in this country, and the world, and give a copy to each and every one of their clients who suffer a loss of a loved one .......I would highly recommend this book to all those people who fear death ..... I would highly recommend this to book to everyone. It is very uplifting ..... you will find a smile on your face often as you read through the various chapters. It is an easy read .... no complicated words ..... none in fact. Well done Lynda. (I know Lynda personally, as I knew Craig) .....I only wish I had known them as much as I know them now after reading the book. Isn't that always the case ..... after someone dies, you learn things about the deceased that you wish you had known before. Lynda uses the term "crossing over" in her book as opposed to "dying". You will learn what that means. Loved every page of it!!!

"A Breath Away" - is a story of love, illness, and then the journey of hope after a death loss of a spouse which brought smiles, tears and a remembrance for me. You don't have to have experienced the death of a spouse to enjoy and be inspired by Lynda's journey. The spiritual or spirit component related through Lynda's experiences serve as a reminder and a confirmation of the experiences many people have, but feel apprehensive about mentioning.

Lynda writes a beautiful story of the remarkable Love shared between her and her husband, Craig. I could feel their love while turning the pages , dying to see what else would cross my eyes. The connection they shared and still share even after his physical departure — Amazing!

"I LOVE your book!"
Thank you for sharing your sweet and sad story so freely. I know that your journey will help countless others who are going through a similar experience. You are so honest. I am impressed with your receptiveness to this new and unusual way of thinking and being. Craig must be one very determined spirit! He obviously loves you with all his heart. So, thank you, Lynda, for writing this gem. I know it must have been painful, but you have captured your love and your new way of thinking on paper, and it is truly a gift. With gratitude -
I was very inspired by it. I have always wondered about the After Life.
I was sitting outside yesterday reading the last few pages of your book and started thinking about my mother, if she had ever given me any signs that I missed. What happened next just left me in awe! While reading, a lady bug landed on my book for just a second and then it flew away! My mother loved lady bugs and I had my ears pierced in Holland when I was 3 years old and my first pair of earrings were lady bugs. Now that could not have been a coincidence. Thank you Lynda for helping me connect with my mother. I will certainly keep my thoughts open to other signs.
Recommended for anyone:
I'd recommend Lynda's book for anyone who loves love, loves a real-life love story and believes that love survives the loss of a loved one. Lynda is just an ordinary woman who had an extraordinary love with a wonderful man she, sadly, lost to illness. Although part of the book is incredibly sad, it is more than balanced by an enduring optimism and a deep love for her Craig, that survives, no matter the circumstances. You'll be glad you took the journey with her.

True Love knows No Bounds . . . . . ."
This is a beautiful memoir of a true love story. In it the
author shares the tale of her real life courtship and marriage, and then the
subsequent devastation and eventual healing after losing her husband. Through
experiences that many of us have, but don't always recognize for what they are,
she discovers that her soul mate is still by her side and always will be. A
heartfelt, uplifting story! Brenda Marks
