Animal Lover - One Woman's Fascinating Journey to Uncover Spiritual Purpose of Pets - Book Review

I had the pleasure of meeting Anne Marie at BlogPaws at the CWA session.  We were both there as struggling authors, and when she inquired about how to request book reviews from others I immediately raised my hand and told her I would do a review. (Struggling authors need to stick together!) I strongly believe that some people have the gift of mediumship and have true psychic abilities and I was hoping that she fell into this category.  At the end of the session when she handed me her book, she gave me a message that I really needed to hear that day, at that precise moment.  I knew then that she had a gift and I couldn’t wait to read her book.  

“Animal Lover” is the autobiographical account of how Anne Marie discovered and refined her intuitive abilities.  It details her life of growing up on a farm in rural Illinois and the many events (most involving animals) that shaped her into the person she is today.  This is a no holds barred story and Anne details many accounts with raw honesty (both past and present).  It should be noted that at times it can be emotional and difficult to read as Anne Marie tells the reader about different cases she has worked on with the unfortunate truth of not all of them having a happy ending.  

Anne Marie discusses the many ways she helps her clients, ranging from lost and stolen pets, behavior problems, and helping people through the grieving process.  At the end of the book there are appendices that people can use for different situations.  I particularly like the one on clearing energy, which I believe is important to do on a regular basis. 

From the publisher: “Animal Lover is a fascinating look at how animals REALLY think and feel. If you are an animal lover, you will see yourself reflected in these pages. Animal Lover is filled with actual events between humans and their pets. It contains the five major reasons a pet psychic is called, with actual situations in each. It also is interlaced with flashbacks of the author’s own life, that molded her connection with the Universe, humans and animals. Animal lover reveals that the love shared with our pets is everlasting, existing far beyond the physical realm. Animals come to teach us, protect us, make us laugh, give us companionship, among other things. They do not come randomly into our lives. After you reading Animal Lover, you will believe in Magic again.” 

You can purchase Animal Lover at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.  You can find Anne Marie on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and on her website
