When Ghosts Speak:
Understanding the World of Earthbound Spirits

by Mary Ann Winkowski

      The spirit world is alive with an unlimited supply of paranormal activity.  There you will find beings that are trapped between the living world and the beyond.  They walk the earth as if they are still alive; their existence deserves to be explored.

A fascinating journey can be found throughout the pages of When Ghosts Speak: Understanding the World of Earthbound Spirits, as Mary Ann Winkowski shares her own experience of how she is able to see the undead.  As a young child she knew there was something different about herself.  It was not until her grandmother figured out Mary had the ability to see spirits that her true purpose in life was revealed.  As she grew into an adult, her skills were kept sharpened by her work as a paranormal investigator.  Her ability allowed her to solve the toughest murder cases.  Her popularity grew to such an extreme high that the hit CBS drama, The Ghost Whisper, was centered on events that occurred in her life.

When Ghosts Speak: Understanding the World of Earthbound Spirits provides a very eye opening look at the spirit world.  It is broken into three separate sections.  The first section relates how the author discovered she had the ability to see earthbound spirits.  The second section educates the readers on how to understand these spirits as they find their way into our lives.  The last section tells how to learn to deal with ghosts. It also gives in-depth guidance on how to prevent or remove a spirit from your life.

From page one I was literally swept away at all that I discovered in When Ghosts Speak: Understanding the World of Earthbound Spirits.  I have always felt that paranormal events occur in everyone’s life.  One fall day last year I received my own paranormal encounter.  It occurred on a trip I made to Cades Cove in the Great Smokey Mountains in Tennessee.  Upon entering an abandoned shed, I felt an immediate temperature drop.  Pictures that I took in that establishment that day clearly show that I was not alone, for two spirits are clearly visible.  This encounter has heightened my interest in the paranormal world.  After reading When Ghosts Speak: Understanding the World of Earthbound Spirits I gained a better appreciation for the unknown spirits.  This author has gained a true, devoted fan.  This book is the type of book to read with an open mind. What you discover will truly amaze you.  Highly recommended.
