Angel Animals Book of Inspiration: Divine Messengers of Wisdom and Compassion

Allen and Linda Anderson, New World Library, Novato, CA, 2009

A dear friend recently dreamt that her beloved cat, Max, came to say good-bye to her. His visit was so powerful and filled with such meaningful symbolism that she sobbed upon waking. Just like the true accounts in Angel Animals Book of inspiration: Divine Messengers of Wisdom and Compassion, my friend's dream would come as no surprise to Allen and Linda Anderson. They know spiritual messengers from beyond come in the form of kitties like Max. But they also take the form of rabbits, dogs, horses, iguanas, dolphins and all other "fury, fuzzy, flowing and flying creatures." Animal companions teach gentle lessons to their human families. They provide comfort, give love and bond deeply. Often, as seen in these stories, animal friends have the power to change lives. This collection of inspiring tales (tails? groan!) sends the lasting message that animals are angels on Earth and when they leave this plane "love lives on."
