    Book details

This is the moving story of a young girl battling leukemia who realizes she is going to die. She receives hope and comfort through nightly conversations with her favourite doll, Angel, who helps her to embrace a new perspective on dying, and the possibility that consciousness could survive after death. Her fear of death is ultimately lifted by her new-found spiritual wisdom and by the account of a near-death experience told to her by a young companion. Evelyn Elsaesser-Valarino's extensive knowledge of near-death experiences informs this astonishing book. It will be of great benefit and comfort to those facing their own death, or for parents and carers of those with serious illnesses. It will also enrich anyone who is reflecting on this essential aspect of life.

'I was very moved by the story's emotional power... one of the best accounts of near-death experience I've come across.' -- Dr Kenneth Ring, University of Connecticut'One of the few books one can put into the hands of a child facing a life-threatening illness.' -- Dr Allan Kellehear, La Trobe University

    This book came to me, as sometime happens, as a totally unexpected surprise gift from the ledgendary "library angel". I took it with me for "light reading" on a train to a long weekend holiday. After the first few pages I found myself totally engrossed, and more suprisingly, quiet moved - occasionally to the edge of tears.I would recomend this book for anyone who has lost, or will lose, someone deeply loved - in other words I would recommend it for everyone.A reader in London

    There have been many books written on near-death experience but they have always dealt with it in a very objective manner. Evelyn Elsaesser-Valarino has written a fictionalised account of a young girl battling with leukaemia and how she finds solace in the experiences of another child also facing death. Evelyn applies all her knowledge of real NDEs to weave a moving and ultimately uplifting story. I will guarantee that sections of this book will have you in tears but you will come out of it understanding in a very personal way exactly what the NDE is all about.

    Talking with Angel is an extraordinary book. Most of us spend most of our lives dealing with mundane small issues and indulging in small talk. The authors have found a fascinating way of forcing us to ponder a variety of bigger questions by discussing the very big questions of life and death. Talking with Angel is not just a novel distracting us from our normal world it is an emotional experience that will excite and stimulate the reader so that they have something to say on the rare occasions when they take part in "Big Talk".
