A journey that will compel readers to view life after death in a completely different way.
Where - do our loved ones go - After they die? This is the question that has traversed the universe for centuries and is considered one of life’s greatest mysteries. While many of the world’s renowned philosophers, scientists, theorists, doctors, and great mystics endorsed the existence of the afterlife, no one book has been available to explore it all, until now.
Mariel Forde Clarke asserts that whether you believe in God or heaven, you can be comforted by the sense that an afterlife exists beyond the realm of one's physical comprehension. Drawing on the findings of patients who have had near-death experiences and visions, and on those of renowned scientists and doctors, Clarke helps the reader chart the journey of the soul and navigate their grief.

I found this book an interesting read. The topic of life after death has always intrigued me. I really enjoyed this book. Thank you.
This book goes in depth with stories from people who have come close to death. I enjoyed reading it and appreciate that the author offered so much hope for those of us who have recently lost a loved one.
I enjoyed this book and in particular the first half I found particularly interesting and gives a good overview of life after death and covers the most popular beliefs in the afterlife. If you are quite new to spirituality or haven't looked into the afterlife yet then this book delivers all you need to know. The second half of the book deals with grief, suicide and living with the loss of a loved one. I did find this part a little slower but I feel it would be of a benefit for those suffering from grief. Sometimes in the book I felt I was being lectured to with a religious tint which I didn't enjoy much. For me less religion in the book would have improved it. A good book, worthy of sitting down and enjoying.
Simply fantastic. The first book I have read that touched on the afterlife - poignant to me since losing my brother recently - and it was just wonderful. Well written, easy reading, I found myself having to slow down and savor it. Thank you so much for sharing your gift and experiences!
Where After Soulful information, clearly researched & lived experiences. “Where after” is not a book to be read once and put on a shelf. I appreciated the opportunity to read, the threads of Mariel Forde Clarke's book have been helpful to me as recent as today, having just attended a funeral, many parts of her book remain spinning in my head while I process various wisdom’s and beliefs. “Where after “ has found a spot on my nightstand to re-read, reflect on.
I am always a little skeptical when reading books about the afterlife. I am a believer, but feel many books merely regurgitate what's been said before. But not this book. Mariel uses her experiences as a spirit midwife and knowledge she has gained from thorough research to share her perspective on the afterlife. I have done lots of reading on this topic and was amazed at all the new insights and resources Mariel was able to share.. I really enjoyed this book and was more enlightened for having read it. My thanks to Mariel Forde Clarke, the publisher and to NetGallery for allowing me to read this advanced copy.
This is an excellent book which contains knowledge drawn from many resources. The author shares her own personal experiences with accompanying people on their final journey at the end of life, and these stories were very touching. Many books are listed by name and the contents are described so the reader can seek further information if they are so inclined. Every topic is covered from near-death-experiences and out-of-body-experiences to reincarnation, suicide, and much more! I strongly recommend this book to those who have lost a loved one or are simply pondering the afterlife and what it will be like.
Reading this interesting book was like being with a knowledgeable friend taking you by the hand into the realm of NDE, grief, past life regression and the afterlife. Mariel supports her findings with testimonials, from doctors, surgeons, nurses and with the consent of her patients, their personal stories. There is no wafffle is this book, it is authentically written and was easy to read on to the next chapter, then the next. I would recommend this supportive book to anyone: with a curiosity for the unknown, grieving or anyone wanting to live a more meaningful life. The quotes sprinkled throughout the chapters were appropriately placed and added value and substance to that particular sub-topic. I hope you enjoyed this book. I believe it has positively added to wealth of knowledge in the public arena in this field and that it will aid in the healing of many cultures around the world. I look forward to its formal publication, so I can recommend to others and to any follow-up work by Mariel Forde Clarke. I hope her website will be updated to display her current and future offerings like book tours (near Hertfordshire, UK) or podcasts etc.
I read this in a day. Having recently lost a loved one it seemed that I was meant to read this book. Whilst it is titled ‘Where After - where do our loved ones goes after they die’ this is not just a gathering of evidence for an afterlife. That is covered very convincingly in here. There is a very detailed gathering of evidence for near death experiences, out of body experiences, reincarnation and after death communication which is very convincing. Although there was little new to me in this section. This book is more a gentle guide through the grieving process and offers plenty of comfort, reassurance and self help strategies to cope with a loss. The book is said to be split into three parts. Personally, I think it should have been divided into four. The first is described as ‘Fear of Death’. This covers evidence for the existence of the soul and of an afterlife. The second section is ‘Navigating up chartered waters of grief’. This is very helpful if you have lost a loved one or want to help someone who has had a loss. Specialist chapters cover subjects such as how to help children to grieve or how to deal with a suicide. Also various exercises are given to help you and others move through the process of grief. The third chapter covers ‘Love and Forgiveness - keys to inner peace and freedom’ . This chapter gives some amazing examples, which I was already familiar with of people who have found inner peace by forgiving those who have harmed them or caused them severe distress in the past. It also covers self forgiveness and how to gain acceptance of a loss. Again exercises are given to help achieve this. This also includes a very moving meditation, in which It helps guide you to reconnect with a lost loved one. I felt this was so important it should really be given a chapter heading of its own as it is so cathartic and healing. All in all I thought this was a very well written, researched book which came to me just when I needed it, although I found the title a little misleading. This is far more than just being a book about evidence for an afterlife.
Do our loved ones go on to have a beautiful existence or something else? This book looks at the thoughts that all of us have or will have if we lose someone we care about. Or wonder what will happen to us at death.Engaging and uplifting this book gives a thoughtful and descriptive story that takes the subject to a new level. I felt better after reading this and also lookf forward to seeing my loved ones again.
