“Can you feel the love in the room? Follow it, dear o≠ you are dying.” These words were spoken to Nanette as she passed over to the other side.

Gina Ravenswood has lived her life in the pursuit of helping others understand theirs. A medium by calling and trade, she enjoys a complicated relationship with death and what follows. When her dear friend, Nannette, was dying of cancer, Gina was at her side. That night, as Nannette prepared to take her last breath, her friend was there. But this was not the end for these two friends; it was the start of an extraordinary journey they would share—to death and beyond. Gina was awestruck and comforted by the soothing guidance of the angelic presence who came to lead Nannette to her new experience.

This is the true story of that remarkable friendship and the profound journey they shared.

A few years after her death, Nannette reappeared to Gina, and they enjoyed many colourful conversations. Together, Gina, Nannette, and the spirit guides opened up a new dimension of love and understanding. Nannette was able to share some astonishing insight into what happens after we die, bringing great comfort and peace to the friend she left behind on Earth.

If you’ve ever wondered what might happen in the afterlife, Shaking Hands with Love seeks to provide an answer. Gina’s experiences have helped her to face death with great optimism, hope, and love.

Wow! What an interesting adventure this author has had. What stood out to me was her friend dying of cancer, yet she lived a spiritual life and did all the right things, and still ended up getting cancer. This book has amazing, interesting, answers over WHY. The explanations about the other side make the afterlife real. I have lost many loved ones and it has given me the inspiration and confidence to go ahead and try to send messages to them and open up to receiving messages from them. The authors’ experiences with love I could identify with. When I left my last relationship I always questioned whether it was my destiny. After reading this I now understand separating was the right thing to do. Now I can go forward with no guilt.
Thank you Gina for writing this book, to me it is a ‘small book with a big heart’.

Having burdened myself with guilt, from my strict, indoctrinated, religious background, what a great comfort and relief to read Shaking Hands with Love. Here I discover there is no great God being out there judging me, or imposing illness and suffering on me as a penance for all my past actions and failings. Instead, in this little book, I find simple, clear understandings of how we are actually imposing this on ourselves and others, and, most importantly, how we can easily free ourselves of this burden of guilt.
For over twenty-five years I have searched for answers to the eternal question, “Why am I here?” I have read many Inspirational and Self Help books, but I have never come across one, until now, where the author, candidly and honestly expounds her failings and shortcomings, weaving them into a true memoir with such interesting and fascinating scenarios that we can identify with, and so gain benefit.
If you know of someone burdened with the sense of loss for a loved one through cancer, or struggling with broken relationships, or just plain full of fear from guilt―and you’re having difficulty providing solace―then Shaking Hands with Love is the perfect gift: it would do it for you.
I highly recommend it.
