Amatuzio sees dead people. Indeed, as an anatomic, forensic, and clinical pathologist and coroner for several counties in Minnesota and Wisconsin, she sees them every day. They also see her and sometimes even speak to her through their families and other loved ones. In this slim yet powerful account, Amatuzio testifies, from her working experience, to the ethereal vastness that sometimes glimmers at us from the other side. Although she can’t “cure” the survivors she encounters of what ails them, she can offer solace and comfort in what are often their most difficult hours. Covering incidents from the spiritual connection Amatuzio made with her very first terminal patient to the resurrection of her deceased secretary’s peonies, these heartfelt true stories make worthy reading.
