My Journey with the Angels by Patricia Buckley

My Journey with the Angels is a heart wrenching memoir of Patricia’s life growing up in a family where poverty and violence were daily realities. She knew from an early age that she could see angels and spirits but she was discouraged from talking about her gift, even beaten on occasion. Patricia has paid dearly for the gift she has, as a teenager her family were convinced that she was unstable and she spent time in a mental institution. She felt that in order to survive she would have to pretend that she no longer saw angels and she did her best to suppress her ability. She continued to suffer however, beaten by her partner and sleeping on the streets she finally found friendship and met the man who became her husband. Patricia began to heal her life and found great joy in motherhood. However she continued to suffer ill health until she finally accepted her gift and allowed her own spirit to flourish. Reading this memoir is like sitting down for a cup of tea and a chat with the author. Patricia has obviously gained a great deal from telling her story and I am sure that others will also benefit from this inspiring and moving account.
