If the Spirit Moves You

Love and Life After Death

Justine Picardie

In September 1997 Justine Picardie’s sister, Ruth, died of breast cancer. In this remarkable book, Justine tells the story of life after death – a year in her own life after Ruth’s death; and of a search for the afterlife in the age of reason, of scepticism, of science. It tells of the yearning for a voice amongst the silence, and of how we fill the space that appears when someone dies; or how the space fills itself.
