Secrets of the Monarch: What the Dead Can Teach Us about Living a Better Lifeby Allison Dubois
Synopses & Reviews
In her newest book, Allison DuBois explains that the lives of people aren't much different than those of monarch butterflies—that we wouldn't be the people we are, make the choices we do, and, in essence, live the lives we lead without the friends and family members that came before us and have passed over to the other side.
If you want to understand life, you must understand death. In Secrets of the Monarch, DuBois shows how communicating with the dead has taught her important lessons about life and how listeners can apply those principles to their own lives.
Although we are all products of our predecessors, DuBois stresses that every person's life is part of a bigger story, stretching past family and friends to neighbors, community members, and society as a whole. By making the most of your life now, DuBois says, you can positively affect that story. It is your legacy to pass the fire in your eyes and heart to your children, your siblings' children, and your friends' children.
After all, if you already know that the story will end, why not make the content a true masterpiece?

About the Author
Allison Dubois's unique story, the inspiration for the hit NBC TV series "Medium, " started during her senior year at Arizona State University while she was interning at the D.A.'s office. Soon after, researchers at the University of Arizona validated her ability through a series of tests. Allison continues to support research as a medium, as a member of the Veritas Research Program Mediums Committee, and as a member of the Forever Family Foundation's Medium Advisory Board. In her short career, Allison has conducted over 1,200 personal readings. Allison donates her time to missing-persons and criminal cases for agencies across the country.
