The Gift : The Story of an Ordinary Woman's Extraordinary Power Paperback
by Mia Dolan
The extraordinary life story of psychic and clairvoyant, Mia Dolan, the new Betty Shine.
Contents * Mia Dolan is one of the UK's most eminent and extraordinary psychics whose work has taken her from private readings to 'ghostbusting' to psychic demonstrations in front of hundreds of people.
Her abilities have made her one of the most sought-after psychics in the country. * An ordinary woman brought up in a working-class family on the Isle of Sheppey, she had her first out-of-body experience at the age of 12 when she was sexually assaulted by a local teenager.
At the age of 22 her spirit guide began to talk to her and showed her how to use her clairvoyance as well providing fascinating insights into the nature of the Afterlife. * Mia's life has been touched by tragic experiences including when she foresaw the murder of her own brother and when her son died while still only a teenager. * In The Gift Mia describes how her psychic ability developed, and the more dramatic readings that she has given including the man who came to ask her where his missing wife was - she knew instantly that she was dead, and the body was later found exactly as Mia described. The book recounts her activities as a 'ghostbuster' and exorcist, and includes stories of the haunted Drury Lane Theatre in London, a haunted theme park, and sightings of earth-bound spirits - both good and bad. * 'I want people to know there is more to life than what we call reality, more than what we can see - and it is not as far beyond our reach as we imagine.
It is ordinary, everyday, here and now, in this minute. And it is magical, a gift.'

Review by SmithSJ01
This was truly awful! I really enjoy misery memoirs, I find them fascinating but this was the worst one so far! The writing was disjointed and unbelievable. One second we having a dodgy relationship and the next there's dogs flying through the air. No way! The story of her gift takes second fiddle to her talking about her life. Which was dreadful but not fully discussed. The book is jumpy and expects the reader to believe too much. I do believe in tarot cards but I don't believe in how she expressed it. For example when she asks her mother to scan her son - hmmm. Suddenly she has this wonderful gift that she never knew about before and knew how to used it? Yes, well. I feel Mia Dolan has tried to capture too many audiences with this book and may not succeed in pleasing any.
