An engrossing, entertaining and emotional account of one woman's adventures in Lily Dale, the town that speaks to the beyond.
Twenty thousand visitors a year travel to Lily Dale, the birthplace of Spiritualism and the oldest and largest community of Spiritualists in the world. They come to this little Victorian village in upstate New York to consult the town's mediums, who can pull dead relatives from the beyond, predict the future, and provide healing and solace.
'The Spirits Of Lily Dale' delights, entertains and pulls at the heart strings, as Christine Wicker, who came prepared to scoff, stays to learn her own lessons about the limits and possibilities of what humans can know. Through the extraordinary stories of men and women in search of hope and peace, as well as her own discoveries, Christine Wicker has woven a gripping tale. Sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, often tender, and ultimately profound, 'The Spirits Of Lily Dale' is a moving portrait of love, loss and belief.
