NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A remarkable cat. A special gift. A life-changing journey. They thought he was just a cat. When Oscar arrived at the Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Rhode Island he was a cute little guy with attitude. He loved to stretch out in a puddle of sunlight and chase his tail until he was dizzy. Occasionally he consented to a scratch behind the ears, but only when it suited him. In other words, he was a typical cat. Or so it seemed. It wasn't long before Oscar had created something of a stir. Apparently, this ordinary cat possesses an extraordinary gift: he knows instinctively when the end of life is near. Oscar is a welcome distraction for the residents of Steere House, many of whom are living with Alzheimer's. But he never spends much time with them--until they are in their last hours. Then, as if this were his job, Oscar strides purposely into a patient's room, curls up on the bed, and begins his vigil. Oscar provides comfort and companionship when people need him most. And his presence lets caregivers and loved ones know that it's time to say good-bye. Oscar's gift is a tender mercy. He teaches by example: embracing moments of life that so many of us shy away from. Making Rounds with Oscar is the story of an unusual cat, the patients he serves, their caregivers, and of one doctor who learned how to listen. Heartfelt, inspiring, and full of humor and pathos, this book allows readers to take a walk into a world rarely seen from the outside, a world we often misunderstand.

Divinely Touched is a story of personal transformation. It chronicles Mary’s spiritual awakening, how she was divinely saved, led, and transformed. From the depths of depression, from battles with physical ailments for which the medical profession had no explanations, from being led into worlds she never knew existed, she survived being taken to the underworld. She was guided and healed by light workers, shamans, and avatars from this world and the spirit dimension and led on a journey of personal, physical, mental, and spiritual healing. Mary’s experience, like that of a caterpillar when transformed into a beautiful butterfly, is one that will inspire, enlighten, and transform your life as well. Dr. Dave uses science, research, and “knowledge of the ages” to explain what Mary experienced and open worlds to the reader that they may never have imagined. Divinely Touched: Transform Your Life can, in fact, do just that. “With painstaking detail, Mary describes her descent into darkness and her triumphant return. Like Margaret Starbird, in The Goddess in the Gospels, who also has a spiritual awakening that took her into the realms of psychosis, Mary describes a similar personal descent into darkness before bursting forth into spiritual awareness. Inside you will find a compelling story that may help you or someone you love.” —Maureen St. Germain, author of Beyond the Flower of Life & You Are the Genie in the Bottle “The world is waiting for this powerful story of good vs. evil. Mary’s story is amazing, compelling, eye-opening, and courageous. Her faith has carried her through the darkness into the light. She is God’s instrument and truly a living expression of divine light flowing forth into the world. Divinely Touched is a must-read, and you won’t want to put it down. It will blow your mind!” —Pat Hastings, Author of Simply a Woman of Faith: How to Live in Spiritual Power and Transform Your Life “Mary’s amazing story will capture your interest and touch your heart. You will be inspired to move forward on your own journey of awakening.” —Andrew Oser, author of How Alternation Can Change Your Life; Finding the Rhythms of Health and Happiness “Divinely Touched is a wonderful book that documents an impassioned and heartfelt account of the pitfalls and triumphs of personal awakening.” —Dr. Michael Sharp, author of The Great Awakening, The Book of Light, The Book of Love, The Dossier of Ascension
