BECAUSE OF YOU, I AM
A Spiritual Quest With Man’s Best Friend

Every now and again, something comes along in a person’s life that shakes the very foundation of what they believe. Because of You, I Am is an exploration into the nature of the spiritual world.

“Ultimately, in my search I discovered that while the searing pain of grief tests our ability to endure, death is by no means an enemy.  In understanding death, I came to an awareness of my own spiritual essence in the most profound ways.”

“The enthusiasm and heart-felt presence in Mary Ann’s words are nothing short of amazing. She captures the essence of the true animal human bond with her endearing story. This book will touch your heart and soul.”

“Engaging as a mystery novel, the author conveys with moving intensity her journey of discovery about the nature of life and death found through love for her dog, Charlie. The pages are full of insights into how animal communication works and how animals help to heal us with their love and also by reflecting our challenges to raise our self-awareness. Deep spiritual truths emerge from her quest for understanding Charlie’s death and the nature of life and spiritual essence. Among all the books written about the impact of animals’ lives and deaths on their people, this stands as a special gem of richness and depth.”
