With an introduction by Andrew O’Hagan

When I think about her now, which is most of the time, it’s like rewinding a silent film in my head: I see the crucial scenes in our lives together. But what I can’t hear is her voice in my head, and that silence is driving me crazy. After her sister Ruth’s death from breast cancer in September 1997, Justine Picardie was desperate to speak to her again, to hear her voice, to find something – anything – that might fill the space she had left behind.

Over the course of the next year, Justine’s search for Ruth lead her into the underworld of spiritualism, through a series of encounters with mediums and psychics who believe that we can communicate with those we have lost. If the Spirit Moves You is Justine’s remarkable story about her search for the afterlife in an age of reason, scepticism and science. Powerfully moving, both heart-breaking and funny, it is an extraordinary classic about the exhausting journey of grief and the enduring power of love.
