In this extraordinary true story, parapsychology expert Nancy Lee Canfield reveals how her early years shaped and prepared her for a lifetime of studying the paranormal. A Rose for My Mother chronicles Canfield's turbulent childhood in and out of foster homes and orphanages before the age of thirteen, her early marriage at seventeen, and her awakening to paranormal phenomena. A Rose for My Mother is an intriguing blend of memoir and the study of parapsychology. 

Do you believe in the paranormal?  Do you think some people are more 'sensitive' than others? 
I have absolutely no experience with the paranormal. I've never seen anything or heard anything that lets me know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it exits. However that doesn't stop me from being fascinated on the subject. That is one of the reasons I decided to read this book. However this book is much more than a woman's experience with the paranormal. This book is about a woman's survival.  There were parts of this memoir that are heart wrenching. Literally. Sometimes it was very hard to read. But if Nancy Lee Canfield can live through her experiences, I should be able to read about them.  She lays her story all on the table for us. The good, the bad and the ugly. She starts with her earliest memories of her childhood and takes us through to her adult hood.  She has included details that I'm sure were hard for her to write about.  Nancy Lee Canfiield survived by strength, faith and persevering.  She also documents her earliest paranormal experiences and how she became attuned to the paranormal world. I found this entire book interesting. I am thankful to Nancy Lee Canfield for sharing her experiences and wisdom with the world.
