So when their boy Russell died before his 10th birthday, his parents Gwen and Alfie, were both devastated.
Finding a lack of support from Orthodoxy, Gwen began her own Spiritual search and what she found rocked her family’s world…
In her first book entitled ‘Russell’, Gwen Byrne related the painful loss of her young son and her extensive search for the truth of his survival after death.
Gwen never really believed that Russell was gone for good and it soon became clear, that Russell was not content to stay silent either.
Visiting the best Mediums in the country, Gwen found that Russell was a natural communicator - but he had more than just comforting words of love to share, Russell seemed to have a mission of his own...
Then the miracle came - through the unique phenomena of Physical Mediumship, Russell was eventually able to materialise in solid form and he wanted to see his parents again.
Russell also had a message…he wanted his mother’s help to reunite other bereaved parents with their ‘dead’ children.
Now 20 years after the publication of ‘Russell’ the sequel is finally here…
‘The Russell Connection’ is more than a biography - Gwen Byrne shares the experiences of a lifetime and how one little boy in the Afterlife found his mother and father again.
Included, are chapters written by other bereaved parents, who describe their own pain - yet through hope and the proof that their children had not gone, they found the truth…
that their children do live on and can communicate.
Read how, through the rare Physical Mediumship of Rita Goold, Russell was able to walk and talk again - and for the first time in print, Gwen shares transcripts from some of the original audio recordings from these regular reunions - where Russell’s unique humour, love of music and personality shine through.
The work of other Mediums, like Stewart Alexander, Helen Duncan and Tony Stockwell are also highlighted as we learn much more about the process of Spirit communication.
Finally, the evolving soul of Russell Byrne inspires us all with his wisdom and knowledge, gained from many years in the Spirit World. He talks about what he’s learned, his hopes for the future and how we can all communicate with our loved ones.
Together, after almost 50 years of study, both ‘Russell’ and ‘The Russell Connection' stand as a testament to the continuation of Love and survival after physical death.
So is there is another world beyond this one ? Gwen Byrne has certainly had her proof - as have many others.
And as Russell says, shouldn’t we all learn about the place we are going to - before we get there ? After all, it’s the home we all come from and ultimately, all return to…
The Russell Connection - 416 pages and 20 photos & illustrations.
