In this best-selling memoir, Marla Frees reveals her extraordinary life journey from a small-town girl in a troubled family to a stage and TV actress and ultimately one of the country’s most respected transformational psychic mediums. Her tales of a harrowing childhood, burgeoning career in Hollywood, and astounding psychic and spiritual adventures along the way reveal the resilience and heights of the human spirit. U.S. military psychic spies, homicide cases, messages from the other side, spiritual healing - Marla Frees was given a gift from “Spirit” that she uses to help others.

In this audio edition, Marla delivers her narrative as only she can, reliving all the drama and humor of her life in her inimitable, dynamic voice.

An extraordinary journey of love and forgiveness

From the very beginning of the book I connected with Marla. Her voice and energy drew me in and I was in for an amazing ride. What an extraordinary life of love, pain, joy, acceptance, compassion, hope, and forgiveness. Marla makes you think, cry, laugh, and question life, and the afterlife. She has an exceptional gift as a storyteller, and what stories she tells! Sometimes I felt she was talking to me and I caught myself talking back at her, telling her you are crazy for going to that trip! I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It is raw, honest, tragic, and funny. As I said, it is an amazing ride. Thank you Marla for sharing your life with the world and keeping it real and humorous. You are truly extraordinary.

Amazing!

This book is incredible, many on the journey or should I say the adventure of life will find themselves in this book. It is brilliantly written, beautifully read and the different people given a their own animation, as opposed to a monotone. Love went into this book and it is obvious from the first chapter.

Vulnerable account of pain turned into purpose!

Wow.This book has just opened an entire new world for me and the trajectory of my life. I don't know how, but I can sense I will be able to use this book as a milestone in my life when I look back to the time I read it. My biggest takeaway was the absolute humility and realness of the author. The world needs more women who model such authenticity!I just want to emulate her!! Sharing her own abuse as a child with such vulnerability was so brave. She takes you on a journey of her skepticism through each new spiritual experience she encounters, and all the while, it felt like it was reflecting my OWN skepticism. Yet in the end as she came to form her beliefs, and find her truth, so did I! ❤️‍🔥

Must Listen!

Marla's story is inspiring and relatable. I read the book when it first came out several years ago and decided to listen to it because it's read by the author. Hearing Marla read her story added a dynamic that I had not picked up on from reading it. I loved hearing Marla's voice, like hearing your best friend tell you the most exciting adventure of a story. It felt like I was right there with Marla, experiencing each moment just as she had. Worth your time and the money!

weird reaction

It was a good listen/read. I became emotional in the middle beginning in chapter 13. No idea why. it must have tapped into something.

Secret of Life

Marla Frees has written an amazing, fascinating book. She has shown us “The Secret of Life”; no matter what happens to you, you can make your life happy, helpful, and productive. To use a cliché, she has turned her lemons into delicious, delectable, soothing, cooling, healthy lemonade. She has shown us it is our individual choice to make what we will of our lives, and she has chosen well. Give yourself a present (you deserve it) and buy Marla’s book and/or listen to the Audible version. It is a joy to listen to Marla read her own words. Few authors do it so well. Thank you, Marla, for this gift to us, you are changing many lives for the better.

LOVE

Beautifully written. Her story will keep you on the edge of your seat. I was sad that it ended. Thank you Marla for sharing your story that so many of us can relate too. It helps me forgive the pain my Mother put my sister and I through.

Fantastic!

Finished this in a few short days as Marla’s provocative writing and riveting storytelling made it easy! She shares intimately & openly her path and how she discovered her gift of being a psychic medium. I was touched by her ability to be raw with personal details. It was a “hard to put down book” as I didn’t want to miss what happened “next” in her adventures & discoveries! I found it to be fascinating and inspiring. Thanks Marla ❤️

OK, Not Great

I listened to the end but the last 3 hours were a real slog.

An inspiring human

I’m not entirely sure what I was expecting from this book. I’ve had my own personal experience of a psychic reading which was so incredibly accurate, it left me fascinated by people with this gift. So I wanted to know more about people with this ability.
Her spiritual journey is an interesting one, her childhood trauma is horrendous and uncomfortable to hear. Consequently her ability to move forward with her life and her process for forgiveness is admirable and I think that anyone who has experienced abuse and struggles to live without it destroying them, and wants to understand and make peace with it, would benefit from this book.

Touching and uplifting!

A touching and an inspiring story of the writer's life path. It inspires to look within oneself and search to hear your inner voice. It inspires that life can unfold in so many interesting ways, if only you wish to be more in tune with yourself and trust it. It inspires to be lighter and to be more brave and willing to explore what's out there. Thank you Marla for sharing your story!

Wonderful

A brilliant insight into Marla and her life and work. Sometimes heartwarming, sometimes funny and sometimes shocking. She narrates it so well, too.
