A message of comfort for grieving readers, this remarkable story recounts a mother's supernatural contact with a son who perished on a Flanders battlefield during World War I. Its simple message, as expressed in one of the soldier's communications, is that "There is no death. Life goes on without hindrance or handicap. The one thing that troubles the men who come here is the fact that the ones that loved them are in agony."
