Midwest Book Review   


  “An inspiring literary work with a deeper understanding of the connection to the spirit that carries us through life.” Amazon five star reviewer.


“Spirit Matters is an inspiring journey of healing and self transformation coming straight from the heart. Pallamary's search for truth is not only a page turner, it is energized with a blue print for evolution. Bravo!”

Amazon five star reviewer.

“Spirit touches us in every moment of our existence; only most of us are caught up in the dramas that we have created in our lives, blinding us to a reality far greater than anything we can imagine with our rational minds,” says Pallamary. “It is simply a matter of awareness.”
