At the age of seventy-three, New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Browne is ready to reveal the woman behind the public figure: from the teenager doubting her own sanity to the new mother living through staggering highs and lows; from the burgeoning celebrity to the successful, happily married woman she is today. Filled with never-before-told stories, Psychic is a riveting account of how Sylvia Shoemaker, a traditional girl from Missouri, became world-famous psychic Sylvia Browne.
Nothing is off-limits. She tells the little-known truths behind her three failed marriages-including physical abuse, bankruptcy, and legal troubles-and the financial and emotional damage they wreaked. She revisits her personal demons and describes her physical challenges. While the press has freely, often bitterly, weighed in on Sylvia's most painful stories, she has remained quiet-until now. With candor, warmth, and humor, Sylvia Browne has written the singularly captivating tale of a life lived in two worlds, filled equally with harsh earthly realities and mesmerizing spiritual insights.
