Publisher's Summary

At the age of 73, New York Times best-selling author Sylvia Browne is ready to tell the whole story of her extraordinary life. In Psychic, we meet the woman behind the public figure: from the child receiving her first visits from the spirit world to the teenager doubting her own sanity; from the new mother living through staggering highs and lows to the burgeoning celebrity, and, ultimately, the successful, happily married woman she is today. Filled with never-before-told stories and otherworldly encounters, Psychic is a riveting account of how Sylvia Shoemaker, a traditional girl from Missouri, became world-famous psychic Sylvia Browne.
Nothing is off-limits. Sylvia 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, including her relatively recent discovery that she'd suddenly gone blind in one eye. And then there is the greatest surprise of all: Sylvia tells how, once she had reached her 70s, and believed her romantic life was over, the real Mr. Right finally - impossibly - showed up.
While the press has freely, often bitterly, weighed in on Sylvia's most painful stories, she has remained quiet...until now. Unlike any other book Sylvia has written, Psychic reaches deep beneath the surface of her life, including professional and personal experiences that she is sharing publicly for the first time. With candor, warmth, and a great deal of 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.

Great author, fascinating story, terrific narrator

I have either read or listened to a few of Sylvia's books, and this is definitely my new favorite! I have a brand-new level of respect and love for Sylvia - all that she has been through, and she is still looking out for other people, caring for them, loving them, forgiving those who need it (even the former husband who forced her into bankruptcy and caused her public humiliation!)

I don't know that I could be as gracious - but then, after reading her book, I doubt I could live up to most of her humanitarian work and loving people. From the love and care given to the little girl who's mother basically abandoned her, leaving her in Sylvia's care - and Sylvia took her in and loved her and raised her as her own, to her strength in dealing with (and leaving) an abusive husband as soon as she saw even an inkling of a hint that he might start abusing their children, Sylvia has endured more hardships than many ever will, and come through it all with a shining, loving spirit, and a heart that loves God and desires to help her fellow man reach their full potential. I never knew she was a school teacher and found that really interesting - and I bet she was a great one!

The book is beautifully written, with humor, style, and grace; the story completely engrossing (I listened to the entire 8-hour book in 2 days). And although I really do like to listen to Sylvia read her own books (I love her low, gravelly voice that sounds much like my own - only better! LOL!), the narrator did a fantastic job, reading with great expression and very much in the same style that Sylvia would have read it herself - sometimes I would forget that I wasn't actually listening to Sylvia herself! Hillary Huber was really a perfect choice for narrator, if we must listen to someone other than Sylvia herself.

I know I'll be listening to this one again, and it has become an instant top-of-the-list favorite in my Audible collection!

very disappointed

What disappointed you about Psychic?

I expected a great deal more about her work with the police and actual stories of her work.and interesting readings

What was most disappointing about Sylvia Browne’s story?

more about her and less about her craft...really not happy I had always loved seeing her on tv and this really disappointed me

Would you be willing to try another one of Hillary Huber’s performances?

its not about the narration

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Psychic?

all of it

Any additional comments?

if you are expecting to get insight into her craft and how she came to use it and stories about her work law enforcement and people she read.....its not here
