Sukey Forbes - The Angel in My Pocket

A grieving mother draws on her storied heritage to find her daughter in the afterlife.
When Sukey Forbes lost her six-year-old daughter, Charlotte, to a rare genetic disorder, she felt as if her life had shattered irreparably. As the scion of two distinguished New England families, Forbes was raised in a rarefied—if eccentric—life of privilege. Yet, Forbes’s family history is also rich with spiritual seekers, including her great-great-great-grandfather Ralph Waldo Emerson. On Naushon Island, the family’s private enclave off Cape Cod, apparitions have always been as common as the servants who once walked the back halls. But the “afterlife” took on new meaning once Forbes dipped into the world of clairvoyants to reconnect with Charlotte.
With a mission to help others by sharing her own story, Forbes chronicles a world of ghosts that reawakens us to a lost American spiritual tradition. Filled with rare and candid glimpses into the lives of the Forbes clan, The Angel in My Pocket ($27.95) is a moving and utterly unique tale of one mother’s undying love for her child.
Sukey Forbes currently splits her time between Mill Valley and Boston, where she runs an art, antiques, and interior design company.
