Does life continue after death? Can a departed loved one change the course of our lives? Send Me Someone shows us that the answer is yes. In this first-person memoir, Diana von Welanetz Wentworth tells the story of a powerful love affair and how it came to encompass dimensions beyond what she considered possible.From the beginning, Diana Webb and Paul von Welanetz were a storybook couple. In the enchantment of their first days together, the two became absorbed by a chemistry that endured through twenty-five years of marriage. Diana and Paul shared everything, personally and professionally. Their passion for cooking, entertaining, and bringing people together led them to successful careers as award-winning cookbook authors, hosts of a television show, and later as founding directors of The Inside Edge, a prominent human potential organization. Regarded by friends as a perfect match, they were even named One of L.A.s Most Romantic Couples by Los Angeles magazine in 1986.But one day, in 1988, everything changed. They discovered that their adventure together was to be cut short when Paul was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Diana was devastated. In rapidly declining health, he told her, I dont want you to be alone. She replied impulsively, Then send me someone! Paul responded, I will.That promise, and its aftermath, is the extraordinary story at the heart of Send Me Someone, Diana relates how, after Pauls death, she became aware that hewas still present in her life and actively concerned with her well-being. Within months, fate introduced her to a new man--Ted Wentworth, a prominent attorney who had lost his wife to cancer. Ted seemed so unlike the dreamy, romantic Paul. He was realistic, funny, mischievous, even a little confrontational. But Diana soon began to appreciate Teds depth and wisdom, along with his edgy sense of the ridiculous. Despite their obvious differences, the two fell in love.Ted, as it turned out, has a well-developed intuitive sense, and as their relationship developed, he revealed something that astonished Diana: he felt a startling inner connection to Paul von Welanetz! In fact, a series of remarkable occurrences soon convinced them both that Ted was indeed the someone Paul promised to send.Send Me Someone is both a romantic love story and a credible account of communication with someone from the other side. As such, it occupies a unique niche while straddling two enormously popular genres. This inspiring book offers hope and reassurance that death is not the end.It is an engaging, real-life tale that love, once known, never really dies. Send Me Someone is, without a doubt, the most compelling love story of the year.
