Allison Dubois, the subject of NBC's show Medium said:

"Mark Ireland is a moving writer who reaches out from the pages of his book and emotionally connects with his readers. He speaks not only from the perspective of a father who suffered the ultimate loss but also as a man who inherited the ability to reconnect with those who have passed on. This book is a must read for anyone trying to comprehend life after death or wanting to learn how loss can create an even stronger bond between the living and those who live again."

Allison Dubois is the author of We are Their Heaven, which contains an excerpt by Mark Ireland.

"I like to think that I am a sympathetic person to those who are in need, but I do not suffer fools gladly. I tell things as they are and abhor falsehoods. In some sense, I am too honest and not given to false praise. That being said-I think this book is marvelous, on many fronts. The Author's "journey" is fantastic and most of all, his absorption of the evidence and experience into his being result in, what I feel, are the correct conclusions. The fact that he speaks intelligently from his heart and soul comes across in the final chapters of the book, along with the 'feeling' of complete honesty... but it is more than that. The summation and condensation of his philosophy is-I can only say, in admiration-outstanding. Everyone should read this book."

"The death of his youngest son, Brandon, launched Mark Ireland on a fascinating quest to discover if we survive the death of our bodies by communicating with ancestors, persons who have gone before. For more than a century, many types of scientific inquiries have focused on after-death communications, and Mark studied all of them. He possesses the driving curiosity, open mind, and critical scholarship of a true explorer, and his candid, engaging writing style invites the reader to join him on his pursuit of knowledge and understanding of the afterlife."

This is the true story of Mark Ireland, a man who seemingly achieved the American Dream. Mark worked hard over the years and enjoyed success - allowing him to build a beautiful home for his family, a wife and two sons, one in high school, and the other in college. In January 2004, however, tragedy struck. Mark's youngest son Brandon suffered a fatal asthma attack while hiking with friends in the mountains near his Arizona home.

Practical, driven, and focused on his business and family, Mark Ireland had pushed aside part of his lineage to concentrate on his own life. Mark's father was a famous psychic-medium who counseled celebrities, appeared on television programs, gave lectures, and demonstrated his abilities worldwide. Richard Ireland's activities even included classified government research work involving psychic phenomena. A pioneer in the field of paranormal studies, endowed with astonishing clairvoyant abilities and a strong intellect, Richard was also a deeply spiritual minister who worked with well-known religious leaders from all faiths. Richard Ireland wrote books and even documented his own psychic work, leaving behind a legacy of valued training materials. These writings, now 35 years old, draw not only on Ireland's knowledge but also from others now recognized as the most significant researchers in the field. Mark Ireland loved his father, Richard, but deliberately chose a different, more stable path than a life centered on the metaphysical.

Despite his pragmatic nature, Mark was disturbed by vivid premonitions and had a sense of impending disaster on the day of his son's death. Mark's son Brandon conveyed the message "stop worrying" as he told his father, "We're going dad." When his worst fears were later confirmed, the practical Mark found himself reentering the world of his father and other intuitive relatives. Applying the same determination he'd utilized in business, Mark returned to his roots, intent on connecting to realms of the spirit in order to reach his son Brandon.

Soul Shift also details Mark Ireland's determined pursuit of the top mediums in America and Europe in a personal search for answers to deep questions. Mark proceeded with caution and modest expectations, but was soon overcome by the remarkably specific and consistent information provided in these readings. Mark initially met with Allison Dubois and received highly compelling information that fit with his father and son.

After participating in a mediumship experiment, taped for Discovery Channel's "One Step Beyond," Mark Ireland realized that his personal search would no longer be a private matter. Suddenly thrust into the public eye, the pragmatic businessman found himself on a new life course, knowing that he would soon be asked to share his findings with the world. Mark Ireland's story is one of a man whose deep personal loss, and subsequent rediscovery of timeless truths, provides strong evidence that death is not the end of our existence.
