Format: Paperback
While the book might not convince anyone hasn't met Maya that she was a credible mystic, no one who knew Maya well would bother arguing the point. I am as skeptical as they come and I suspect everyone is trying to con me - everyone but Maya. She was accurate in more than a clairvoyant sense; Maya was accurate when it came to reading a person's soul and spiritual destiny.
A 'spiritual mystic,' incidentally, means that the medium, as it were, concerns herself with a person's spiritual well being. While money and romance are the metier of so-called psychics, these elements were irrelevant to Maya. Her readings were first and last related to how a person might live a more fulfilling life - meaning solving their psychological and spiritual problems.
Notwithstanding the purity of Maya Perez's soul, mission, and life, I must also admit that if you didn't know her, this book would mean very little to you. At best, it's a guide to the life and experiences of an astonishingly gifted woman, whose written words, sadly, portray more of the sensational side of her experiences than the spiritual.
And yet, if one can read between the lines of artifice, a woman of profound sensitivity and awareness might still be revealed to the reader.

The other day I thought about Maya Perez, recalling our friendship and her uniqueness as a woman of deep spirituality and insight. We met in Los Angeles in 1968, being introduced by my new husband,Dan. We saw each other on occasion over the next five years, up to the time of Dan's death. Then, Maya and I became associated together until I left the area with my two young sons in early January 1975. During this time, she stayed with me in my home or we stayed with her on a boat at Newport Beach. In this regard, I can attest to Maya's spiritual life. Her life in spirit was her life. She read Psalms in the morning, chanted, prayed and meditated. She radiated love and lightness, imparting the goodness and wisdom that was her nature. I read the chapters of the book online, and it all rings true to the way I knew her. Maya did drop a lot of names, but that was because she knew a lot of people and thought of us all as a large family. Family was very important to her, and she wanted everyone to find happiness. I could go on and on. Maya was an inspiration to me.

Format: Paperback
Although the style of this book is not likely to dazzle the reader with the wonder of its prose, the content is wonderful. Maya Perez was an extraordinary woman, and the reader may catch a glimpse of this spirit even through the not quite translucent text of Born With a Veil. I don't feel I am particularly credulous, and I can affirm Maya was a Real Mystic.

Format: Paperback
In general I concur with the previous reviewer (staceybr)comments. But the writing style took the edge of it (in my humble opinion). This was in stark contrast to a book of the same Genre - Where Heavens Meet - by the female author k.t. Frankovich
