Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

For over 36 years, Annette Martin has used her psychic ability--the Gift of the White Light--to help thousands of people answer everyday questions concerning heart, career, health, emotional issues, and departed loved ones. She frequently assists law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, in solving heinous crimes and locating missing persons. When giving health readings, Annette Martin channels Edgar Cayce, the "sleeping prophet." Martin's predictions are uncannily accurate. In a reading requested by John Denver, she said she saw him flying a small craft that would tumble into the ocean. Fifteen years later he would die exactly that way.

From the Back Cover

Annette Martin will tell you that from her earliest days, when she would go to bed at night and close her eyes, she would see a powerful White Light shining over her, enveloping her, warming her. The White Light was a comfort to her, and she knew, even from a very young age, that it was a gift from God. She gradually came to know that it was her mission in this life to learn to use its awesome power to help people.

I have read many books on psychics and their lives, Annette's life is one of service to humanity and along with that comes this gift of the white light.

What is unique about his book is that it is written by a writer who starts out as a true skeptic. James N. Frey doesn't pretend to have all the answers to the little understood gift of intuition or psychic mediumship, but he does render the bio in a way that lets the reader form their own opinion. His personal experiences with Annette are a standout, especially the story of his stepmother. Annette Martin is presented as a person, not an above-it-all guru who knows more than "us", and she is as honest about the personal costs of being psychic as she is steadfast about her goal of service.

I have known Annette Martin for over 20 years and have wittnessed her powerful psychic abilities. I was honestly skeptical if James Frey could really capture the magic of her life, and abilities with accuracy without making the book into a new agey, woo-woo read. He certainly succeeded on all counts. Gift of the White Light is a true, unembellished and totally engaging biography of an amazing psychic. But, Frey did more than write a great biography, he wrote a page-turner. I am reminded of the style of the late James Mitchener's historical novels that informed as well as entertained. Gift of the White Light captures the amazing true-life adventures of one of the nation's most renouned psychics. Nothing is left out, all the stories are there, from famous astronaut boyfriend to the faeries in Ireland and more. The next best thing to reading the book is getting a reading from Annette.

I am now halfway through "Gift of the White Light" - it is a compelling book, with author James Frey writing in a spare, direct manner about the life of Annette Martin. Annette is clearly a gifted psychic and it is fascinating to read how her life unfolds within the context of this gift. She has used her abilities to help countless people, and Frey discusses her considerable accomplishments in a straightforward and engaging way. I can't wait to finish it, and even at this midpoint, am planning on purchasing it as a gift for family and friends.

I read this book and couldn't put it down. I was so enthralled by her that I drove up and had a personal reading with Annette. She nailed things. She knew personal details about my health, my spouse and even the murder of a family member. It was creepy -- in a good way. I'm a believer that Annette has a true gift. And she's not a weirdo either. She's a normal, really nice, happy person. LOL! That probably sounds hilarious but seriously I was expecting her to be strange. Even though I saw the picture of her in her book, I was expecting an eccentric kooky type of person who dressed weird or had goofy characteristics. I wasn't sure what to think, and I was wondering what I was doing driving up there, but I was too curious after reading her book. Guess what? She's the nice lady standing in front of you at the grocery store -- not literally, ha ha, in other words she's a regular person. She just happens to have a psychic gift. She's level headed and normal. Fun company. Actually she's really funny. Great book. Nice lady. The real deal. I believe in this type of gift now when before I was skeptical. There is no way she could have known the things she told me. She only had my first name to go off of. But when she looked at the pictures I brought and touched them it was like someone was speaking to her details about my life. I'm more of a spiritual person after that experience. And it really helped me find some peace.

Wow! I really enjoyed this book. Annette Martin is obviously a gifted psychic and the book documents numerous, fascinating examples of her work. The book takes the reader through Annette's other interesting adventures including travel and her singing career. This book is a must-read! Ms. Martin, thank you for sharing your story.

This is a wonderful story of the life of a psychic, told by a skeptic whose opinion of what is real and not real changed as he wrote the book. The reader is lead through the psychic's own discovery of her abilities as a child, along the path to an exciting career in which she uses her abilities to help others in endless ways. Readers of this book will not only be entertained by the story, but will feel more confident in their own psychic abilities.

I usually do not read bios. Reading and reviewing the books from my friends at the Shameless Self Promotions forum here as well as the 40 authors I follow keeps me pretty busy with the thriller genre I love to read.
But I also am a student of the metaphysical - My early influences were Edgar Cayce, and Arthur Ford, now Kathleen Tucci -
So when made aware of this biography beautifully written by James N. Frey, I started reading the book when I received it and continued for about 80 pages. That is always a sign to me it's a winner of a book.
I am ashamed to say I'd not seen any of Ms. Martin's works, although have seen Ghost Hunters and Paranormal State, and the others on A&E and the Biography Channel and Discovery Channel. Perhaps some of the programs I have seen have had her cases - will be on the lookout from now on! I see she has been on also on Court TV and Nancy Grace.
Annette Martin knew she had a special gift - she always surrounded herself with the White Light of God when she slept. Her psychic abilities blossomed when she met her Spirit Guide - Cama -
She married and moved all over the world, and in those places, she helped people - as well as working with the FBI, police and others to help solve crimes, give details, and locate missing people (some dead).
Ms. Martin sometimes channels Edgar Cayce, whom I mentioned was a big influence of mine. She has worked with physicians to help pinpoint hard to find illnesses and she has also been tested under controlled circumstances.
She also is an accomplished opera singer and has sung all over the world.
What a bunch of talents combined in a petite pretty lady!
Mr. Frey chronicles Ms. Martin's life and influences and we feel a knowledge of a truly gifted lady who knows the tremendous importance of encompassing yourself in the pure White Light of God.
A great bio.
