Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Using his skills as an investigator, veteran newspaperman and best-selling author Jess Stearn researches the story of Joanne MacIver, who claims to remember a past life as Susan Ganier, a woman who lived a sheltered life in Central Ontario more than a century ago. Stearn takes his readers through an unforgettable and possibly life changing experience. This story is one of the most remarkable ventures into reincarnation ever recorded -- a thought provoking trip into past lives. You won't put it down.

I have been searching for this book for many years. I first read it in 1968 and was intrigued with the subject and the characters in this telling of a young girl who remembered one of her past lives. I must admit it was not as thrilling this time because I have done a great deal of research on reincarnation since 1968, and the subject matter was no longer new to me. However, if you believe in re-birth, or even have an open mind on the subject, I most definitely recommend this book for you.

This book isn't about learning how to regress yourself into your past lives, it's about one story of such. Reading it with that in mind you will enjoy it. Read it to find out you where a king in the 1300's then you will be disappointed.

It is great. Read it back in the early 70's and just read it again after all these years. Enjoyed it as much this time as I did so many years ago. Time to pass it on to my daughter and grand-daughter.

I had purchased this book many years ago & it made a big impression on me. Then I loaned it to someone else & did not get it back. I was glad to be able to acquire it again. The book was in excellent shape. Thanks.

While this book may not be written brilliantly (hence, the 4 stars), the story is spellbinding. If you even wonder a little bit about reincarnation, this is a great book to read.

It must be deja vu all over again. I read this book back in 1970 or so, and thought it was pretty spectacular stuff. But like many works, it has not stood up well over the years. I recently found this book at a local library and decided to read it one more time. It was tedious, dated, and horribly stereotypical. The writer, Stearn is either ignorant of social mores, or an insensitive oaf who doesn't care about labeling those with mental illnesses as idiots, embeciles and morons. That was insensitive even back in '68 when the book was published, and even more by today's standards. There were several instances of just lack of insights and clumsy, repetitious jargon. I enjoyed this book the first time through, but now see that I was as ignorant as the writer was then. But certainly not as insensitive to the human conditions. Maybe the same author should have rewritten his book just as I re read it. maybe we both have changed. It gets one star only because I am fascinated by the subject matter, and figure that anything written on the subject is better than nothing at all.

Probably a book ahead of its time, but there are so many other books dealing with this now. I thought the book was a bit slow reading, but enjoy as it does have a story to tell.
