'When you read Hope Street, you are uplifted, exhilarated, excited at the profound truths that shine through. This radiant book will bring great comfort, healing and hope to all who are blessed by reading it.'
Patricia ScanlanThis is the true story of a family with a spiritual gift, which has always lived in the heart of one of the traditional working class communities of the North. Their triumphs and tragedies unfolded in the cobbled streets, working men's cottages, terraced houses and council houses of Horwich, near Manchester.Hope Street North had more than their fair share of loss and heartbreak. A young girl was run over and killed by a horse and cart and another died of diphtheria. There were affairs, a secret pregnancy, an elopement and a double suicide. Every family has its secrets and tragedies, but this family had this unique psychic gift passed down from generation to generation: the women of the family were able to communicate with the Spirit worlds.Hope Street begins with Pamela's own Spiritualist childhood. One of her earliest memories, dating from when she was about five is of watching as Spiritualist friends arrived for one of her mother's sittings. She was a medium and the children would wait expectantly for the deep silence that preceded their mother's trances, and for the different voices of the spirits and other paranormal phenomena that spoke through her. Her father told her how on one occasion a carnation, real to the touch and bejewelled with dew, materialized in mid air. Pamela would see her mother gradually, and starting from her head down, disappeared before her very eyes.Hope Street continues with the saga of Pamela's family. She traces the way Spirit worked through generation after generation, culminating in her own remarkable mother. It was after her mother's death, when Pamela was in the depths of despair, that she found her own spiritual gift. Guided by the spirit of her mother, she finally understood the prophecy and message of hope for humanity that Spirit had been working to bring to the world. Introduction by Patricia Scanlan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating 8 Feb 2011
A fabulous read, I galloped though it and couldn't put it down.
An interesting family history, the honesty pours from the pages, even though they were some very hard times, I found it an uplifting book.
Wonderful evocative images run throughout the book of the Author's childhood and her beloved `Rivington Pike' in Horwich. It was a pleasure to read the story of her spiritual journey from a very early age and the positive influence this has had throughout her life. I hope there's more to come on her beliefs and the message from Spirit on what she describes as `The Work'. Fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book written from the heart ... 20 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Hope Street: Pamela Young
In this book Pamela writes with great clarity and precision about the highs and the lows of her life, the many faceted aspects of her experiences and the knowledge and wisdom which they have brought her. Her personal integrity shines through at all times. She speaks therefore directly to the reader and you feel as though she is by your side as you read what she has written. She does not shrink from relating the sometimes harsh reality of the challenges she has faced, of the impact they have had on her and the consequences of the decisions she made when confronted by them. Pamela writes about these episodes with great courage and she depicts them dispassionately. Hope Street is a book written from the heart by a woman with a very big heart and she constantly elicits our compassion. It is the wisdom of the Elder which shines through on every page.
We are given a fascinating glimpse into the life of a young girl growing up in a working class family in Horwich. Pamela's recall is acute and she describes her family, friends and other members of the community and the eventful episodes of their lives with great humour and detachment. However, her book is more than a personal recollection. Within its pages are to be found a social history of the people who lived in a small northern town in the second half of the twentieth century and the birth of the co-operative movement in nearby Rochdale.
She also gives us a short history of the Spiritualist movement with particular reference to the pivotal role her mother, a gifted medium, played in their local Spiritualist Church. We are fascinated to read about the universal spiritual truths that Pam and her family were taught and lived by, precepts that would stand her in good stead throughout her life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hope Street ~ Pamela Young 12 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I chose a 5 star rating for this book for several reasons. I found it to be a well written book, and although it was about the authors family, it also instilled a lot of spirituality to the reader.
It was not a self praising book, as many are in this field. A factual read about a woman looking back on her family history giving an interesting story to tell, with some unexpected little twists to it.
The last third of the book gave me some lessons and food for thought regarding my own outlook and views on life.
A commendable read

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect blend of history and the esoteric 27 Jan 2011
By Adams
Beautifully written, the pages fly by. The blend really works with local history, inter-mingled with a fascinating family history and sprinkled with the esoteric. It makes you want to time travel just to be a fly on the wall.

5.0 out of 5 stars A warm and touching memoir.... 26 Jan 2011
By Walkers
I don't think that you'd have to have an interest in spiritualism to enjoy 'Hope Street', although an open mind would help. It is for the most part a chronicle of the author's family's spiritual development amidst their everyday lives. The last section of the book however, goes into more depth and is a kind of summation of the writer's personal spiritual experiences and the ethos born out of her family's connection to spirit. I thoroughly enjoyed it: a celebration of growth through adversity, with added food for thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming and honest 27 Jan 2011
A lovely read that chronicles an important part of our spiritual history. These early spiritualists paved the way for free thinking and exploration about the nature of being in all its levels and aspects. The author writes about her fascinating ancestry and does not hide the family struggles and difficulties. For this reason, reading the book is like taking to a friend who is sharing real life that most of us can relate to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as I had hoped 18 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, there isn't quite as much spiritual activity in the book as it sounded there might be. Think you needed to be there!

Bit disappointing.
