'The Children That Time Forgot' started out as 'Life Before Birth'. PROOF OF REINCARNATION? By P B H With the successful publication of the reincarnation classic 'THE CHILDREN THAT TIME FORGOT' (Originally published as Life Before Birth ) by Peter & Mary Harrison, the questions are still being asked: Is their a human Spirit? Does it exist after death? Where was Spirit before birth? Since the dawn of time humanity has pondered the question of it's own mortality. What domain do we go to after death? The authenticated accounts in'THE CHILDREN THAT TIME FORGOT' stirred up a lot of questions and debates when it was first published. On ITV's 'This Morning' Mary Harrison asked the viewers if they had been exposed to any strange or paranormal activity. There was an explosion of calls which blocked the ITV phone network. There was the story of Nicola who was a boy in a previous life and was killed by a train in Yorkshire. The book's primary aim was to present the children's stories in a neutral, non-judgemental way and let the reader decide. The original idea came to co-author Mary Harrison when she observed her youngest son trying to pick flowers from a floral pattern on her bed cover. The littler baby's actions seemed so quirky and amusing that Mary was prompted to have a letter published in Woman's Own. Mary asked if other mothers had experiences similar funny moments with their little ones. She was completely unprepared for the replies she got - Mary was overwhelmed with letters from parents reporting accounts of reincarnation. From this 'THE CHILDREN THAT TIME FORGOT' was born. Baby Leon is now an academic writer in Florida,USA and is married with 2 sons. Mary sadly passed away in 2002. Her husband Peter continues to work as a successful author and producer.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
