More About the Author

Lyn was born in Liverpool in September 1944. Her father Joseph was killed on D-Day in 1944 when Lyn was just nine months old. When Lyn was three her mother Monica married Frank Moore, who became 'Dad' to the little girl. Lyn was brought up in Liverpool and became a secretary before marrying policeman Robert Andrews. In 1970 Lyn gave birth to triplets - two sons and a daughter - who kept her busy for the next few years. Once they'd gone to school Lyn began writing, and her first novel was quickly accepted for publication. She has since written a further thirty-five novels.

Lyn lived for eleven years in Ireland and is now resident on the Isle of Man, but spends many weeks of the year back on Merseyside, seeing her children and four grandchildren.

Format: Paperback
Andrews has been critcized for her approach to 20th century spiritualism, but this book shows that her fiction has an edge rarely found in contemporary writing. This addition to her chronicles takes the author on a dreamtime journey to Celtic England where Catherine (Andrews in a previous life) begins her studies with a wise woman and the Women of Wyrrd, those ancient crones who hold all the truths of all time. Celtic lore especially fascinates me and the journeys and experiences of Catherine serve to reinforce that we all share the same roots, regardless of the lables we assume today. I read these books for the spiritual truths between the lines and found this book to have more than it's share. A delight to read and to experience.

When I discovered this book it felt as though I'd found a real treasure... I was right. Lynn Andrews writes beautifully, the simple yet detailed descriptions spoke straight to my heart and it felt as though I was learning wonderful truths as Catherine/Lynn was describing them.
Written from the heart, to the heart.
Using fiction was also a brilliant move as it transports us into the state of mind where we are able to see and understand the truth in the words and learn what we need to learn from the experience! Well worth the full price for anyone interested and definately worth the pennies it costs on Amazon!

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
I really enjoyed this book...I have read Lynn Andrews book out of sequence because several friends and I are sharing them...that hasn't changed her story for me at all. The fact that she is such a wonderful storyteller makes that possible for you to do! I love her...

Always A Good Read 29 May 2009
By Sarah S. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lynn Andrews is always a wonderful read. Quite a few years ago I read each one as it came out, but somehow missed this one. So fun to be back in the fold of the Women of the Shield, and to see Ruby again.
This is a wonderful journey into spirituality and a small study of Celtic ... 17 Nov. 2014
By Wanda Fields - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful journey into spirituality and a small study of Celtic Paganism. I HAVE READ ALL of Lynn Andrew's books beginning with MEDICINE WOMAN. The books are written as a relationship between Lynn and the women who guide her, two Native Amercan women. I love that there is no boundary between theologies and many spiritualities are addressed. Lynn is taught how to "live" her ideals instead of "preach" them. Whether you take the entire narrative of each book as what actually occurs or not is not important. The lessons are entwined within the story and can stand alone. The ONLY reason I did not give four stars to one of the most umportant books that I have ever read is because of the cover!...I own a copy of the book when it was first published years ago. The cover incorporates a wonderful picture of a Celtic young woman and Hawk. The newest cover is a bazaar abstract that not only isn't connected in any way with the warmth of the story but would "put off" a new reader browsing the racks. I would advice the new reader to look for an old copy of the book and the publishing company to revisit the book art!

I thought she was able to take you on her journey into past life regression in this book. I got lost in this book!
