A FASCINATING LOOK AT REINCARNATION...
on 12 April 2005
I first read about the strange story of Jenny Cockell and her search for her past life children in a magazine many years ago and found it fascinating. I did not realize that she had written a book about her experience, until I happened to catch a movie on television that was titled, "Yesterday's Children", starring Jane Seymour. As soon as I saw the film, I realized that it was the story of the woman about whom I had read so many years before. When I saw that the film was based upon a book that she had written about her experience, I immediately ordered the book from Amazon.
The book is an intriguing look at the concept of reincarnation. Jenny Cockell's experience would tend to support such a concept. Ever since she was a child, Jenny was haunted by dreams and fragments of a past life, of Mary, a woman who had died twenty one years before Jenny was born, of children who were Mary's but whom Jenny felt were, nonetheless, her own, of a town in Ireland in which she had lived as Mary. So, when Jenny Cockell was a woman in her thirties, she decided to investigate those memories. Always at the forefront of her mind were thoughts of those children of long ago. What she would discover would give even the most hardened nay-sayer food for thought.
This is a well-written, persuasive account of a past life, as well as the story of a mother's love for her children, a love that would reach across time and transcend temporal reality. For those who discount the concept of reincarnation and think that this is all that there is, I would suggest that they read this book and think again.
