Joan Grants autobiography, (previously known as Time Out of Mind) was recommended to me by a friend, and it makes for fascinating reading. First published in 1956, this is an interesting insight into that time period.
The Far Memory the title refers to is the ability to recall past lives, and, in Joans case, she is able to do this in great detail. The book has snippets from other books she has written, from her life as an Egyptian Pharoah, to her life in Italy. It's written so matter-of-factly, you don't have any reason to doubt it.
She has led a fascinating life, and you will find you get involved in no time. From her childhood to adulthood, she will take you on a journey; often inspiring, sometimes funny, sometimes sad. She will also make you think, when it comes to your views on God and the afterlife, and her book is very refreshing.
I have now ordered The Winged Pharoah, and am very much looking forward to it. If you have an open mind, and enjoy a good read, I would definitely recommend this.
