Product Description

About the Author

It was following a serious road accident in the late 1980s that I decided as I could not return to work, I would write a book. Having always had an interest in the Supernatural - I read the tarot cards for a while - the booklet was obviously always going to be about ghosts. When I was reading the cards many people told me ghost stories, so with their permission these were included. Local papers were always helpful in publishing my appeals for stories, and there was no shortage of people willing to share their ghostly tales. My first ghost booklet Mystical Staffordshire, appeared in the early 1990s. I really only intended writing one, but as it was so popular I wrote another, then another. Numerous ghostly booklets later I combined them into Mysterious Happenings. I have also written other books, Birmingham Girls, Choosing Your Psychic Pathway, Ghosts Angels & Hauntings. I decided to turn my hand to writing fiction in 2007, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of writing Dancing with Spirits and Spirits of the Lights the sequel. Followed by The Other Place, and Jen's Story,Torn Between Two Times. All of my books apart from Birmingham Girls are full of mystical happenings.

A Haunted Past Life (Jen's Story)I was instantly drawn into this story and followed all the twists and turns with an ever-increasing desire to discover what would happen next. Carol Arnall is an author of exceptional talent who paints a picture of a world where the unusual materialises when the reader least expects it. I strongly recommend this book.

Although this book is called A Haunted Past Life, Jen's story is one of a haunted present life, too. The book starts with a Cinderella-type setting (turned on its head with a stepfather rather than a stepmother) who is tied to the house because of agoraphobia, brought about by low self-esteem and confidence thanks to years of abuse by her stepfather and stepsisters. Her real father died when she was very young and her mother is unsupportive. The only friends she has are Angela and Jo, ghosts who visit her and offer comfort in her time of need.

When her stepfather tries to rape her Jen finds the strength to flee to Hoylake, Merseyside, in the car that her father left her, and get herself a flat. She begins a career as an online medium, helping those who approach her to find solace after losing loved ones. This brings Ian and his daughter into her life. When Ian begs for a personal consultation Jen braves her condition and drives to his house. Ian's young daughter has imaginary friends who Jen discovers are actually ghosts of children, and these ghosts visit her in the flat. Jen and Ian are becoming close romantically, but just as she is coming to terms with battling with her agoraphobia her car breaks down, and forced to go out to get groceries to feed herself and her new cat, she calls a taxi. The taxi driver, the mysterious Mike, doesn't drive her to the shops, he drives her to 1965, where she discovers she has a husband and young daughter - and no agoraphobia.

Jen's story alternates between her two lives in the 1960s and 2010s, and the reader is taken not only on a mystic journey but also a journey of emotions as Jen has to decide where her heart really lies.

Jen, a lonely, troubled young woman moves mysteriously between two time zones and two completely different lives and has no control over these strange moves.
This is a beautiful story with some very nostalgic and well researched images of the 1960's which gives the story even more credibility.
I find myself very moved by her dilemma: which life does she really want and how can she go back (or forward) to the one she finally choose?
Jen's story completely absorbed me right to the unexpected and completely plausible end.

Yet another book from this author that I just couldn't' put down. Can't wait to get into next one. Carol has the knack of mixing fiction with spiritualism down to a fine art. You don't get overload or some of the rubbish that you read about spiritualism that you read from some others.

Wordsworth once spoke about the "...willing suspension of disbelief." What this essentially means is that there are some stories that require the reader to cast aside scepticism and accept `realities' that in the normal world could not exist. If the reader is not willing to step outside her or his customary understanding of reality, then he will not be able to enjoy the story. Is there a Superman? Are there alien civilisations scattered throughout the galaxy? Do vampires roam the earth? To enjoy such stories or movies, one is obliged to answer `yes' to these questions.

Shakespeare takes a less rigid tack than Wordsworth and actually hints that all sorts of possibilities exist in the world. Hamlet says to his friend, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." For Shakespeare, the impossibilities might become possibilities depending on the individual's life experiences.

Either way, Carol Arnall makes similar demands upon the reader in her new book - "Jen's Story: Torn Between two Times". The author posits (by implication) two basic premises: one, the possibility of time travel, and two, the possibility that ghosts are not phantoms that frighten but are friendly beings who can interact happily with humans who have certain psychic skills. If the reader casts aside any scepticism or disbelief and accepts this world's realities, then he or she will find Jen's a most enjoyable story indeed.

Step into Arnall's world and you are met with a fascinating story of a young woman who, after a brutal Cinderella start to life, is drawn into a new realm of mystery and imagination, a realm that leads to two lives and possibly two loves.

Jen Rickmand's life had been terrible so far, suffering abuse from her step-father. Jen's only escape from her horrid home life is her interest in the paranormal and she has the ability to see and hear spirits.

After a terrible assault at the hands of her step-father, Jen knows she has to get away and leave and she does just this, in the hope that she can start a new life and find happiness. But first Jen must come to terms with the anxiety her old life as left her with.

Just when Jen is making good progress with her life and starting to move forward, a ride in a taxi with a mysterious driver called Mike, will change Jen's life forever, when she finds herself to have travelled back in time to 1965, and finds she has a life there with a devoted and loving husband and child. Jen finds herself shifting between the two times of 1965 and 2011, not sure which one she truly belongs to.

Where will she find happiness in the past or in the present?

Only time will tell.

I really enjoyed this story; Jen is such an amazing and likable leading character, who finds herself torn between two worlds. This was a book I could not put down. There is just something really different and unique about this story. It stands out from the usual time-travel stories that are often all wrote in the same way, with the same outcome. This story really develops the time-travel type story and brings it to a whole new level. The paranormal side to the story fits perfectly together with the time-travelling, making this so much more than just a time-travel story and with the emotional side to it too. I also found myself losing about four hours' time before I had known it reading this brilliant book. A brilliant read from beginning to end, that leaves you wanting to read more.
