Turned I read it for the second time, have already read it some 20 years ago. Still interesting and intriguing.

Read this book several years ago. It is one of my all-time favorite books. Even if you don't believe in reincarnation, this will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

"For as long as she could remember, Jenny Cockell had known that she had lived before as Mary Sutton, a young Irishwoman ..."

This book is so pretty and very well written. It appeals to me on a very personal level from all the experiences and history - I recommend it to everyone!

I like this subject matter and I liked the book. I liked to think I will be with my kids.

This book had a really interesting concept and is something I do personally believe in, but I was left with the feeling that it almost would've been more interesting if it had been a magazine article. There seemed to be entire filler pages where the author repeated herself over and over. Like I said, VERY interesting topic, and the story at it's most basic level was extremely intriguing - but as a book, I did not enjoy it very much.

Perusing my bookshelves I discovered this book that a friend recommended to me a long time ago. So I decided to read it -- I actually skimmed it. It is a poorly written book about a woman's search for her presumed past life children. There is some validity to her story but a magazine article well edited would have been more interesting.

Just couldn't get into it. Weird and poorly written.

Haven't read it yet. Sounds interesting though.

This is an intriguing book. It's hard to imagine that what Jenny finds in the end isn't true. I've seen a TV show where the children all quite elderly now were reunited and discussing the whole thing. I think it's a nice book even just for people who are interested in all things Irish whether you believe in reincarnation or not. But, this book and one called Looking for Caroll Beckwith are two books that I feel go a long way to making past lives seem a reality.

I only read this book because a friend gave it to me. It's the true story of a woman who searches for the children she believes she left behind in a past life. The story is interesting, but I found it difficult to connect to the main character.

great story... written in the most tedious, painfully boring way possible.

It was a good book, not great in my opinion but it was good. I was told to read it as it would convince me of reincarnation. Makes me wonder but still not sure. All in all an alright read.
Feb 25, 2016 Alison rated it really liked it
A fascinating story of a woman(Jenny) who since childhood has had memories of another woman Mary, who died 21 years before Jenny was born. (reincarnation)
Mar 28, 2010 Linda rated it really liked it
Tale of a woman's quest to find the children of the woman she was reincarnated from. Strange tale but fascinating nonetheless.
Jan 03, 2009 Mary rated it really liked it
It's a bit of a slow read, but an absolutely fascinating story nonetheless. I believe!
Oct 27, 2008 Jessica rated it it was amazing
This is so good it's hair-raising. If you believe in past lives, it's a must read.
