Read from December 01 to 09, 2011

Fantastic account of Egyptologist Dorothy Eady (1904-1981), an English woman drawn to Egypt at the early age of three. After a fall down the stairs in her home, Dorothy regained consciousness and found visions, memories, and knowledge in her mind that spoke of an Egypt she had left nearly 3300 years earlier. Devoted to Egypt and the old gods, she found herself reunited in Abydos in the mid-1900's with the love of her life: Pharaoh Sety I who ruled Egypt from 1306 to 1290.

One of my favorite quotes comes from the day of her departure from England to a safe haven in 1941. Having been befriended by renowned Egyptologist Sir E. A. Budge of the British Museum, he asks her why she is so determined to learn to read Egyptian hieroglyphs. Her reply:

"Because I used to know, and now I must remember it all again."
