I really liked this book. For this book, the story synopsis on goodreads doesn't do it justice at all. The title does a better job of telling the story. A spell-binding case history told by the psychiatrist, of a patient's hypnosis and past life regression - in this case intended as (and effective as) therapy. The doc starts off innocently enough, thinking he would regress this patient to a blocked early childhood memory which could explain her current fears. Once discovered he felt they could deal with it and help the presenting symptoms. He was surprised to find her returning beyond early childhood, to a previous lifetime. Fast forward a bit, they continue the therapy and the lives continue to emerge. The awakening in the psychiatrist as he comes to grips with what he is discovering is fascinating. Since I believe in reincarnation, the theories in this book resonate strongly for me. There was some new information (to me) about groups of souls staying together through multiple lifetimes that I enjoyed and find comfort in. There was also some channeling of "higher spirits" that didn't work as well for me but was compelling for the doctor and helped him believe what he was hearing. I'm not sure how this book will work for a person who is not open to the idea, at least, of reincarnation, but I suggest you give it a try. It is a short, fast, thought-provoking and captivating book.
