Bargle | 1173 comments This is probably easy, but I'm having one of those blank memory moments.
Back in the 60s or maybe early 70s, I read a book about a psychic. The psychic was female and, I think, named Jean something. She was popular and well known at the time. It's also possible I've mixed her up with Edgar Cayce, who I also read a book about around the same time.
The book was a pocket paperback with Andrew Wyeth's "Christina's World" on the cover. First time I had seen it and that stuck with me.

Lisa (lisalal) | 70 comments I'm guessing the psychic could be Jeane Dixon, but not sure of the book.

Bargle | 1173 comments Yes, Jeane Dixon. That's the female psychic at least.

ETA: Thanks, Lisa!

That may be it. I'll do some more checking.

Juels | 2399 comments It isn't an exact match to Christina's World but it does vaguely resemble it. I came across it while searching for Jeane Dixon.

Bargle | 1173 comments Yes, Here and Hereafter was the cover I was thinking of. Now that my memory has been jogged, I remembered that I read 3 books on Psychics in a short time. The Jeane Dixon book was A Gift of Prophecy: The Phenomenal Jeane Dixon. The third was a book about Edgar Cayce. Probably Edgar Cayce Sleeping Prophet.

Thanks, Juels.

ETA: Thanks to the Mod that did the shelving.
