KIRKUS REVIEW

Most of the stories in this collection appear to be well-documented and they include the tale of the little girl who suddenly sang an ""absolutely forbidden"" French song that had been taught to her dead sister before her birth; an Edgar Cayce life reading that almost failed to convince a journalist that he was actually a ""born salesman""; a look-back at the pro's and no's of the Bridey Murphy Case and, most interesting and most thoroughly investigated, the story of Shanti Devi. Shanti was an Indian child who claimed that she had previously died in childbirth and that her husband and sons were still living in a town hundreds of miles away. This led to a bizarre family reunion witnessed by Indian authorities who went away convinced. Then there's Joan Grant's memorable Winged Pharaoh... For those who believe in giving reincarnation a ghost of a chance.
