    Confirmation I Needed

    I bought this book when I came across it during research for material to use on my book tour for The Sid Series ~ A Collection of Holistic Stories for Children. I have a grandson (Sidney) who spoke of his attempt to enter my body as my own child in 1978. I wasn't certain I had been pregnant or miscarried until he confirmed that he was the soul trying to be born to me. He was upset that I let his daddy (1979) and aunt (1983) be born to me, but not him. I explained to him (and myself!) what happened and we were both able to find peace about it.

    Sid also spoke of trying to help his sister, Elizabeth, find him. He has no sister in this life. His mom miscarried twice before Baby Jonas was born this year (2009) now that Sidney is eight years old. After reading Carol's book, I searched our family tree and found an ancestor by that name. Thanks to what I learned in this book about pre-birth announcements, I now have confirmation that a soul who was very close to me has reincarnated as one of my seven grandsons. My dream two nights before he was born was in fact a visitation by that soul.

    I can't thank the author enough for researching and presenting this information in an easy-to-read and very interesting book. If anyone has miscarried a baby, lost a baby at birth, or had an abortion, this book is a must-read. You will gain an understanding that has not been presented in any other book I've read on the topic.

    FASCINATING AND ENLIGHTENING

    When I started this book I had only intended to read a chapter or two before going to bed. The more I read, the more I had to keep reading and I ended up reading over half the book that first night. I was so enthralled by the detailed accounts of the past life experiences of these children and how they and their families were affected. Riveting, captivating, sad and funny,the stories will leave an indelible mark on your heart and on your soul.

    Interesting as a work of fiction

    I found the book to be a sort of interesting read. The author makes many statements and assertions throughout the book which are not referenced annotated or documented. Later she cites her own assertions as 'evidence.'

    The book was generally interesting and a bit thought provoking. But overall I found it to be lacking as a literary work.

    Very enlightening, I enjoyed every page

    I enjoyed reading this book very much. Although I am interested in "New Age" I had never read anything by this author before but will be buying her previous book "Children's Past Lives." I would have liked to keep this book but had a friend that wanted to read it also. I hope she return's it. Nice book for mothers that have suffered a miscarriage or lost a child through illness. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.

    I Also Recommend:

    Absolutely fascinating and thought-provoking.

    The author, a known expert in such matters, presents her cases in great detail. Her research seems extremely thorough and those cases documented are riviting! Very thought provoking, it opened up whole new perspectives to me. It's given me a peace of mind on some very delicate issues, such as miscarriage. But even if you don't agree with her concepts, it is really fascinating reading!

    Spirit Influence

    I read the introduction and here¿s my take on this¿ It is my personal conviction that our genetic makeup influences more then just our physical appearance; our mental faculties and characteristics (personality traits) are also hereditary just like our physical traits. Therefore, a grandchild could behave much like his grandfather or other relative who has passed away. I think there¿s also a very real possibility that a young child, especially because he/she is a ¿clean slate¿ of sorts, can act as a vehicle for spirit influence. When these events referenced in the book occur, I think it¿s most likely a spirit (hopefully benevolent) simply manifesting itself through an impressionable child. In no way do I believe that the child is literally ¿the soul¿ of some past ancestor as this would deny the individual soul of the child. Think about it, if the ¿soul¿ is, in fact, ¿genetic¿; every child is the result of miscellaneous genes mixed together unique to a combination of genes between a specific mother and father. Brothers and sisters are normally not alike in personality because they are the result of an infinite combination of genes even though both mother and father are the same. Even identical twins whose DNA is ¿identical¿ have radically different personalities¿ I think the rational conclusion is that the spirit world influences the physical world and that¿s how and why these mysteries occur. There is some biblical evidence that when we die we are ¿like angels¿; the ancients believed that angels (both good and bad) influence our thinking ¿the devil made me do it¿ but they do not necessarily dictate the material world, otherwise personal accountability, free will and responsibility would be non-existent. Thanks!

    Return from Heaven

    The title caught my attention. This is an excellent book, very well put together, It really put me one step closer to thinking that anything is possible. The author's approach in writing this story, makes this book a must read. Highly recomended.

    an eye opener

    Your grandmother may come back as your son. Your father may be reborn as your grandson. Any kind of combination is possible. Bowman documents cases of reincarnation within the same family that are astonishing and offer hope to bereaved families. Highly recommended!
