reviewed Far Memory (Joan Grant Autobiography) on
"Far memory" is the ability to recall one's earlier lifetimes with as much clarity and vividness as one might recall an episode from twenty years ago in this lifetime. Joan Grant has an exceptional talent for far memory--a talent she nurtured and developed as a young adult. This led to the writing of seven novels which are, in fact, recollections of earlier lives she has led, from ancient Egypt to Renaissance Italy, from thousands of years ago in America to Greece and Rome at the beginning of the Roman Empire. These seven novels, which have been immensely popular for almost fifty years, are: Winged Pharaoh, Life as Carola, Return to Elysium, Eyes of Horus, Lord of the Horizon, Scarlet Feather, and So Moses Was Born.

In this book, her autobiography, Joan tells the story of her present life and how she came to develop her intuitive skills and write her novels. It is a fascinating, even breathtaking story to read, as she recounts her adventures as a high-spirited child, the shock of losing he fiance through a tragic accident, the discovery of deep, enduring friendships, and ultimately, the unfolding of her amazing talents.

"Joan Grant is a writer with unique qualities..Her conceptions have originality and novelty; her style is simple and beautiful." -- The London Times. (from the back cover)
