A young midwife and her doctor friend, called to assist in the difficult birth, find themselves in the middle of a bizarre family fight. They overhear rumors about an old woman, living further up the mountain, who is said to make time move backwards, resurrect the dead and suck the living back to the womb. The midwife's disbelief sets the stage for the wondrous events that unfold that night."

"This is a very long book, about 750 pages. It takes place in the UK and is a story about time travel and possible reincarnation. I thought the book was good but it did take me a long time to read the whole thing."

"On the morning of December 30, 1978 in Littleton, CO, Robert Spangler lured his wife Nancy into the basement with the promise of a "surprise". He then shot her in the head with a .38 handgun. Going upstairs, he shot his teenage children, Susan and David. David was slow in dying, so his father finished him off by smothering him with a pillow.

Spangler had cunningly framed the crime scene, making it appear that his wife had shot their children, and then herself. Now he was free to marry his new love, Sharon Cooper. A former high school athlete, he hiked the Grand Canyon with Sharon, who chronicled the trip in a book dedicated to her "soul mate," Spangler. But their happiness was short-lived. The marriage ended in a costly, messy divorce.

In April, 1993, when Spangler's third marriage to 59 year old aerobics instructor Donna Sundling went sour, he took her hiking in the Grand Canyon and pushed her off a 140 foot drop to her death. In 1994, when ex-wife Sharon committed suicide, Spangler became the focus of intense police scrutiny. Wracked with brain cancer, he told all to investigators in the fall of 2000, detailing his shocking serial saga - the story of a two time widower...and a four time killer."

"From the back cover: They were once sweet little girls - sugar and spice, and everything nice. Now they're cold blooded criminals, behind the bars of America's most dangerous prisons - hardened women doing their time. How and why did they cross to the dark side? What makes women kill their husbands, lovers, family, and innocent strangers?

Note: This book was published in 1998 and looks like it has been read a few times since then but is definitely still in good condition, just appears slightly "tired"."
