Across Time and Death, A Mother's Search for Her Past Life Children by Jenny Cockell, Simon & Schuster, 1994.
Summary (from book cover)
For as long as she could remember, Jenny Cockell had known that she had lived before as Mary Sutton, a young Irishwoman who had died over twenty years before Jenny was born. Her constant dream-memory was of Mary dying, alone and desperately worried about what would happen to the eight young children she was leaving behind. When at last her own children were born, Jenny finally acknowledged that she needed to find out what had happened to her lost family.
Across Time and Death is the compelling story of a mother's love that reached from one life to another to reclaim her children. In a voice so honest, plain, and sincere that you know her story must be true, Jenny Cockell writes of the dreams that haunted her childhood, the painstaking search for facts and details that confirmed the existence of her past life, the discovery of the fate of her family, and their emotional reunion.
Memories of a past life as Mary Sutton began early in childhood, both while awake and during dreams.
Maps and sketches of where Mary lived in Ireland were drawn very early, and later were found to be accurate.
Jenny demonstrated considerable psychic ability since childhood.
A series of hypnotic regression sessions resulted in much more detail becoming available concerning Jenny's past life, which was subsesquently verified.
In these sessions, the period between lives was found to be blackness.
During Jenny's first meeting with Mary's oldest son, she was able to produce a wealth of detail about the earlier life, memories of their cottage, its surroundings, meeting her son at a jetty, a pet, and Mary's husband and parents. This information was corroborated by the son.
She was able to locate all of her eight children from a past life that were still living. Some of these became comfortable with the claimed reincarnation of their mother and participated in a video documentary with Jenny which showed them exploring the ruins of their old cottage and exchanging memories of their life there.
The narrative contained in the book gives the reader a sense of honesty about the recollections that are described.
