The sixth of Joan Grant's "Far Memory" novels, Return to Elysium is set in the second century BC among the islands of Ancient Greece as well as in Rome before its rise to imperial power. Lucina of Greece was orphaned at a young age and brought up by foster parents. The story begins when she is 13 and is sent to a place called Elysium for study under the tutelage of her philosopher guardian. She is the only woman in Elysium and thought to be very unusual because of her superior intellect. Her life is a battle between cool reason and logic and her own intense psychic abilities. There is pain because her great strength has little outlet in a female life. She flees Elysium with two companions to the young city of Rome, considered by Greeks to be an inferior society. Some years are spent as priestess and oracle-giver in a temple until she escapes with a lover and retreats into marriage. But eventually Lucina returns to Elysium for a breath-taking ending. As a child growing up in Edwardian England, Joan Grant became aware of an astonishing ability to remember previous lifetimes, and as an author professed her seven novels to be based on her personal recollections of other incarnations, male and female, in ancient civilisations. "It is a constantly interesting and impressive book." Times Literary Supplement

About the Author:

Joan Grant authored a set of 7 remarkable novels, in which she recaptures the drama and setting of one of her own previous lives. Called "far memory" novels, these 7 books offer tremendous insight into the nature of reincarnation, spiritual development, and psychic talents. She also wrote a set of memoirs and one nonfiction study of reincarnation, Many Lifetimes, which she coauthored with her 3rd husband, Denys Kelsey.
