This book is a treasure. A friend recommended it to me and loaned me his copy. I have since obtained my own. Reginald Lester was quite well known in his day as both a psychic healer and active participant in the spiritualist circles extant following World War II and into the fifties. He began as a skeptic, but his devotion to his departed wife, Marjorie, and his determination to communicate with her, led him to explore the world of English spiritualism and to meet and experience professionally most of the leading mediums of the time. He was acquainted with Arthur Findlay, who established the Arthur Findlay College for mediums outside London, and which is still active and highly regarded today. Lester had incredible experiences of afterlife communication with his wife, but at the same time encountered a number of frauds who he helped expose. He wrote newspaper articles and several books on afterlife communication, all reflecting his dedication to honesty and accuracy in his reporting.
His wife Marjorie takes center stage in his account, and she comes across as spunky and endearing. In time, their association between the worlds becomes natural and even casual in its offhand sort of banter. Lester visits Marjorie frequently on the Other Side when he is asleep and able to travel astrally. Otherwise, he contacts her through various mediums he has come to know and trust.
