Reborn for Love

By Andrade, Hernani Guimarães

From the cover information: This is the story of an unusual relationship between the woman who calls herself ‘Marine Waterloo’ and Father ‘Jonathan’, the priest who befriended her at their Catholic boarding school in the state of Minas Gerais. They kept in touch after Marine left school, married and raised a family. Following the birth of her second son, Marine was presented with compelling evidence that the boy had memories of incidents that had not taken place in his short lifetime, and of which he could have learned nothing by any normal means.
 
The case, which is strongly suggestive of reincarnation, came to the attention of the pioneer of Brazilian psychical research, Hernani Guimarães Andrade, who promptly carried out a thorough investigation with the full cooperation of Dona Marine, who proved to be an ideal witness.
 
The result is an account of one of the most convincing cases of its kind on record. Andrade examines all possible explanations for it – cryptomnnesia, genetic memory, telepathy, mediumship, deliberate fraud and reincarnation. Only the last of these, he argues, best accounts for the facts.
 

Reborn for Love, although of considerable scientific interest, is no dry academic thesis. It could be called a spiritual love story – an account of how a relationship can endure from one lifetime to another
