From the cover: “This is the story of John and Mary — any John, any Mary, brother and sister, husband and wife, sweethearts, friends. The story of you and me, but with this difference: John and Mary have ‘died’ and have entered into their new Life in Spirit .

Harry Edwards, known throughout the world as our foremost spiritual healer and the author of many books on healing, has paused in his busy life to contemplate what the Spirit world might really be like. The result of these deliberations is all here in fascinating and intricate detail as he describes various facets of spirit life as he envisages it… its architecture and how things are constructed through the manipulation of spirit energies; how time and change is measured in spirit life; how travel is accomplished and communication established. There are vivid descriptions of The Halls of Learning, The Animal Kingdom, The Nurseries of Heaven and so on; and his account of a spirit concert as a galaxy of colour, light, movement and music has a breathless quality of beauty and inspiration. Needless to say, spiritual healing is well featured with scintillating observations upon the spirit science whereby healings are accomplished. The story of John and Mary might be considered by some as pure fantasy, but as Harry Edwards himself says in the book I am my severest critic, for I readily acknowledge that there need not be any truth whatsoever in the story of John and Mary — it may all be nothing more than the product of my imagination .

How much of the narrative is his imagination is for the reader to assess; but as Edwards the Healer becomes Edwards the Visionary, giving full rein to an amalgam of a searching imagination coupled with such vividly descriptive writing of life in Spirit, which flowed freely, without a word of preliminary preparation, indicates that it could not be anything other than Spirit inspired. Perhaps this is not surprising, for it is not generally known that in addition to his healership. Harry Edwards is a medium of exceptional calibre and perception, and in this book he reveals the finer qualities of a rare mediumship which draws apart the veil of that great spiritual heritage which awaits us all.”
