Thursday Doors: A Door to the Past

#ThursdayDoors #bookstagram #writingprompt

I haven’t been anywhere new this week, so I had the brainstorm of posting a book with a door on its cover. This is PAST LIVES: A JOURNEY by Bodie Parkhurst.

Here’s the review I left of it:

This book is a series of stories written in response to past-life regression exercises. As a matter of full disclosure, I hereby state that, although I bought the book, I did so because I had read a couple of the stories on Bodie’s blog, and knew they were beautiful.

Heartbreaking to joyful, it’s cleansing and healing to follow this writer’s journey through these vicarious (or allegorical?) explorations of experiences of one person’s oppression by another.
The experience and the catharsis are valid for persons of either gender, although the stories of “the woman in the red dress” speak most clearly to female readers.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: A woman in a doorway.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    This is a great door to share, Marian. It sounds like a wonderful book, and I’m sure Bodie appreciates the mention. I wish her well with the book.

      I love everything I’ve ever read by her. She does the illustrations/art, as well.
