Winner of 2008 Best Beach Book Award for Spirituality
In 1998, Barbara was enlisted by a representative from the British tabloid The Sun to conduct an interview with Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales for the one-year anniversary of her death. While the interview was never published, a project began that truly stretched beyond even the wildest imagination: 12 interviews with some of the most famous figures of the 20th century, all working together for world peace.
Party of Twelve presents a fascinating look from Afterlife at a wide range of cultural issues, including domestic abuse as seen by Nicole Brown Simpson, reincarnation and education by Albert Einstein, feminism and abortion by Norma Jean Baker, and gratitude and AIDS by Ryan White, among others. Ending with the Manifesto of the Destiny of World Peace, Party of Twelve: The Afterlife Interviews stimulates your thinking about possibilities for creating peace on our planet and reassures us that we are more powerful than we can possibly dream.
Ron | Wisconsin: “Buy Party of Twelve only if you 1) are courageous enough to question deeply-held personal perspectives; 2) are willing to consider that concepts like ‘peace,’ ‘love,’ and ‘compassion’ are first nouns, then become verbs; 3) desire a deep personal healing and a healing in others. I’ve found that Party of Twelve was eerily timely. With such a seemingly diverse group of people (John F. Kennedy, Einstein, and Ryan White, among others …), it was important to suspend judgment until all comments were read. Indeed, there is a connection between them and us that is stronger, richer, and more profound than what might be imagined …”
Rochelle | Minnesota: “I thought this book was absolutely fascinating. The author says, right up front that you can believe what she wrote as being real, or you can enjoy it as an inventive work of fiction. Either way, it is entertaining. It is also a book about hope and possibilities. The interviews with Hitler and Jesus gave a perspective that I had never considered before. Hitler was the absolute worst embodiment of humanity, so we could hopefully learn not to follow that path again. Jesus was the embodiment of humanity’s full potential and it is supposedly within our reach. Without the darkness, can we recognize the light? The viewpoints of the other interviews invite the reader to look at things from a different angle. Very well written. I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
Diane | Minnesota: “This is an amazing book! Whether it is all true or not I don’t know, but it feels true to me. I especially love the section on Jesus of Nazareth and his message that we are here to be Pure Compassion in human form. How can that not be true? The section on Hitler and forgiveness I found very profound. The section on Marilyn Monroe about the Kennedy assasination is very interesting and could be true.”
