Book Review-White Heaven Women-Jessie B. Tyson

Monday, January 12, 2015


This is a beautifully written story about the fate of people with Cerebral Palsy back in the far distant past. Constance Witherspoon had twin girls--one was killed soon after she was born when a storm took down a ceiling and it crashed down on her. The other twin had something wrong with her but no one back then knew exactly what it was. Constance would not give up her daughter! The trials and tribulations of this brave woman and her daughter--the true and kind people they met under extreme adversity and the ignorance of the people of that time period will have you reaching for the tissue box.

And then there is the paranormal aspect of this novel. A Strange blue light always seems to be there to protect Beth. There are some truly malevolent spirits hanging around as well.

Reincarnation of Beth's twin--their meeting--our friendly blue apparitions convince Sally to write down the family history of these incredible women.

Read this book!!! That is all I am going to say!!


About the Book:(from Amazon)

Separated by Death, Reunited by Fate…

In the year 1899, in Whitehaven, Cumbria, UK, Lady Constance Witherspoon, only 14 years of age, gives birth to twin girls during a tumultuous storm. Lady Elisa (Beth) is born with a diagnosis of demonic possession, while her twin, Lady Sarah, is crushed and killed when the ceiling collapses in the storm.

In the year 2000, Sally Witherspane returns home to Whitehaven and is haunted by relentless nightmares about demons and a baby crushed at birth. To discover the meaning of these dreams, she seeks the help of the local psychic, who instructs Sally to attend a past life meeting. It is there that Sally meets Beth Witherspoon.

Persuaded by a ghostly blue apparition, Sally documents a family history filled with deception, abuse and an ancient evil, and she must summon strength and faith to become the woman she is destined to be, one of the last descendants of the White Heaven Women.

Editorial reviews:

"Jessie Tyson evokes the sights, smells, accents and atmosphere of early 20th century northern England to give us a tale of re-incarnation that marches past even our present times; a novel of hope and of the multiple chances that re-incarnation provides the soul in search of enlightenment." —Shane Joseph, author of The Ulysses Man

"A terrifying tale of reincarnation, demons and protective blue ghosts. Debut author Jessie B. Tyson paints a literary landscape of bygone days so skillfully the main characters leap off the pages into our hearts." —Betty Dravis, best-selling co-author of Six-Pack of Blood

"Jessie has written a fast paced book with vivid characters. The sense of place is thoroughly described and puts the reader firmly in the scene—I could imagine everything clearly. Her main character is likeable and you will find yourself wanting to know what happens next. A great book to get lost in on a rainy day." —Dionne Lister, author of Shadows of the Realm

"Nobody knows how to entwine a novel together better than Jessie B. Tyson, as she draws us into a life with Beth, a young lady who seems to have the most complicated life and survival. Beth's path is paved with horror, suspense, paranormal, life, death, love and hate all woven together with such powerfulness, so real, so fragile, yet gripping enough to keep you on the edge to know more. I fell in love with Beth and her sharp mind, fragile body, and her warm heart, and you will too." —Peggy Grigowski, author of A Glimpse of What If
