Publisher's Summary

By all accounts, Thomas Andrews, designer of the ill-fated Titanic, went down with the ship. How, then, could someone else know, not only the vivid and horrific details of what Andrews experienced that tragic night, but also, details of his entire life? How indeed! Since his youth, William Barnes has been haunted by a recurring nightmare, a huge ship looming overhead, piercing screams, heated arguments, frigid water stabbing his body, and a giant peach-colored mass of steel falling on him. At the age of four, Barnes drew a ship with four smokestacks, talked of his ship that had died, insisted on being called "Tommie", and spoke of brothers and a sister he didn't have. More than simply a child's imagination, these scenes are remnants from another time and place in history, another life!
As an adult, the ongoing nightmares pulled Barnes into a deep depression. Ordered to seek help by his employer, Barnes was referred to psychologist Frank Baranowski, Ph.D., who used regression therapy as a clinical tool and who has conducted thousands of regression sessions.
Baranowski uncovers, within Barnes, the persona of an Irish shipbuilder named Thomas Andrews, who died during one of the most dramatic events of the 20th century and captures one of the most convincing cases of reincarnation ever recorded.

Wow, this audiobook was amazing. It was hard not to believe it, but even if it was fiction, it was extremely well done. I am a history buff, and at the moment I am particularly interested in the Titanic (building, facts, ect.). The one problem I found, was not knowing what to believe. There are some very interesting details which, if true, could provide great insight into the disaster. Overall, it was a great listen, and it did alert me to some very insightful facts which I confirmed later on.

I have always been fascinated by the concept of reincarnation and very intrigued by the allure of the Titanic. So with this audio book I got a wonderful dose of both. It is nothing less then amazing. I find William Barnes to be very credible and engaging. I can't help but think that he is the real deal and indeed the reincarnate of the builder of the Titanic, Thomas Andrews. A highly recommended listen. Listen and decide for yourself.
