JUST TODAY, I FOUND THIS AMAZING 5-STAR REVIEW ON MY LATEST BOOK, JUST RELEASED THIS YEAR, “ANNIE’S STORY, BLESSED WITH A GIFT”
THANK YOU “Dimmy,” an amazon book reviewer, you captured the essence of my character “Annie” perfectly! My smile is blended with tears of gratitude…
“I read this book a couple of months ago. It is the story of a little girl who was born in the 17th century in North Eastern United States, a time of trouble, war, fury, cold, hunger, suffering, sorrow and a lot of joy too. The little girl seemed to be immune to most of the negative human emotions that trouble human beings. She was brought up lovingly and with care by her grandma, she having lost her parents as she was born. But having been blessed with a sixth sense and the ability to perceive things which are not in the dimensions we human beings know, she was far advanced for her age, time and space. She was well versed in native medicine as was her grandma.
Times were hard but Annie, the little girl grew up as a Blythe spirit. She was physically handicapped but mentally she had the development of people far beyond other human beings. In addition she could speak to animals and nature.
This story is about love, and hope and courage and survival.
It gives us hope that in spite of all ills and disabilities, man can still live and live well. Deborah Bowman the writer writes in a clear language and has done her research into the time period well. She has tried to use the language of the times and that increases the authenticity of the content.”

Annie is a beautiful sprite who talks to the animals and ethereal spirits and faeries of the forest in mid-1600s Colonial America. She is blessed with the gift of healing from the Spiritual Universe, but Annie is also dwarfed, mentally slow, and lacking in social and emotional development. She is the victim of birth defects in a time when such babies were put to death or banished, along with their mothers.
Ridicule, bullying, and perceptions haven’t changed much from the 17th Century to the 21st. We still see the inequality of women’s rights and “special” people of all ages being ignored, bullied, or labelled. Annie came to me in a past-life regression while I was studying to become an Advanced Certified Psychological Hypnotherapist, ACPH, to help myself deal with the pain, immobility, and weight gain of an immune-deficieny disease treated with steroids.
Was I Annie in another life? Or did a higher being select me to tell this story with its timeless message? I’ll let you decide based on your personal beliefs. Annie is written as historical fiction, based on extensive factual research.
“Annie’s Story” begs to be told. She is an unusual child growing up in the British North American Colonies who is “Blessed With A Gift.”
Gone are the days of history…
by Deborah A. Bowman
Gone are the days of yesteryear.
Gone are smiles, miles, tears and fears.
We of the present can learn from history.
Those of the future will fulfill our destiny.
The past comes alive as sins and wins are repeated.
Triumphs are heralded; Foes are defeated.
If only we could stop the challenges.
If only we could heighten the balances.
It makes me wonder as I ponder,
If all on earth have wandered
These paths before in yesteryear
And have returned with our hopes and fears.
History repeats itself,
But we remain ourselves
Through thick and thin, but in different skins.
Reacting the same way as we begin
Lifetimes in new bodies, when we are given
A chance to redeem our numerous sins
Or spread truth and love, strong and sage,
As we enter life in a future age.
Will I live again
Or is this the end?
Perhaps is this me in a previous life?
