Publisher's Summary

The second of Joan Grant's Far Memory novels, Life as Carola gives a fascinating glimpse into life in Italy just before the advent of the Renaissance. 

As a child growing up in Edwardian England, Joan Grant became aware of an astonishing ability to remember previous lifetimes. As an author, she professed her seven novels to be based on her personal recollections of other incarnations, male and female, in ancient civilizations. 

Carola was the illegitimate daughter of an Italian nobleman, the Lord of the Griffin, in 16th-century Italy. Cast out at an early age, she joined a band of strolling players. In her short lifetime, Carola gathers harsh experiences of poverty, violence, and bigotry, softened by the friendships she makes on the road: with Petruchio, both jester and sage; with Bernard, the gentle strongman, and Lucia, the harlot who loves him; and with healer Sofia, whose fate warns Carola to keep quiet about her dreams of the Shining One who guides and comforts her.

Enlightening and entertaining.

This is the fourth book I have listened to by Joan Grant. I have thoroughly enjoyed them all and look forward to the rest. I highly recommend.

Beautifully Told

I still own and have read all of Joan Grant’s books, years ago. But was delighted to find them on Audible. It has been a joy, making my way through them a second time. What a treat to experience them through Mil Nicholson’s gifted narration. She brings the books to life & I am lost once again in their rich tapestries. Sometimes it is hard to believe there is just one person reading them. Beautiful...
