During these devastating years there were a number of mysteries that have still to be solved and one such event took place in 1939. The next book today, The Bridge of Deaths, is by M.C.V. Egan (Catalina Egan) and has a very personal connection to her family.
On August 15th, 1939, an English passenger plane from British Airways Ltd. crashed in Danish waters between the towns of Nykobing Falster and Vordingborg. There were five casualties reported and one survivor. Just two weeks before, Hitler invaded Poland. With the world at the brink of war, the manner in which this incident was investigated left much open to doubt.
The jurisdiction battle between the two towns and the newly formed Danish secret police created an atmosphere of intrigue and distrust. The Bridge of Deaths is a love story and a mystery. Fictional characters travel through the world of past life regressions and information acquired from psychics as well as archives and historical sources to solve “one of those mysteries that never get solved.”
Based on true events and real people, The Bridge of Deaths is the culmination of 18 years of sifting through conventional and unconventional sources in Denmark, England, Mexico and the United States. The story finds a way to help the reader feel that s/he is also sifting through data and forming their own conclusions. Cross The Bridge of Deaths into 1939, and dive into cold Danish waters to uncover the secrets of the G-AESY.
One of the reviews for the book
Bridge of Deaths a compelling account of WW2 mystery This is a well-documented, detailed and compelling account of the deaths of five men on the eve of World War 2 and of the individuals driven by personal relationships and past-life regression to find the truth behind their passing. What makes the story especially fascinating is the suggestion that the men, one of whom was a British member of parliament on his way to a mysterious meeting focused on averting war, were deliberately murdered to prevent the MP from attending that meeting. The remaining men, one of whom was a Mexican businessmen and the author’s grandfather, were simply collateral damage. Although I don’t buy into past life regression or the validity of psychics, this book provided convincing arguments for the evidence presented by practitioners of these arts. Egan has done an impressive job of combining extensive archival research and psychic and past-life regression findings to create a fascinating book about the period predating World War 2.

Being a princess is hard. Especially when you’re just a little OCD.
And your twin goes missing.
Sure, Princess Eloise is Future Ruler and Heir to the Western Lands and All That Really Matters. And yes, her life is structured by Protocol and full of little “habits” that help her get through the day.

She sets out with her champion (a nervous, yammering chipmunk), her guard (the human incarnation of rectitude), and two horses (one an equine perfection, the other on a vow of silence).

But unbelief is not protection.
Going home draws her into a fight against mythical creatures, limitless power and a battle for humanity’s survival. Can Dalia balance an outsider’s knowledge and tribal wisdom to give the world a fighting chance? Or will she choose to stay blind and let the world collapse around her?

This time of year, I like to re-post the series The War Poets. Just some of the men and women who served on the front line on all sides of the conflict who fought, died or returned scarred by their experiences. If you scroll down the home page you will find them each day.
They went out at 4.a.m each morning my time, which is the coldest before the dawn, and as they would have woken in the trenches to prepare for another day of horror, bravery and sacrifice.
There is no way in the world that I would possibly compare my poetry to those extraordinary men and women who wrote their poetry following their own harrowing experiences. But I did want to add to the series with my own tribute to someone who lived and died during the First World War, and I this poem following my first visit…
