Beloved Brother (Amato Fratello)
A Past-Life Novel in Seventh-Century Scotland
William L. Shaffer
William Shaffer writes novels based on his past-life memories. For over 40 years, he has been a reader of the Akashic Records, the energy field within each incarnate soul that is the total sum of all past-life experience. In Beloved Brother, Mr. Shaffer writes of his experience as a monk in seventh-century central Scotland and his short-lived but highly intense relationship with an Italian knight from Venice who shows up at the monastery in time to save the monk’s life, but in doing so is almost fatally wounded. The monk is then assigned to nurse the knight back to health. The novel chronicles the extraordinary emotional, physical and spiritual relationship between the two men, exploring their karmic lessons that magnetised them together but then tore them asunder. All their drama and pain provide them with what needs to be learned, healed and transformed in order for them to continue their spiritual progress into their future incarnations.
