M.C.V.Egan (aka Catalina Egan) is not a Vegan. From a very young age she became determined to solve the MYSTERY of her maternal grandfather’s death in faraway Denmark. He had died on August 15th 1939, when the passenger aircraft he was traveling to Stockholm, Sweden sunk in Danish waters, between two jurisdictions. Her search took her to Denmark, Mexico,the UK and through the unusual world of psychic, a Peruvian Shaman and past life regressions.
InBridge of Deaths, you willfollow Bill and Maggie in London 2010 as they explore the events of August 15th 1939. At the brink of World War II, an English plane crashed and sunk in Danish waters. Five deaths were reported: two Standard Oil of New Jersey employees, a German Corporate Lawyer, an English member of Parliament, and a crew member for the airline. Bill and Maggie find a it difficult reconciling the official version of events with what they have experienced in their past life regressions. Along the way they meet a woman whose grandfather was one of the victims of the crash and try to reconcile the two disparate stories.
Here’s an excerpt from the book’s introduction:
Several stumbling blocks, not the least of which was my absolute lack of knowledge about world history in 1939 (today it is only slightly better), made this a quest of eighteen years. I used many conventional sources, all of which are well documented throughout the book. I also used many unconventional sources, all of which
are also carefully documented.
The only entirely fictional characters in this book are Maggie, her parents, and her friends. Maggie came to me after a group past-life regression last September, when a pretty young woman, who looked a little like the newspaper photos of the pilot’s wife, shared what she had “seen” in her past-life regression. What she described was similar to a regression I had experienced many years before. This made me
think that by creating a fictional character out of the pilot’s wife, I could further detach my private life from the story.
All information credited to psychics and to the individual in the pilot’s past-life
regressions is as I experienced or witnessed it, unless I specifically note otherwise in
a footnote. The information I include is part of what I learned from and documented through the years; anything I did not find supported by research was not included.
I do hope that perhaps somewhere there are more people related to the story; people who are willing to fi ll in the gaps and maybe even correct the tale that spun itself very quickly after Maggie was born in my mind’s eye last September.
Today when we, as a world, hold our breath while we hope and wait to see if the changes in the Middle East will be less violent than the changes other countries have experienced in the past, I say good-bye to Maggie, the fictional character whom I named before I found the marriage record on Ancestry.com. I say good-bye
to this wonderful young woman who believes war, all war, to be inexcusable.
I hope there are many people all over the world who identify with Maggie, a pacifist who is willing to search and eager to learn about war and history, and the effect those two things have on society as a whole. I hope there are many people who are prepared to do more than hope that we as members of the same world will move on to a peaceful future and a better tomorrow.
