Singer In the Shadows: The Strange Story of Patience Worth (hardcover)
By Irving Litvag
Who was Patience Worth? She first made her presence known one torrid summer night in 1913 as three St. Louis housewives idled away the evening with an ancient occult toy. Suddenly the pointer of the ouija board moved quickly to form the words “Many moons ago I lived. Again I come—Patience Worth my name.” Patience was to “appear” for the next quarter century, to dictate some four million words, and to become one of the most bizarre psychic mysteries on record—”a riddle with startling supernatural implications according to some, an unparalleled literary puzzle, a psychological whodunit that has completely befuddled experts.” SINGER IN THE SHADOWS is her story.
Biography of an uneducated American housewife from St Louis, Pearl Curran, who channels by automatic writing a 17th century woman, Patience Worth.
