STRANGER THAN FICTION, January 23, 2004
Reviewer: fenwitch from London United Kingdom What a life Janine Farrell-Roberts has lead!
Assigned to the male gender at birth; excommunicated from the Catholic priesthood for marrying; fathering daughters; championing the rights of aboriginal people as an investigative journalist; leaving a Christian monastery to shift her devotion to a pagan goddess of witches; reassigning her gender; protesting to save ancient woodland. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction.
Robust scholarship runs throughout this passionate and honest
autobiography. Farrell-Roberts has delved deep into spiritual philosophy, science and history to put her unique experience of life into context. Hers is a strong voice that both challenges and touches the heart. ==================================================================
Moving....Affecting, August 9, 2003
Reviewer: Kate from Lincolnshire United Kingdom Jani has written her story with bare boned honesty. I fell in to her footsteps and was moved by her words as she recounts her very own life journey. Deeply personal, incredibly brave. Her words touched me, I felt so much that she was sat beside me as I turned the pages of her wonderfull life. Please do not buy this book if you intend to approach it with a logical analytical mind. This book is a beautifull story of love, courage and strength peppered with gentle humour.
Brilliant, uplifting, inspirational autobioraphy!, February 13, 2003
Reviewer: Suzanne Read from Manchester, Uk Janine's story is one of personal courage, conviction, sacrifice and triumph as she journeys from Catholic Priest to Witchdom and from Fatherhood to her rebirth as the woman she was born to be.
Exceptionally well written, with many references for students of the occult and those with gender identity problems. Covering her personal journey into the Catholic Priesthood, excommunication and marriage, her family life and work for indigenous peoples the world over, her stands against beurocracy and exploitation of tribal peoples and minors, her coming to terms with being born Transsexual and finding her way to womanhood and life as a Witch and Priestess. Janine's story is both fascinating and moving, and her drive to continue to do as she felt called to, producing programmes for both the BBC and ITV the world over, writing to highlight the plight of others, campaigning to save the Earth are both uplifting and inspirational!
Definitely a must read book!
Dedicated to justice, civil rights, health of body and of world
