Description

A fascinating trilogy of novels that delineates the afterlife--a topic that is always intriguing--as viewed from the "Spiritualist" perspective--a movement that was very strong in the 19th century and which still has adherents today. Definitely 19th century in flavor and style, but all the more charming for that.show more

Review quote

"Convinced of the viability of the Spiritualist view that a vital link to earthly life continues in the hereafter, Phelps wrote the three novels included here -- The Gates Ajar (1868), Beyond the Gates (1883), and The Gates Between (1887) -- portraying heaven as a perfected version of earthly life and the afterlife as a chance to make up for lost opportunities on earth. These works were immensely popular in Phelp's lifetime, and it is good to have them brought together in such a convenient and attractive format." -- Nineteenth-Century Literatureshow more
