Whenever someone claims to be the reincarnation of a well-known historical personality, a healthy dose of scepticism is generally required. I have lost count of the number of people claiming to be the reincarnation of Jesus, for instance.
This case is absolutely not one of those.
There is a very strong likelihood that Jewelle St. James, a health-care worker from British Columbia, is the reincarnation of the nineteenth-century novelist Emily Brontë, author of Wuthering Heights.
Yet Jewelle herself, despite having written several books on her search to uncover her past lives, has been most reluctant of all to accept this, and even since coming to terms with it she has been highly resistant to disclosing anything about it. To this day, she has not made any public reference to it.
She has, however, given me permission to tell the story.
