Oh my God, I can't believe it! Doris Stokes is one of my most favorite people in the whole world. I read her book "Voices" so many times I lost count. I seldom read one more than twice, but I won't part with it. Thank God her father thought she was special, but her mother was thinking of committing her to a mental asylum. She could actually see spirits, and one evening, during a presentation, she saw a man (spirit) acting confused wandering around the crowd, and she asked him who he was looking for. He came up with a name, which she related to the audience and a woman claimed to be the one Doris was looking for. The man had told Doris his his name, and although all that was correct, the woman said it couldn't be true because it was her husband and he was back at the hotel in bed reading a book. Long story short - the woman's husband had a sudden heart attack after his wife left to see Doris Stokes, knew she was there, and apparently came looking for her after he died. There is more evidential mediumship in that book than there would be in 20 books. No, she isn't well known in America and any time I mentioned her name, I was met with a blank stare, but she was easily one of the best mediums who ever lived. You are the only person I know who is even aware of her, which I find absurd, but that is likely because you live in the UK, and she captured everyone's heart over there. In addition to being a great medium, she was friendly, funny, and kind. I'll have to look at Amazon to see what they have to say about this new book. Since she died quite a while ago, I'm surprised but pleased to find that there is actually a new book out about her. She is someone who should never be forgotten.
