This is the story of James Leininger, who-- a little more than two weeks after his second birthday-- began having blood-curdling nightmares that just would not stop. When James began screaming out recurring phrases like, "Plane on fire! Little man can't get out!" the Leiningers finally admitted that they truly had to take notice.
When details of planes and war tragedies no two-year-old boy could know continued-- even in stark daylight-- Bruce and Andrea Leininger began to realize that this was an incredible situation. SOUL SURVIVOR is the story of how the Leiningers pieced together what their son was communicating and eventually discovered that he was reliving the past life of World War II fighter pilot James Huston. As Bruce Leininger struggled to understand what was happening to his son, he also uncovered details of James Huston's life-- and death-- as a pilot that will fascinate military buffs everywhere.
In SOUL SURVIVOR, readers are taken for a gripping ride as the Leiningers' belief system is shaken to the core, and both of these families come to know a little boy who, against all odds and even in the face of true skeptics, harbors the soul of this man who died long ago.
Soul Survivor is written with such honesty to the Leiningers conflicting feelings that no matter what you feel about the subject matter, reincarnation or past lives, you must appreciate what the family went thru. A mother's fear for her child as he has these terrible nightmares, that are worse than any night terrors so common at his young age. A father's total disbelief and anger at even the suggestion that his son is somehow reliving past memories... But as we read of 2 year old James Leiningers unbelievable knowledge of people and places he had no connection to, there is also an amazing detective story. As the Leiningers begin a search into the lives of the WW II pilots and men who shared a common story on the Natoma Bay a USS aircraft carrier and at Iwo Jima, in order to prove or disprove what their young son was recounting, their research saved a part of history that may have been lost forever. Thru interviews, genealogy research, and a lot of phone calls Andrea & Bruce put a human face to what may have been characterized as just another episode in US history. This was a fascinating story! Well written and engaging. The WW II history written about was so interesting too! And I enjoyed watching the pieces all fall into place as the story unfolded.
