Ethel Matson is a sensible, semi-retired professor whose life up to this point has been concerned with the pursuit of rational, tangible knowledge and experiences. Then she starts having both strange encounters and incredibly lucid dreams. In these supposed dreams, Ethel and her enigmatic and unruly companion, Willy (whom Ethel’s husband regards as a figment of her imagination) set about exploring the core essences of ideas she’d only mildly wondered about before, like the interdependence of faith and science -- and life and death. Is her subconscious mind suddenly springing to life, or is there something more going on? Journeys of the Mind: The Amazing Adventures of Ethel and Willy, by author and retired professor Carol Edler Baumann, brings us twenty-seven interconnected episodes in the unusual experiences of Ethel Matson. As we delve into the conscious world, the subconscious world, and the world that lies between, we are faced with the questions of what is real and what is imagined, and whether reality actually matters if in the end we discover truth and everlasting love.
