Allen, Grant: Recalled to Life. V1. 27-Mar-2011

Charles Grant Blairfindie Allen (February 24, 1848 – October 25, 1899) was a science writer, author and novelist, and a successful upholder of the theory of evolution.

About the book:
When Una Callingham witnessed the murder of her father she lost be memory. ç years later she has not regained her memory but recovered enough to go and look for the murderer.

Excerpt:
It may sound odd to say so, but the very earliest fact that impressed itself on my memory was a scene that took place—so I was told—when I was eighteen years old, in my father's house, The Grange, at Woodbury.
My babyhood, my childhood, my girlhood, my school-days were all utterly blotted out by that one strange shock of horror. My past life became exactly as though it had never been. I forgot my own name. I forgot my mother-tongue. I forgot everything I had ever done or known or thought about. Except for the power to walk and stand and perform simple actions of every-day use, I became a baby in arms again, with a nurse to take care of me. The doctors told me, later, I had fallen into what they were pleased to call "a Second State." I was examined and reported upon as a Psychological Curiosity. But at the time, I knew nothing of all this. A thunderbolt, as it were, destroyed at one blow every relic, every trace of my previous existence; and I began life all over again, with that terrible scene of blood as my first birthday and practical starting point.
