Out Of Print... This is no ordinary life-story. In it, the widow of Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding not only describes her life as a child, her upbringing and her coloratura career as wife of the man who masterminded the Battle of Britain, but demonstrates how, from a very early age, the developed art affinity with other orders of existence and levels of consciousness. It also deals logically and convincingly with her unshakable commitment to vegetarianism, humanitarianism, anti-vivisection and the welfare of all animal life. Even more startling, Lady Dowding tells how, as a little girl, she became physically aware of the man who was to become her second husband Lord Dowding. She relates the anguish of learning as a young mother that her first husband, Max Whiting, had been killed when his Lancaster Bomber was shot down during the Second World War. In a humorous, intelligent and easy-readable style, Lady Dowding outlines the tremendous influence upon her life of her mother; her beliefs in astrology, spiritualism and Theosophy. She tells of her mothers amazing powers as a healer, seer and exponent of other psychic abilities. She describes how she became a vegetarian and has found that it has improved and sustained her physical appearance, liveliness of mind and general health. She reveals how she came to found her world-famous.. but not always popular Beauty Without Cruelty movement, an organization dedicated to curtailing the indiscriminate exploitation of wildlife for such items as perfumes. fur coats, cosmetics and other luxuries. She modestly recounts her brave campaign against the cruelties perpetrated upon animals under the mantle of research.
