1948 born and bred in the southern English countryside, Jules Hillyar grew receptive to the invisible side of nature and before long to his major impetus. By the time he met Valerie in 1965 he had already walked out of school, family, and conventional life to pursue psychical studies, synthesising their overall picture with that of metaphysical knowledge worldwide. In 1972 he was drawn in by Valerie to the Ashdene situation as advisor, thence remaining one of its four central participants. His alliance is solely among them in the bookâs purpose. As far as he knows from his years in the psychical field nothing like it has appeared before. Nor could anyone else have written it. He is the only person who knows what happened throughout, the one who was left its tapes, and the one whose promised role was its fulfilment.
