This glacially paced account of the author's regression to a previous medieval lifetime in which she learns ancient mysteries follows Medicine Woman and other reports of Andrews's past lives. Guided by two Indian shaman women, Agnes Whistling Elk and Ruby Plenty Chiefs, the narrator takes up, in ``Dreamtime,'' the life of a young English noblewoman, Catherine, as she is taught by a crone she calls Grandmother about the women of the Wyrrd, who long predate Western culture and worship the ``firstness of women.'' Catherine/Andrews learns mental skills such as healing, movement out of the body and communication with animals. She also meets a young nobleman who refuses her love to retain his position in his current lifetime, leaving the narrator to find her own salvation. Reading like historical romance, this will be snapped up by Andrews's large following. $40,000 ad/promo; author tour. (Oct.)
