In July 1932, MGM producer and notorious nice guy Paul Bern marries the love of his life, screen icon Jean Harlow. Two months later, he is found shot to death in their Benedict Canyon home, the victim of a Hollywood cover-up that eventually portrays him in the media as a sick, impotent wife-beater.
Modern day intuitive Valerie Franich and renowned psychiatrist Adrian Finkelstein partner together in order to dispel Hollywood lore and share the true story of Harlow and Bern. Through the use of hypnotic regressions and extensive research, Franich and Finkelstein offer a glimpse into the life of the young ingénue as she makes her way in Hollywood, falls in love with the older Bern, and becomes the innocent prey of MGM boss Louis Mayer who fixes the evidence to make her beloved husband's death look like a suicide. As Harlow returns to reclaim her husband's good name and stellar reputation, she reminds everyone that love is indeed eternal.
By Love Reclaimed shares an enlightening and heartwarming look at reincarnation and the Hollywood scene during the 1930s while shedding a new light on an old mystery.

I give By Love Reclaimed: Jean Harlow Returns to Clear Her husband's Name five stars as one of the very rare books that keeps you in suspense. It is a love, crime and mystery story taking place during the Golden Age of Hollywood, and is obout the first blonde bombshell, Jean Harlow and her husband Paul Bern. They fall in love at the first sight, but they are misunderstood by the film establishment, as MGM covers up for it's own self-interest and financial reasons the very real drama of these two very good people. It mekes you join them in their odyssey of love and become their ally in confronting Hollywood establishment's bad people with their despicable acts, in order to advance themselves and in the process not hesitating a moment to kill the truth. It is an indicting manifesto of corruption at the highest levels of executive power of the film studio, that affected so tragically both Harlow and Bern. Whether fantasy or not, their return from the 1930's beyond the grave to our contemporary times to right that dreadful wrong, is anticipated by the reader and it provides a deep relief that ultimately justice will be done and the tarnished name of Paul Bern will be cleared once and for all by his beloved Jean Harlow's return... This book gives hope, that there is never too late to right a wrong and that love survives eternally

The book By Love Reclaimed is a refreshing story about the Golden Age of Hollywood.
The Love Reclaimed is a refreshing story about the Golden Age of Hollywood with, mystery, love story and with information to clear the name of Paul Bern. He is the husband of actress Jean Harlow and executive producer of MGM. Due to his death under questionable circumstance, MGM Studios at the direction of MGM Studio head, L.B.Mayer,created a cover up that is much like a Hollywood script in it's own way. Jean Harlow never spoke of the events of what happened to her husband. It appears she wanted to find a way to get his information out regarding how his life was cut short. It would be a nice idea to thing that if anything bad happened to anyone...that love would transport over time to find a way to set the record straight. The way it is written,reading this book is like watching a profoundly inspiring Hollywood movie;long after the film ended, it continues to give you a very good feeling.
As a growing body of evidence points to the reality of reincarnation as the means by which human beings learn and grow through time, one of its premier researchers, psychiatrist and author Adrian Finkelstein, and his dear friend and educator Valerie Franich, have tackled the daunting task of solving a longtime Hollywood mystery: the sudden death, allegedly by suicide, of MGM director Paul Bern, just two months after he married the love of his life, "blonde bombshell" actress Jean Harlow -- who tragically died from kidney failure five years later at the age of 26.
The 1930s was part of Hollywood's so-called Golden Age, but it was also a time when the almost unchecked power of the major studios, interwoven with Mafia money and corruption, meant that the lives of actors and executives alike were shamelessly, often brutally, controlled by their handlers. And Bern and Harlow were no exception.
In By Love Reclaimed, the mixture of mystery, biography, poignant past-life regression transcripts from sessions conducted with Franich and Finkelstein (Bern and Harlow's probable present-day incarnations), and corroborating past-life/present-life biometric measurements for Bern/Finkelstein and Harlow/Franich will captivate a diverse audience while delivering a powerfully transformational message for our time.
Finkelstein and Franich tell a story that can be profoundly comforting, even healing, for the receptive and reflective reader, male or female, who may be struggling with present-life questions about difficult relationships, unfulfilled dreams, and unresolved life challenges. As Dr. Finkelstein says with hard-won wisdom:
"The message of this book ... is loud and clear: Love your eternal self and each other, and in this way heal yourself and experience God's love, peace and joy. The daunting task remains for all of us: to shift from merely theorizing to effectively practicing the truth of our past-life discoveries and integrating them into our present-life endeavors and mission to heal ourselves and society."
