Cameron Macauley is a young boy in Glasgow; he lives with his single mother and his older brother. But Cameron inexplicably remembers another life before his current one. That life was on a remote Scottish island called Barra. He remembers his Barra mother and dad, his Barra brothers and sisters, and his black-and-white Barra sheepdog. He remembers living near the beach in a white house close to where planes would land. Cameron is insistent that he really lived this other life, and he longs for it terribly. His mother, Norma, does not know what to make of these strange memories. Cameron's unhappiness leads her to consult Dr. Jim Tucker, a child psychiatrist and a researcher into children's past-life memories. He accompanies Norma when she decides to take a trip with Cameron to Barra and finally learn the truth. Written by J. Spurlin
