Helen Wilmans was active in the Mental Science movement and studied under Emma Curtis Hopkins. James Allen reviewed her book in his journal, The Light of Reason.
James Allen described this book as "...a treatise on the theory of immortality in the flesh. The author declares her unbelief in the necessity of any life other than that of the body, and regards the body as the man himself. As a result of this attitude of mind, she considers the death of the body to be a calamity, and has persuaded herself that she can defy natural decay by the power of her own personal will."
