Book Review: In the Blue Hour

8 May

 

Elizabeth Hall is my maiden name. ¬†I like seeing my former name on book covers ūüėČ ¬†I have also read Miramont’s Ghost and The Music of the Deep.

In The Blue Hour multi-generational grief found peace of mind and healing.  The story unfolds in the cultures of New Mexico with a compelling connection to Olalla, Tennessee.

Reference: ¬†Consulting mediums is condemned and forbidden in the Bible. ¬†Deuteronomy 18:10‚Äď11 echoes Leviticus and expands it, including diviners, sorcerers, witches/wizards, anyone who casts spells, and anyone who practices child sacrifice. ¬†This link is a concise summary from GotQuestions. ¬†https://www.gotquestions.org/what-is-a-medium.html

However, there is an engaging exchange, point/counter point to rationalize “hunches” and explain the journey. ¬†BONUS: ¬†Recommendation of Spook: ¬†Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach

Peace of mind calls for knowledge and connections in spite of 1000s of miles distance and decades of time lapse.
