Book Description

Mya finds it hard to believe that she has just died. She clearly remembers being in a lot of pain and a sense of panic going on around her, then nothing but a bright, comforting light and the pain quickly being replaced by a state of calm and tranquillity. But what now? Mya wants to talk to people, find out how her friends and family are, but there s no one around to help - until she suddenly finds herself chatting to Laurel.

A fun, uplifting story about love, life and everything in between! Laurel has what she sees as the dubious gift of being able to communicate with spirits, and when Mya bowls in, desperate for some answers, Laurel's life is turned upside down. Her relationship with boyfriend Dan is already in a fragile state, she's unsure about her chosen career, and now there's a bewildered, feisty young spirit getting in the way. As Mya flits around Laurel and Dan's lives, unable to control how and when she appears, unexpected psychic connections are made and the course of true love takes a detour no one could have predicted.

Product Description

From the Author

Why did I decide to write using a psychic theme?
The answer is simple. When I started writing `seriously' (with the intention of getting published) that was where my spirit guide led me. I am not a psychic and I am not a medium, BUT I come from a family which has a strong psychic trait running through it. From a young age I was also fascinated by horoscopes and the incredible accuracy of some of the most famous astrologers.

This is my first book, which was written shortly after the death of my dear mother. When she died it was a release and she chose to slip away during the early hours of the morning in hospital, when she knew we were all safely at home. That was her choice, there was no way my mother was going to step into the next world with the ones she loved witnessing those last difficult moments. But whilst at home that night I had an experience that left me with no doubt whatsoever that in those final moments she connected with me. It had a life changing effect on me and I decided to sit down and write a journal about all of the psychic connections I had experienced in my life up to that point. I was shocked to realise that it had actually started when I was quite young.

For me it's very much about `seeing is believing' and because it is now a part of my daily life, it is only natural that it should feature in my novels. So when I sat down to write the first thing that came into my head was Mya, only twenty-five years old and suddenly she sees the light ....

More About the Author

Bristol-born Linn B Halton lives in the small village of Lydbrook, which nestles on the edge of the Forest of Dean, in the UK. She resides there with her husband and feline with 'catitude'- Mr Tiggs.

Linn began writing in March 2009 and her debut novel was published in February 2011. In a recent interview Linn was asked about genres:

"From a very young age I knew romantic fiction was always going to be my genre. I am, and will always be, madly in love with love! Whether that's love of life, a partner, or the things I'm passionate about.

My stories are about love, life and real relationships - but romance is always the one thing that holds each story together. Often there's a light, psychic touch and I never dreamed I would write drawing upon my personal psychic experiences. But as my interest and understanding in the subject has grown, it is now such a part of my life that it finds its way into my fictional tales. However, what is heartening is that most of my experiences have been uplifting and it's wonderful to know loved ones are around me always. I hope it will make readers stop and wonder 'What if?'

The result is that I get a lot of mail from readers who have had similar experiences and some are sharing theirs for the first time with me. I always feel that's something rather special and for which I'm very grateful."

Love, life and beyond... but it's ALWAYS about the romance!

Linn is published by HarperImpulse and Sapphire Star Publishing.
Linn is the managing editor of Loveahappyending Lifestyle emagazine.

Is there life after death? Do you believe? Can a spirit fall in love? I ask these questions so I love to read stories that revolve around the afterlife. Touched By The Light is an engaging story of a young woman recently tossed into the confusing spirit world. Searching for answers, Mya stumbles upon Laurel who can "hear" her. Together they try to bring comfort to Mya's surviving family. During their growing friendship, Mia meets Dan, Laurel's boyfriend. A soothing friendship develops between Mya and Dan. Does it become love? Can it be love? Can these two ever be together? A worthwhile read to find out! Ms Halton caught my attention with this story...and even surprised me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Touched by the Light by Linn B Halton 4 Sept. 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a novice dead person, Mya's spirit is lost and confused until she finds she is able to communicate with Laurel. Although this is a comfort to Mya to find a connection with someone who is still alive back there, her increasing involvement in Laurel's life, and her relationships, takes us through an intriguing and sensitive story. By about page 94 I had decided on the happy ending that I wanted for Mya but could see absolutely no way of it being possible. Which, of course, leads to the totally unexpected twist about which we will not speak.

I must confess that to start with I flinched a little at the switch between characters all written in the first person. But as I read on and got used to the form, I found that Linn had managed to keep it going without confusion as to who was currently 'speaking' and it gave the reader (or me anyway) a sense of intimacy with each character.

Anyone who is not totally sceptical of some form of life after death will have asked themselves questions highlighted by this novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and Clever 19 July 2011
A great read with a lot of originality and clever twists.

The story is told from the first person perspective of ALL the main characters. At first I was concerned that I would get confused, but the author does a brilliant job of writing in distinct voices. At no point, did I get lost. In fact, there is a close, personal effect that it leaves behind. It felt real. It felt like I was the ghost traveling from one mind to the next. Very nicely done!

Also, the paranormal element of the story is shown in a way that you find yourself wondering, "could it be really like this?" It's very clever, well thought out and surprising. There are a couple of excellent plot-twists in there that makes your eyes pop out and flip that page. In the end, this is a wonderful love story.

It is hopeful and full of possibility.

I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Touched by the Light by Linn B. Halton 1 Aug. 2011
This is a psychic romance story. In the story Mya knows she is dead although she cannot believe it she remembers a bright comforting light and she is now in the afterlife, she really wishes that she had read up on the afterlife because she is confused if this is the way it is suppose to be or if she is doing something wrong. She wonders whatever happened to the angels and the clouds, she asks herself wasn't there someone who was suppose to greet her to show her the ropes?

Mya wants to talk to people and she finds that she can communicate with a girl called Laurel who has the gift of been able to talk to spirits. When Mya sees that Laurel is having problems in her relationship with her boyfriend Dan. Mya starts to think and believe that it is her mission to get Laurel and Dan back together, turning Laurels life upside down. Mya spends her time drifting between Laurel and Dan she is unable to control how and when she appears, and she no longer has any sense of time. When she is not spending time with Laurel she finds herself spending time with Dan, who she cannot talk to but Dan feels her presence, but because they cannot communicate, he does not know whom the presence is and he is already in a fragile state.

Will Mya bring Laurel and Dan back together?

Although this is a psychic romance, you do not have to be interested in the paranormal to read this book because it is not a ghost story, it is more about human emotions and feelings. What is different with this book is that through out the chapters the story is told by all the main characters from their point of view and this is really done well with excellent writing so you do not get confused or lose the plot in anyway. There are some unexpected twists in the story, which add to the story and make it an excellent feel good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A love story that has depth and soul 7 Jun. 2011
By Shazjera TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I found `Touched by the Light' to be an unusual and thought-provoking novel of love/romance and logically unexplainable connections.

Written in the first person throughout, Mya starts us off on our journey as the scene is set with the theme that flows through the most of the story. We also see the story from the perspective of Laurel and her boyfriend Dan and also Mya's sister Sadie and a medium called Grace.

Each new section of the story has a title so at no point was I confused with who was `speaking'.

This is a modern love story and Linn B Halton portrays her characters with depth by examining their emotions. We become involved not only in Laurel and Dan's relationship but also Lennie's love life (Lennie is Laurel's best friend), Grace's love life and Mya's family. We get to identify with the characters through how they express themselves. In reality, we are usually drawn to other people on a heart level because they provide something we think we lack in ourselves - they are our `mirror' and this theme is quite central to the characters.

You don't have to have any previous knowledge or belief in the spiritual world to be drawn into the story. There are explanations that will enhance your enjoyment! Even though this is quite a `deep' topic, there are a few fun moments, for example when Mya is frustrated while `being' in Dan's company.

The writing flows and we are led on to each new level at the right time. There is a balance of emphasis between `life after death' and the romance. It really is not a heavy read!

I only have one criticism .................and that's with the paper the book is printed on - it is so white that my eyesight found it hard to adjust to read anything else for a while.
