Touched by the Light

4.15 of 5 stars 4.15  ·  rating details  ·  47 ratings  ·  16 reviews
This is a 'feel-good' story about psychic connections between people on different levels of existence and how the two worlds can become curiously entwined. Mya tries desperately to keep Laurel and Dan together, although she has no idea who they are or why she finds herself involved in their lives from 'other side'. Her efforts are often hilarious and misguided. It's all ab ...more

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 ...more

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 peo

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 ‘spe

`Dying was, quite frankly, incredibly easy.' This is the opening to Linn B Halton's Touched by The Light - and you have to admit it's an intriguing hook. It drew me immediately into the story, telling me what to expect and then going on to briefly outline poor Mya's predicament. She's finally got a point where she can see her way forward in life (and love). More importantly, she knows what she wants and has the tools to achieve it, and... wham ...suddenly she's on the other side and having to st ...more

This Psychic Romance delivers on all counts even if you don't believe in the supernatural or paranormal, life after death, spirits or anything remotely psychic. Touched by the Light draws you into the story immediately when Mya, knowing she has died, is thrust unwittingly and unwillingly into a quest to bring together two love-torn people, Laurel and Dan.

There are no ghosts to spook you, just one or two things that do go bump in the day; a door slamming, items being thrown across a room but thes
Wow, what a fantastic book! I'm thinking about the's really hard for me to classify this book. WHY? Well the story involves mediums and ghosts, and a part of me says this could be a romance with paranormal twist, but then again... The story just seems too real and there's a lovely message hidden, so another part of me would classify it as a spiritual read, book about life and hope.
Hmmm, but the point is, no matter which genre I classify it in, it's an amazing book, which without any

The story is told by several characters, but the main one is Mia. A spirit or just a soul lost in different dimension. Altough 100 precent that she is dead, she realises that she is caught between the worlds, with no sense of time... When two names don't get out of her mind, she is convinced she is on a mission to save a relationship between Dan (Daniel) and Laurel.

During her best attempts to do it, she is mentally connected to Laurel and later she almost 'haunts' Dan. The amazing part is, noone
Touched by the Light
by Linn B. Halton

Laurel had been able to see and communicate with spirits since she was a small child, so she wasn't really surprised when Mya got in touch with her. The way Mya contacted her was unusual. She spoke directly into Laurel's mind. Mya, being new at this “spirit” thing had difficulty controlling where and when she would “appear” causing a bit of chaos. She became involved in Laurel's life and when Laurel kicked Dan out, Mya felt it was her responsibility to resto
Ara Grigorian
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 i

An extraordinary tale of a group of people affected by the spiritual world. The spirit in question is Mya, trapped somewhere in the afterlife. The only person she can connect with is Laurel, who has the dubious gift of being able to communicate with dead people. As Laurel has just split from her boyfriend, Dan, Mya feels it's her mission to bring them back together again. After losing her contact with Laurel, she spends more and more time with Dan, who can 'feel' her presence and confides in her ...more
This is a really lovely, unusual qnd quirky book. I certainly didn't see one big twist coming. The characters are well defined and the story flows making it easy to read. I became really engrossed in the story and couldn't wait to find out what happened at the end. Absolutely perfect as a light summer read.
I loved the way this book challenges what you believe and makes you think about life in general. It is a real page turner as you can't wait to find out how everyone's story ends I loved the main twist too
ooh! Not really what I expected both in writing style & story. I enjoyed this book. I will write a better review when I've organised my thoughts. :-)

...So what’s this book about?
We are introduced to Mya, a smart, vital young twenty something who is finding it hard to believe that she has just died. What is she supposed to do now? She doesn’t feel like she is in Heaven or Hell, so where is she? What is expected of her? She finds herself chatting to Laurel, herself a young, woman
Nice light romance. A ghost but not a ghost story. Good characters. Told from different points of view. Free kindle edition. Liked the book but not an author I would follow. Wouldn't mind reading others like it.
Wilkie Martin
This is a good and imaginative story about the problems a young woman faces when she unexpectedly finds herself in the afterlife. It is cleverly constructed and well written with a nice romantic interplay between the characters, who are interesting and sympathetic. Just when you start to think you understand what's happening, a couple of well-timed plot twists keep you wanting to read on as the plot moves to a satisfying finale.
