But after meeting a man who seems heaven-sent, she starts to feel she has something to live for again, and soon discovers that their connection holds far more significance than she could ever have imagined. And when Jessica strikes an unlikely bond with Alexandra Green, the two new friends are taken on an emotional journey into the world of the supernatural, where psychic mediums pass on messages from beyond the grave. What — or who — is causing the strange goings-on in Alex’s home? What secret is she keeping from Jessica? And who is the young woman who so badly needs their help? In a series of surprising twists and turns, the pieces of the puzzle finally fall into place and a mystery is unwittingly solved — with life-changing consequences for all involved.
‘Out of the Darkness’ is an uplifting tale of friendship and redemption; of love and loss. And life…after death.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
How I have loved reading this book that just took over me. It brought me to an halt as I didn’t want to miss a word of it, as it literally controlled my mind and reactions that occurred in my body. I cried and then laughed while tears were still running down my cheeks and goose bumps and the little hairs on the back of my neck rose and fell at an alarming rate. And if that wasn’t enough my continually OMG, wow and oh no! was speech that became an involuntary reaction to every chapter. There was no way that I could possibly second guess what would happen next and was just bowled over with everything, very much like real life and that is what it felt like. Real life.
One thing that you need to do is read this book with an open mind and don’t dismiss anything, go with the flow, as they say. You may even find it leaves you feeling not quite alone, but in a lovely warm glowing way. It certainly left me with a good feel factor.
This is a lovely story of how three very different woman found friendship together at a time when they were probably at their lowest. Each of them from different backgrounds with very different hardships to face but things kept happening that made their paths cross and eventually they gave into fate. It was only as these woman gradually opened up to each other that you realised just how special it all was. There are some supernatural elements in this story too which the author, Katy Hogan, explains in the back of the book..
I received a review copy of this book from the author which I have chosen to review
HERE IS A LITTLE ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Having grown up with a mother who consulted her tarot cards on a weekly basis, and who would frequently sense an other-worldly presence, it has always been perfectly natural for me to assume that there is more to this life than meets the eye. I have even experienced a few mysterious encounters myself. But it was only when I suffered the loss of a loved one that I started to question the possibility of life after death, and decided to find out more.
And so began a fascinating quest, where I met ‘ordinary’ people who claimed to have experienced the extraordinary. This is where I found the inspiration for my debut novel, ‘Out of the Darkness’. Although it’s fiction, much of the phenomena written about in the story have been experienced by me, my friends or people I spoke to during my research.
I have started work on my second novel, but when I’m not writing, you will find me keeping tabs on my teenage children or walking my dogs in the Hertfordshire countryside.
