“The hair on the back of her neck went up, a feeling as if she were being watched. From the depths of the porch up ahead, the tinkling of chimes filled the air. Elise stopped and turned slowly. Her eyes scanned the black silhouettes of the trees surrounding her.” In The Blue Hour

In IN THE BLUE HOUR (Lake Union Publishing), by Elizabeth Hall, Elise is suffering intense grief after the death of her husband. She believes she’s responsible, because she saw the car accident in her dreams and didn’t tell Michael in advance. Elise embraces both, Native American wisdom she grew up with and the world of psychics and seers. She believes his spirit may be with her in the form of a raven.

When Celestina, a tarot-card reader suggests she take a journey to an address found in Michael’s jacket, Elise first attends a séance. Afterwards, she leaves New Mexico on a cross-country trek to Tennessee, following clues and hoping to find answers.

She hires Tom Dugan to drive her in Michael’s old truck. He’s a non-believer who has been working for Celestina. Tom, an engineer and scientist doesn’t believe in psychics or mediums, drives while Elise navigates at the leading of the spirit world, in an attempt to unravel her husband’s message. At the end of IN THE BLUE HOUR, Elise, in her state of sadness, and readers, are rewarded with a highly unexpected reunion.

IN THE BLUE HOUR was quite different anything I’ve read. I was intrigued to learn about Native American culture, folklore and the world of psychics and mediums. I enjoyed the pacing of the story and how I gradually got to know the characters. Elizabeth has a subtle talent in the method she creates her characters. I was reading along and then there was a moment when they visually “appeared” in my mind, fully developed. It was as if I was “watching” the book be created. I’m curious to read more of Elizabeth Hall’s work.

  1. Yes, I have had both. My premonitions come in the form of dreams. I also visited a psychic once and determined that she was a fake. I do not believe they are all fakes…..I “see” some things and I am not fake. I’m usually more surprised by the things I don’t see.

  2. I have had dreams which were real. Premonitions of the future, events, things which happened in life and this has been going on ever since I was young. I felt and knew about things which were going to take place.

  3. The way you describe the story appearing in your mind, watching it be created, is something I’ve never experienced, and I’m very envious! It sounds like a very interesting experience.

    Thanks for being a part of the tour!
