Ruby died nearly one hundred years ago. She saw spirits of the dead when she was alive, and now she is dead she has become a guide who helps ghosts pass on. When ghosts start being taken by darkness instead of the light, Ruby is forced to seek help from a handsome and unwilling medium, who awakens emotions she never knew she had.
The Medium Path by Elizabeth Davies
Ghosts, are they real? Can only gifted mediums see them, or perhaps the young who haven’t learned not to believe in anything “supernatural?” Ruby died long ago, but she often saw spirits or ghosts when alive. Now she travels the earth guiding lingering spirits to their final journey into the light. But why would a ghost linger on this plane, unable to communicate or be seen? Unfinished business? Love? Fear? Not all spirits are going into the light, Ruby has discovered that some are being forced into an evil darkness, but why? Who is behind this theft? With the help of mediums and those gifted with “the sight” Ruby must seek and destroy this vile darkness to save the spirits that have been stolen. One thing she never counted on was Michael, a medium who sees her as more than just a ghost, or a dead spirit walking the earth. Is it possible for love to finally have found Ruby, is it even right to feel what she does for a man among the living? Their worlds are far apart, yet the barrier is weakening, or is it their denial of their feelings?
In spite of her confusing and seemingly wrong feelings for Michael, there are spirits to set free, spirits to send to the light and a dark force to conquer. But what if Ruby fails? Will she become another victim, herself?
The Medium Path by Elizabeth Davies is equal parts ghost story, love story and intrigue as each scene plays out in vivid detail. Ruby may technically be around 100 years old, but she died before knowing of love, friendship and closeness. Her world is full of the lost; her job is to send them on to peace. This is NOT a tale of a Higher Being, this is a tale of one ghost doing her job and caring for those she knows, never really understanding why she was never allowed to move on herself. Was it to finally experience truly feeling alive?
Elizabeth Davies hasn’t rushed her story, she has developed it carefully and completely while allowing her characters to take on lives of their own. With highly emotional moments, intriguing plot twists and a wonderful way with words, even the moments of humor are timed perfectly. A wonderful way to spend my “escape” time, falling into a fantasy where anything can happen, and it feels right!
