Why did I love this book?
The Midnight Library is a book of Literary and Visionary Fiction that uses relatable characters faced with profound spiritual dilemmas.
The author explores the space between life and death as I have often imagined the Last Judgment to be; i.e., not a condemnation of one’s life against absolute values, but a review with options. What if I had done this instead of that—the exploration of alternate realities and the lessons they would render, or not.
All of this overseen, not by an angry, finger-pointing God, but by a version of ourselves. In this case that version is a librarian who invites the protagonist to explore, even live out other choices in parallel time and space.
As in my stories, Haig uses a sampler of spiritual law in alignment with what we now know about quantum possibility. We live many lives! We are present on many planes in many dimensions!
Haig’s library is a version of the Theosophic Akashic Record, where all is recorded, understood, and sometimes even malleable. By taking this journey with a relatable contemporary heroine, the author provides us with a vehicle to take the journey ourselves.
