Story of Light, The
To understand yourself is to know the truth about all. One person's quest to discover the true meaning of life.
A faint echo of the past, a memory crossing the mists of time, was Bridget's first clue of a life she once lived. The first step of the journey to understand the most pondered enigma of all time, life. Bridget's purpose is to find that spiritual talisman sought by people of all ages, the Philosopher's Stone or Holy Grail. Dependent on her success is her own salvation and that of the world. Using the accumulated wisdom of five millennia of human thought, together with 21st-century science, Bridget must learn the true nature of herself, life, and that vast being known by scientists as the Cosmos and the religious as deity, reconciling the fundamental paradoxes of life and death, good and evil, science and God. She undertook the quest before, as an Iron Age priestess. Now, history is repeating itself. The world again descends into chaos and Bridget must walk The Path once more.

The Story of Light is a wonderfully intricate story of a reincarnated soul in the person of a scientist and the awakening of that scientific mind to explore the metaphysical truths of how the universe works. Hannah Spencer has read widely in order to put this trove of information together and used her skills as a story teller to present it in an exciting and gripping way. There are two stories, one ancient and one in modern times, each following the spiritual journey of a woman. The reader is drawn into the very real scientific mind of Brig as she confronts and combats her scientific knowledge with New Age teaching which is revealed to her step by step as she realizes she plays a significant role in the future of the Earth. Bit by bit she realizes she has been on this path before. This book is full of ritual both ancient and modern, explanations of the planetary spheres and other intriguing ancient teachings. Read about the Green Man of Earth, the Holy Grail and the One purpose of all religions of the Earth. A fascinating read and highly recommended to those interested in ancient rites, modern new age, science and religion and human spiritual experience on the quantum level. Hannah has proved herself as an able researcher and novelist and she should write more. 5 stars ~ Jim Murdoch, author of the Dreams and Visions series , Goodreads
This is both an old tale and one of current importance. PC member Hannah Spencer asks how we can live our Soul's purpose, staying true to ourselves and live this life well. The author manages to incorporate all the important spiritual lessons in a story of a modern woman, a scientist, trying to reconcile her spiritual awakening and memory of a past life thwarted by fear, with her fast emerging new consciousness. What could be a familiar story becomes a page turner of spiritual adventure. The wisdom behind the writing is evident as you find yourself on a journey with the heroine asking yourself what you would do under the same circumstances. I recommend this book not only because it is a good read but because it is a great reminder to us all to put our spiritual wisdom to action. ~ Lynn Forrest, Parallel Community
I found this to be a well crafted, interesting, entertaining and informative work of fiction. The subject matter of this novel is not my normal fare, so I was a little out of my comfort zone reading this and was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying the book for the books sake. I look forward to reading Hannah's future works. ~ , Amazon
The Story of Light is overall a delightful read which transfers the reader into the Iron Age. Back into the mists of time where questions were asked and answers were discovered concerning Magic and the mysteries of life and how such knowledge can become a powerful tool of understanding. Indeed each generation of humanity rediscovers for themselves something similar as they themselves may choose to undertake such a journey. Fictional or truth, the reader will need to decide the answers to this question. ~ Druidic Dawn, Aontacht Magazine
when I started to read “The Story of Light” - straight in at the beginning of the story. I didn’t read the prologue or even the “blurb” as I wanted the story to unfold before me and it did, beautifully. So I met the sceptical main character Bridget as she started telling me about the dream she had one night, of a far away (from her waking life) place, a land where she felt at ease, at home and part of. The dream stayed with her, and when Simon, her boss called her into his office to tell her that “times were hard and cuts had to be made” she accepted redundancy and got on a train, and began a new journey, learning to trust her intuition instead of listening to her doubting mind set. I travelled on the journey with her, learning things about ancient writings and theories on the way. Science, myth and legend all supporting each other as she walked her path, and as a not very academic person, the way that the scientific things were explained through the conversations of the characters, actually helped a lot! (I don’t really do text books!) The Story of Light, kept me reading, I believe they are called “page turners”. The first of the two nights that it took me to read it, was only halted by the fact that my body was telling me I needed to sleep. ~ Suzanne Thomas, editor of Tooth and Claw, British Druidry Order, Tooth and Claw issue21
