Rating : 5++ Stars
My first memory was of a slap, hard across the face: the sting on my cheek and the jarring of my bones as I slammed back into my bed. It was my dad who had hit me. I had been four. Most of my memories were much of the same and no one ever saw, no one ever fought to help, no one ever cared.
Then we moved. My new neighbor cared, rescued the twelve-year-old I had been from a beating. Always thought I’d suffer the nightmare alone, I was wrong. Mace Donati saved me that day in all the ways a person could be saved.
And his daughter, Mia, she became the friend I had always wanted, my conscience when my own faltered, the light that led me home when I had lost my way. The girl who grew into the only woman I would ever love.
But when you realize you’re more like your father than the good people who took you in and gave you a home, the only way to return their kindness is to let them go. I let them go, got so far lost in the shadows I couldn’t remember who I was anymore.
Mia never gave up on me. She fought for me, kept the light on so I’d find my way back.And when I did, life threw us a curveball. I had to hurt Mia in order to save her.
But when my past comes back to haunt me and I almost lose her, I’m ready to fight for her…fight to find a way back into her heart while keeping the demons from my past from finishing what they started.
Every time I open a new book of L.A. Fiore, I am again surprised how she manages to weave a story around her readers like a fairytale.
You cannot help but simply crave more from her.
There are not big hidden secrets to reveal or whiplashes to endure, no misunderstands, great twists or turns like other authors use to capture the readerâs attention.
It is just the simple beauty of letters turing to words. The right collection of them at the right moment.
Yet there is nothing simple about this âHis Light in the Darkâ, her newest novel.
I think her biggest secret is that she found some sort of magical formula with which she can time travel.
Already in âA Glimpse of the Dreamâ, she proved that she could make 10 years pass like an Blink of an eyeâ¦ but with âHis Light in the Darkâ she excelled herself once again.
She makes it seem so easy and effortless to write a book that covers such a long period in time.
Often I have seen other authors trying and failing to keep the readerâs attention while trying this, so I can only assume that she has a magical formula for it.
I refuse to give away any spoilers and anything you need to know you could read in the Blurb of the Book â so why should I repeat that here.
Mia and Cole are such wonderful characters that the reader cannot help but love them.
The book is told from both perspectives, but not just alternating as you normally find it in books, instead you always will find the other persons PoV just when you need to hear it, which also seems to be magic.
Read this book and if you LOVE it (yes love â I will not even consider writing LIKE) â than I promise you â you also need to read âA Glimpse of the Dreamâ and vice versa.
