How the Light Gets in by Jolina Petersheim
"Compellingly woven by Jolina Petersheim's capable pen, How the Light Gets In follows a trail of grief toward healing, leading to an impossible choice--what is best when every path will hurt someone?" --Lisa Wingate, New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours
From the highly acclaimed author of The Outcast and The Alliance comes an engrossing novel about marriage and motherhood, loss and moving on.
When Ruth Neufeld's husband and father-in-law are killed working for a relief organization overseas, she travels to Wisconsin with her young daughters and mother-in-law Mabel to bury her husband. She hopes the Mennonite community will be a quiet place to grieve and piece together next steps.
Ruth and her family are welcomed by Elam, her husband's cousin, who invites them to stay at his cranberry farm through the harvest. Sifting through fields of berries and memories of a marriage that was broken long before her husband died, Ruth finds solace in the beauty of the land and healing through hard work and budding friendship. She also encounters the possibility of new love with Elam, whose gentle encouragement awakens hopes and dreams she thought she'd lost forever.
But an unexpected twist threatens to unseat the happy ending Ruth is about to write for herself. On the precipice of a fresh start and a new marriage, Ruth must make an impossible decision: which path to choose if her husband isn't dead after all.
About The Author
What a roller coaster of emotions throughout this read, rooting for one and then the other, and most you don’t see coming.
This is a book that once you have consumed it, you now want to reread and savor more slowly.
From the beginning the author has the character showing love and compassion to those less fortunate, and thus for this couple they have their first child within days of their marriage.
The love of a mother for her children abounds here, and thus the center for the story. Sacrifice, but keep on reading, surprises abound.
Make sure to read the Author’s Notes at the end, you can see how she writes with such compassion and love.
I received this book through the Publisher Tyndale, and was not required to give a positive review.
