Marie Force’s Light After Dark is a fun read that makes you feel as if you are back among old friends.
This is a book that deals with self discovery, family, acceptance, forgiveness and love. Watching Mallory embark on this “Summer of Mallory” was so refreshing. Usually we see this type of thing with someone really young, just out of school and ready to figure life out. But reading this through Mallory’s eyes was so perfect for me. She had been settled in her life, comfortable, well-established — until life threw her some curveballs. Many of us have been in similar situations. Where everything you have known is all of a sudden flipped on its head. And you are faced with all those decisions on what to do now, where to go and really how do you feel about it all! Mallory, she decides to head to Gannett Island to visit her family while she figures things out. Bt once she is there she finds a lot more than just her family… she starts to find the answers to a lot of these questions.
I really enjoyed watching Mallory work through everything throughout her summer on the Island. I also love the feeling of family and friends that you get when you read these books. The cast of characters are woven so well throughout the story that it makes me want to go visit and be welcomed into their fold.
