  Good morning my peeps well it is now winter here on the prairies. Woke up to snow and blowing winds a great day to snuggle down with a good book and some hot chocolate . Today I have a book from a new author to me  LIGHT AMONG THE SHADOWS by Jennifer Leigh Pezzano. 

                           BOOK BLURB 

 “What I had done was extreme, but like a wild animal stuck in a trap, I knew the only way to survive was to relinquish my own limb. It was the last frantic vestige of my attempt to keep on living, despite there being nothing left to live for. I was hollowed out. Only tender bruised bone remained as I followed the endless white line of the highway.”

Lara is running from a fractured marriage, and an unfathomable loss that consumes her.
Drawn to the beautiful, open expanse of sky and the possibility of a new life, Lara finds herself working on a secluded property in Montana caring for horses. There she meets Peter, a man trapped in the darkness of his disability and closed off from the world around him.
Together, they forge a connection that is tender and fervent as the walls they have built around themselves begin to crack. But can two broken people truly find healing in each other? Or will the wounds they carry be too deep to repair?
Light Among the Shadows is a journey of love and redemption, of choices that define us, and the delicate dance between the past that holds us back and the future that beckons us forward.

                    MY REVIEW
  Laura is running away from a marriage that has suffered the biggest tragedy that a family could have . Her husband is cold and abusive and she just can't take it anymore . So she runs and runs to Montana . Where she starts working on a horse ranch for Peter who has lost his sight and has closed himself off to the world around him.  While working together they find a connection to each other that is sweet and tender but will their pasts keep them from finding out what can truly be the best thing that they both want and need . 
  This is such a good book the characters are so complex . We meet them both at the lowest points of their lives . Laura is running from herself basically . She has been through so much trauma but she is stronger then she even knows . There are moments through out the book you just want to wrap her up in a blanket and hug her and tell her everything will be ok . We do see her come out of her past and wow when she does she really blossoms and grows . Peter well he has been through his own type of hell and he seems to be so closed off .Under all the sadness Peter is one sexy cowboy , who really helps bring Laura out of her shell and treats her like a lady even when they butt heads . Teaching her how to two step and helping her cook . They really grow to love and appreciate each other . There is another character or should I say characters , the horses and they are some beautiful animals that really do help to heal both Peter and Laura . 
  This is one of those books that will have you up all night reading . The characters are great and the story is one of redemption and a second chance at love . The author takes us on a ride of emotions through out the book . The story is almost like a Hallmark movie, I said almost there are some sizzling sex scenes and the f bomb is dropped a time or two. This is one of those books that you will get into and get lost in the pages and love each character .There were a couple of spots I will say did lag a bit but over all this book is a sweet read that will heal your heart and make your day . So check it out you will not be disappointed .
