As the Light Fades



Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for As the Light Fades by Catherine West, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

High Res-As the Light Fades 
Title: As the Light Fades 
Author: Catherine West
 
Release Date: September 10, 2019
 
Genre: Contemporary Fiction

Sometimes we’re placed in the strangest of circumstances for the most important reasons.



After her carefully constructed life crumbles, Liz Carlisle finds herself back on Nantucket, picking up the pieces. With the family estate under renovations, the solitude she craves seems out of reach.



Matthew Stone intends to steer clear of his new tenant. She’s carrying a load of baggage, but as long as she pays the rent, he’ll let her be. He’s got enough to deal with caring for his wayward niece, Mia.



Liz doesn’t have time for teenagers and her track record with men is abysmal, but an unlikely friendship forms between the three.



When her former boyfriend is charged with assault, Liz is called to testify against him. But he knows the darkest secrets of her life—secrets she’d hoped to keep buried forever, and he’s ready to reveal them. Telling the truth is the right thing to do, but it may cost her everything she’s worked so hard for, and all she’s come to love.



My thoughts: Another great story by Catherine West! One the outside, this story might look like a light summer read. Don't let the cover fool you! The story deals with some intense subjects, like domestic abuse, Alzheimer's, sexual abuse, and addiction. When Liz returns to Nantucket to escape an abusive relationship, she gets more than she bargains for with her father's health declining and a chance encounter with a teen going through a rough time. As she gets to know Mia, the relationship helps her to see how she cannot continue to cower due to her ex. I like that this story is told through different view points and thought that Catherine does an excellent job of dealing with tough subjects. I love the message of this book! If you are looking for a good, end of summer read, I highly recommend picking this one up!
I received this book through Just Read tours. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
