A Flicker of Light


Secrets are like pennies. Everybody's got one, even the poorest among us.

For generations, the Jensens have raised their families in the small Montana town of Moose Creek, where gossip spreads faster than the wind. Yet some secrets need to be told.

When twenty-one-year-old Bea discovers she's pregnant on the heels of her husband losing his job, she's forced to admit she needs help and asks her dad for a place to stay. But past resentments keep her from telling him all that's going on.

Mitch Jensen is thrilled to have a full house again, though he's unimpressed with Bea's decisions: dropping out of college, marrying so young--and to an idealistic city kid, of all things. Mitch hopes to convince Bea to return to the path he's always envisioned for her, but she's changed since her mom died. And he refuses to admit how much he's changed, too, especially now that he might be losing his mother as well.

Grandma June is good at spinning stories, but there's one she's never told. Now that her mind is starting to fade, her time to tell it is running out. But if she reveals the truth before her memories are gone forever, the Jensen family will never be the same.

"Powner will be the next big star in Christian fiction."--Library Journal starred review

My thoughts: How does Katie Powner pack so much emotion into one story? I felt the pain and loss of Mitch and Bea as they deal with losing Grandma June slowly, the mixed emotions of expecting your first child through Bea, the grief of losing a parent, and struggling to make a go of things after a setback with work. I loved the characters! The yare written in such a way that many of them become friends over the course of the story. This is a richly written story that spans 3 generations. I highly recommend picking up a copy!
