Carving The Light - Sue Maynard
Haunted by the loss of their parents in a tragic car crash years before, three women now harbour dark secrets from one another - secrets which threaten to tear the remains of their family apart.
Samantha, fearing that coming out to her older sisters would mean losing them altogether, fights the spectre of something even deeper, which has now begun to push its way to the surface. Julie, attempting to conceal her renewed battle with cancer, worries that her sisters will learn the truth that ended her marriage. And Emily, a gifted student who dropped out of college to raise her younger siblings, wrestles with perhaps the biggest secret of all. She knows what really happened the night their parents died.
As the sisters gather for Thanksgiving, and the fifteenth anniversary of that horrible night looms, long-hidden secrets threaten to spill out into the open. The women must face their fears and learn that their greatest strength lies in their love for one another, even as tragedy lurks nearby, waiting to strike a second time.
CARVING THE LIGHT is a story about love, loss, and the redemptive power of forgiveness. It depicts the strength, humour, and heartache of characters who are fully realized, while demonstrating the lengths to which some people will go to protect the ones they love from a difficult truth.
