THE LIGHT THROUGH THE LEAVES by @glendyvanderah is a beautifully written story about love and hope and second chances as well as the healing power of forgiveness all set in the most stunning nature settings.

Thank you to @tlcbooktours and @amazonpublishing for the chance to read and review this emotionally charged book. This is not an easy or light read but worth every single heartbreaking moment. Brilliantly written!

Synopsis:

In a moment of crisis, Ellis Abbey leaves her daughter, Viola, unattendedโ€”for just a few minutes. But when she returns, Viola is gone. A breaking point in an already fractured marriage, Violaโ€™s abduction causes Ellis to disappear as wellโ€”into grief, guilt, and addiction. Convinced she can only do more harm to her family, Ellis leaves her husband and young sons, burying her desperate ache for her children deeper with every step into the mountain wildernesses she treks alone.

In a remote area of Washington, a young girl named Raven keeps secrets inside, too. She must never speak to outsiders about how her mother makes miracles spring from the earth, or about her father, whose mysterious presence sometimes frightens her. Raven spends her days learning how to use her rare giftsโ€”and more importantly, how to hide them. With each lesson comes a warning of what dangers lie in the world beyond her isolated haven. But despite her motherโ€™s cautions, Raven finds herself longing for something more.

As Ellis and Raven each confront their powerful longings, their journeys will converge in unexpected and hopeful ways, pulled together by the forces of nature, love, and family.
