I thought this book was decent. I liked the first one a bit better but this finished up the story between Clay and Maggie. It is in dual perspective which I liked because I liked reading what Clay was thinking. What was going on in that head of his when he was going through his darkest times and through his better days. I think the first book should have been in dual perspective as well, but it wasn’t.
Now that the story is done, it definitely shows what it’s like for two people who are deeply in love, to go through something so tough for both sides. The person with the illness is definitely not the only one going through it. That person needs to have people around them that will love and support them no matter what and that is what Maggie does. No matter what is thrown at her, she is always by Clay’s side showing him that he is not alone. You really come to find out who your true friends and family are when you are going through a mental illness like Clay is. There are people that will love you and there are people that just can’t deal with the sacrifices and consequences that surround them.
All in all, I think this dualogy had a great story-line and meaning and I definitely recommend it. I like Ms. Walters writing and I will be picking up her other work.
Light in the Shadows
Find You in the Dark
A. Meredith Walters
March 26 2013
In the bestselling sequel to Find You in the Dark, A. Meredith Walters continues the emotional story of Maggie, Clay, and the power of unconditional love.
How do you keep going when you feel like your life is over?
Maggie never thought she’d see Clay again. So, she attempts to put her life back together after her heart has been shattered to pieces. Moving on and moving forward, just as Clay wanted her to. Clay never stopped thinking of Maggie. Even after ripping their lives apart and leaving her behind to get the help he so desperately needed. He is healing…slowly. But his heart still belongs to the girl who tried to save him.
When a sudden tragedy brings Maggie and Clay face-to-face again, nothing is the same. Yet some things never change. Can the darkness that threatened to consume them be transformed into something else and finally give them what they always wanted? And can two people who fought so hard to be together, finally find their happiness? Or will their demons and fear drive them apart for good?
The thing about love is that even when it destroys you, it has a way of mending what is broken. And in the shadows, you can still see the light.
