How the Light Gets in by Jolina is the first book I have ever read by this author, but will not be the last. The way she writes about difficult topics and gets right to the bottom of a difficult topic is a gift and she does it well, especially in Christian Fiction!
This book is a beautiful story of forgiveness, grief and healing. While emotions are difficult, and I found this book to be triggering on a personal level, I also found this book to be interesting and filled with hope. This book is an emotional conflict and while I don't want to give the ending away, I enjoyed the letters and the twists that kept me reading. The story of Ruth will wreck you and also will keep you moving forward. I can't say much more without telling the complete story because this story really spoke to me.
If you are looking for a novel that is going to challenge you or one that needs to be on your reading list for 2019, this is your book! I also think this this would be a great book for discussion with a reading group and I would love to see this as book for book clubs.
