Light from Distant Stars by Shawn Smucker

42075481. sy475 Light from Distant Stars

When Cohen Marah steps over his father's body in the basement embalming room of the family's funeral home, he has no idea that he is stepping into a labyrinth of memory. As the last one to see his father, Cohen is the primary suspect.

Over the next week, Cohen's childhood memories come back in living color. The dramatic events that led to his father being asked to leave his pastoral position. The game of baseball that somehow kept them together. And the two children in the forest who became his friends--and enlisted him in a dark and dangerous undertaking. As the lines blur between what was real and what was imaginary, Cohen is faced with the question he's been avoiding: Did he kill his father?

In Light from Distant Stars, master story weaver Shawn Smucker relays a tale both eerie and enchanting, one that will have you questioning reality and reaching out for what is true, good, and genuine.

My Thoughts:
Shawn Smucker's Book Light from Distant Stars has been on my reading list for sometime, so I was super excited to read this novel. This fiction story does not disappoint! This is my second read by him, but he is an amazing story teller, that I did not anticipate in this story, but loved. You will love the emotions of this story and the tale of family, grace, suspense, faith and forgiveness all in one story. Don't miss this great novel!
