Summary

From Jay Asher, number one New York Times best-selling author of Thirteen Reasons Why, comes a romance that will break your heart but soon have you believing in love again....

"A beautiful story of love and forgiveness." (Stephen Chbosky, New York Times best-selling author of The Perks of Being a Wallflower)

Sierra's family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon - it's a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other.

Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other.

By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: Years ago he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. But Sierra sees beyond Caleb's past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and maybe redemption. As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love.

What Light is a love story that's moving and life affirming and completely unforgettable.

I Wanted To Like This Story

I usually don't seem to end up liking books I pre-order, even though this was hyped from buzzfeed books. I'm not sure if it's the Christmas theme, the whiny narrator, or the lack of depth coming from the author who wrote 13 Reasons Why. I think I was expecting deeper characters with a deeper romance coming from Jay Asher. This book is relatively short compared to others, and I'm having a hard time finishing it. I finished 2 other books and will possibly finish 3 or more before ever finishing this one.

Christmas Book

The narrator was great. I would have liked it more during Christmas. The whole story is during Christmas time so I would have enjoyed it more at that time of year. That's my fault though. I liked this book a lot.

What Plot?

I'm giving this book 2 stars because I didn't hate it. I actually enjoyed listening to most of it. It was only when I got to the end that I realized I had been lured into a false sense of enjoyment.

Because this book was an utter waste of time.

Seriously nothing happens. I kept waiting for the twist or the climax or any kind of actual event, but alas, there was none.

Cute story; great narration

I thought this story was cute. It started off a little slow, but once Sierra met Caleb, I couldn't stop listening. The narrator was perfect for this story.
