I guess this is it, huh? After fourteen years together, starting a life of our own on this island, five deployments and countless letters I’ve written you through it all, I finally go out to the mailbox and see something I’ve always dreamed of: an envelope with your handwriting on it. For one moment, I actually thought you’d changed your mind, that all the awful things you said to me were just your way of coping after everything you’d been through. I was still here, Fisher. I was still here, holding my breath, waiting for you to come back even though you told me you never would. You always said you’d find your way back to me. Out of all the lies you’ve told me, this one hurts the most. Enclosed you will find the signed divorce papers, as requested.
I hope you find what you’re looking for. I’m sorry it wasn’t me.
To get the ending they want, Lucy and Fisher will have to go back to the beginning. Through the good and the bad, they’ll be reminded of why they always made their way back to each other, and why this time, one way or another, it will be the last time.
This is an epic love story, you can read 50 other reviews that will tell you that very thing, and I agree with them 100%. I loved the intense love story between the two main characters. This in a way is your typical second chance love story but then again, Sivec just does a beautiful job with this book.
This book also dealt with PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). The author did a very good job describing and portraying the feelings of the disorder. This epidemic is effecting way too many of our men and women in uniform and almost nothing is being done to help them, or even to determine if they have PTSD, in the first place. I hope in some small way (or big) that this great love story will help someone! Tara Sivec needs to be acknowledged, for writing such a thought provoking book with a socially relevant subject.
I give Fisher's Light 5 stars
