Light from Distant Stars by Shawn Smucker

This book is strange and different yet hard to put down. This is the first book I have read by this author so I wasn't sure what to expect. The story jumps back and forth between main character Cohen's childhood and his adult life. Cohen's life has been anything but easy and when he stumbles upon his father's seemingly lifeless body, the traumatic events from his past come to light.

This book is unlike anything I've read before. It's shocking and twisty yet a glimmer of hope remains beneath the surface. I can't say that this is something I would want to read again as it left me feeling sad and uneasy, but it definitely held my interest and kept me flipping the pages. The author is very talented and has an obvious gift for storytelling. Thank you so much to the author, bookishfirst, and Revell for the chance to read and review this book!
