Waiting On Wednesday: Light From Distant Stars

February 27, 2019

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature that spotlights an up-and-coming release you are most excited about.

I love a good mystery. I like a book that can make me think, try to track down the who-done-it of it all. Mix and some suspense, and maybe (hopefully) a small creepy element, and the story just pops off the pages for me. 

So when I saw this title pop up on Goodreads, I added it immediately to my TBR. It looks like it will have all of the fun elements to me. Shawn Smucker is a new to me author. I can't wait to see what all his story holds. 

Waiting On:
Title: Light From Distant Stars
Author: Shawn Smucker
Publisher: Revell
Publication Date: July 16th, 2019

About the Book:
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.

What are you waiting on this week?
