WOW! This book blew me away. This was a book about true love, forgiveness, and second chances. Lucy and Fisher met as young kids; as teenagers they fell in love and got married. Fisher was a Marine that had served five tours overseas, and Lucy ran the inn on Fisher Island.
When Fisher returned, suffering from a severe case of PTSD, he had a full blown panic attack and all hell broke loose. This book was full of ups and downs. It gave some insight into what a lot of our soldiers went through when they came home from war. Lucy and Fisher’s love story was not perfect. In this book, we got to see their struggles, their highs and lows.
I will give warning: reading this book, you will need a box of tissues.
Lucy in the sky full of diamonds.
I don’t even know where to start…I love Tara’s writing, she never ceases to amaze me with the words that come out of her. Fisher’s Light was no exception. The bond that Lucy and Fisher had was unbreakable, even though neither realized it.
Being raised in a military family, I understood how hard it was for Lucy. On the flip side, I got where Fisher was coming from in the need to serve his country and his brothers. The thing that killed me though, was he felt she was made of glass and he wouldn’t/couldn’t open up and share what was going on with her. It never had to be graphic detail, but his wife was there for him, but he didn’t give her a chance.
I felt as though the time apart after their divorce they both did a lot of maturing. They needed the time away from one another to grow on their own. Yes, I know they had years apart when he was deployed but that wasn’t the same. Lucy needed to mature, realize she could be her own person and do things for herself, as hard as they might be. Fisher needed to sort through his own crap to be the man he needed to be.
In the end Fisher saw the light, Lucy.
