If you’re reading this letter, I’m already gone.
He told me he was going to do it, and I didn’t believe him. I told him I would follow, but he left anyway.
Sometimes, you love someone so much that living without them isn’t an option. Ty Wise was that person for me.
Maybe this is selfish. Maybe I should’ve stayed away when he asked.
Maybe he should’ve listened to what I told him.Life is full of maybes.
Do you think he can hear me now?
Little note: Lisa’s book “When It Rains” has crushed me multiple times. I love her writing and I seriously cannot wait to dive into this one. The plot sounds so mysterious but with full emotions. I’m already scared for my heart!

Length: 256 pages
From Jay Asher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why, comes a romance that will break your heart, but soon have you believing again. . . .
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.
Little note: Yes, I know what you’re thinking … “CHRISTMAS?!” Shush, it’s never too early for Christmas 😀
