The Light in the Hallway by Amanda Prowse
“The Light in the Hallway” is a glimpse into real-life after heartbreak, then trying to live again. Beautifully done. – Green Gables Book Reviews
Amanda Prowse has written a book that could easily be true. After years of being together, Nick was with Kerry when she took her last breath. Now, in his own grief, he needs to guide their son, Olly through his grief, too. How can Nick do this when he is hurting himself?
Nick feels like all eyes are on him, and quick to criticize, as he tries to find his way. His sister is law is negative about everything he does, his Mother-in-Law feels she doesn’t see Olly enough. Olly has gone away to school and Nick is worried about him. Soon, they are navigating how to spend the holidays together without Kerry.
Nick is lonely. His days are spent at the same old job, coming home to his cold, quiet house. Will he always be alone? Was Kerry his only chance at love? Is this his life now? Or, is there someone else out there for him, patiently waiting? Maybe things will look up in the New Year for Nick, but what about Olly?
