Description - When Light Breaks by Patti Callahan Henry

Garnering comparisons to Anne Rivers Siddons and Pat Conroy, Patti Callahan Henry has woven her lyrical Southern voice throughout the Lowcountry landscape. Now, as two women from opposite sides of the sea meet, a tale unfolds that will draw you into the heart's remembrances... Bogged down in the stress of planning her elaborate wedding to a professional golfer, twenty-seven-year-old Kara Larson still makes time to visit an elderly woman at a nursing home to fulfill the requirements of the Palmetto Pointe Junior Society. Soon she finds herself mesmerized by ninety-six-year-old Maeve Mahoney's singsong Irish lilt as she recounts the rambling story of her first love back in Ireland. Waiting for the story to unfold in bits and pieces, Kara is driven to remember her own first love: childhood neighbor Jack Sullivan. Gradually she realizes that before she embarks on her new life, she must find out how her own story with Jack will end... -About all the things that make us worthy as human beings--integrity, honesty, and living the life you are meant to live....A triumph!---Dorothea Benton Frank -A passionate, unforgettable novel of self-discovery, regret, and the illuminating power of love.---Mary Alice Monroe
