Today’s book review features
A Flicker of Light by Katie Powner.
Twenty-one-year-old Bea never expected to move back to her hometown in Montana, especially not as a college dropout with a husband in tow and a baby on the way. She insists the stay at her dad’s is only temporary, until she can get back on her feet. But the truth is, she has no idea what to do now.
Mitch Jensen is thrilled to have a full house again, though he’s unimpressed by Bea’s greenhorn of a husband. Mitch hopes to convince Bea to return to school, but she’s changed since her mom died. Everything has changed. How will he take care of everyone all by himself?
Grandma June is good at telling stories . . . and keeping secrets. But she can’t hide that her mind is going much longer. If she doesn’t tell the truth about her past before her memories fade away, someone she loves will suffer. But if she does, the lives of three generations of the Jensen family will never be the same.

A Flicker of Light by Katie Powner is a general fiction novel from Bethany House Publishers.
I rarely read fiction without romance these days, but I loved Katie Powner’s first book The Sowing Season so I picked up A Flicker of Light. Of course, since it’s not my typical genre, I put off reading it. But with the author’s third book, Where Blue Skies Begin, releasing last month, it was time to read A Flicker of Light. And now I’m wondering why I waited so long.
A Flicker of Light is an amazing story! I began it one night and suddenly I was two-third of the way through and past my bedtime. I didn’t want to put it down. The characters and writing tone drew me in until I was wrapped up in the story. Honestly, I didn’t want the story to end. I cared about the characters and wanted happiness for them.
The topics addressed in the story aren’t easy ones, but they are real life ones. Like aging parents, job loss, and getting pregnant in difficult circumstances. This is a book that will appeal to readers in multiple stages of life.
If you’re looking for a story that is real and touching, definitely try A Flicker of Light. Now I can’t wait to read Where the Blue Sky Begins. Keep an eye out for my review within the week!
