About the Book
Librarian Emma Baker, a young and childless widow, believes her dream to build a family is over. It’s been two years since a student accidentally stabbed Emma’s husband to death, and her grief has stifled any interest in romance—until she meets Pastor Luke Davis. But when Emma learns Luke is counseling her husband’s killer fresh out of jail, her temper gets in the way.
Meanwhile, Emma discovers twelve-year-old Harley, abandoned by her drug-addict mother, hiding in the library, and takes the girl in as her foster mom. Then a young mother is made homeless by an apartment fire, and Emma opens her home again. One person and one prayer at a time, Emma begins to discover hope.
In My Opinion
In her debut novel, Shelia Stovall invites readers into the charming Kentucky town of Weldon, where the grapevine is alive and well, but the townspeople gather together when needed.
Emma Baker has a good heart, but it’s been hurt, and she struggles with anger toward the person responsible. When a young teenager enters her home, Emma’s dream of filling her large home with family becomes a reality, but there are plenty of bumps in the road ahead.
Every Window Filled with Light drew me into the quaint setting with true Southern hospitality. I rooted for (most) every character that stepped onto the page. As each person struggles with their past and their pain, God’s love prevails. A story of forgiveness, hope, and finding family, this story left me satisfied yet wanting more. I’m rooting for Casey’s story soon.
