About the Book
Shannon is out to save the world one caring act at a time. She’s stood by her best friend, Amber, through their whole lives especially when Amber lost her sight. She has an active outreach ministry to the homeless and disenfranchised. And she’s even let down her guard long enough to let a boyfriend, Justin, into her life.
Her life has settled into a pleasing routine of teaching, freelance photography work, quiet dinners with Justin, and taking Amber on treks to find new subjects for her visionary paintings.
But when a man from her past shows up, her secure world crumbles into triggered PTSD episodes that threaten everything she relies on. Will she be able to overcome these old memories, or will her past crush any hopes she had for a future?

In My Opinion
If you’ve read Hold the Light, you know Shannon is a fiercely loyal and strong woman. If you haven’t read it yet, first, go get it now and second, you’ll like Shannon here as she gets her own story.
April McGowan writes about some challenging topics that sometimes get a back rap (or are completely ignored). Homelessness and mental illness play a prevalent role in this book. It also touches on PTSD, abandonment issues, and relationships—familial, friendship, and romantic are all included.
It’s been a bit of a wait for Shannon’s story, but oh-so-worth-it. McGowan delivers another book that pulls at your emotions, makes you think, and leaves you with the hope of overcoming.
