My Review of There Will Come A Time by Carrie Arcos

I don’t even want to admit how many books I’ve tried to read lately only to close the cover/shutdown the Kindle.  As I walked around Barnes and Noble, I wasn’t holding out much hope of finding anything intriguing. And then I stumbled across There Will Come a Time by Carrie Arcos.There-Will-Come-a-Time

This isn’t your typical young adult novel.  The main character, Mark Santos, is struggling with the death of his twin sister.

Arcos delivers a solid, character-driven story.  She delves into the emotional depths of grief – presenting an all too believable tale of the anguish survivors often feel. There are times, your heart breaks for Mark; other times, you want to smack him.  But through it all, you’re pulling for him.  You want him to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I loved the author’s writing style.  I loved the characters as they were well-developed and had distinctive voices.

I loved the cover – particularly the lights.  A light in the darkness represents hope and ultimately, that’s what this book is about.
