When I was offered the opportunity to read The Light House by Jason Luke I was intrigued. Having read his erotica/BDSM and zombie books I had a feeling that new adult/contemporary romance would provide a wonderful platform to showcase the mastery of his craft. My thoughts were confirmed within the first chapter of the book. It seems that with whatever genre Jason writes, I am always guaranteed a story written with such grace and elegance. Where the words I read paint pictures that come alive within my mind. Every story Jason writes contains lessons in life, love, hope and survival. The Light House is a stunning reflection of all of these things and so much more.
Encompassing his unique and wonderful talent at writing such expressive imagery, I could not help but feel an ease of comfort overtake my senses while reading.
The Light House is a beautifully told story of two people, whose pasts haunt and dictate their lives. Connie whose fierce determination to escape the past is shrouded in fear. Knowing if she does not break away from the darkness that has become her life she will end up a shadow of her former self. Duncan is so blindsided by his past he willing submits to sadness and sorrow. Grief, anguish and a solitary life, Duncan lives within himself never allowing the light to shine down upon him.
All of the characters within this story were written with such realism. Connection to these characters was instant. Each unique unto their own, we are treated to a wonderfully diverse cast. Though some roles are small their presence enhances the storyline. They bring laughter, sadness, sorrow, hope and despair. There are characters you warm up to immediately, some make you laugh while others bring warnings and for me at least an intense feeling of dislike. As each character enters into the story it only adds depth and emotion to the journey we are taken on.
Emotions run rampant within this story. You feel sorrow, pain, loss, desperation, hurt, hope, wonderment, love, determination and salvation. The story is written with such a wonderful flow that you revel in the highs and your heart clenches in the lows. The author gently takes us up the hill only to have us tumble down wondering what will happen next.
The Light House is a story of two people living two very separate lives while unknowingly sharing the same passion. A story of letting go of the past and looking towards the future. A story of finding the person you used to be, the person you lost so long ago. A tender story of rediscovery of one’s self, hopes and dreams. A story of compassion and learning to live with what life has given and what life has taken away. A story so rich and engaging I found that I could not put this book down.
Jason Luke is an Australian man who lives on the far South Coast of New South Wales with his longtime girlfriend.
