Book Description

March 26 2010
The Collins sisters have secrets. United by a tragic occurrence in their youth, the three women, now well into adulthood, struggle to find a sense of balance, both with one another, and within themselves. Each, however, carries the weight of an enormous personal burden - all different, unknown and hidden from the other two - which affects all of their lives in ways none of them have yet begun to realize. When tragedy threatens to strike a second time, the three sisters must find a way to face their demons and learn that their greatest strength lies in their love for one another, before the tenuous fabric of their family is torn apart forever.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sisters, Connected or Not June 2 2011
By Eileen Granfors - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sue A. Maynard's "Carving the Light" tells the story of three sisters, each with a secret from the others, and each with a load of guilt after the parents are killed in a car accident when they are young.

The book is somewhat episodic, switching points of view to include the sisters' voices as well as that of the driver of the car that killed their parents and an officer's and a lover's.

Maynard's title weaves into the story in a beautiful anecdote of a family tradition and in a farewell scene. I won't include a spoiler there.

I enjoyed the differing personalities of the sisters and their sense of family fun. The book has many funny one-liners and a genuine sense of caring. I liked the way Maynard brought in the LGBT community without making it the focus of either the book or the one character but a part of the world we live in.

Written as a NaNoWriMO book, it holds great potential for a new voice. The author's bio is refreshingly candid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carving the Light Nov. 14 2011
By Nancy J. Arnold - Published on
This was a wonderful book. I didn't just read the book -- I lived it! It was a great way to peek into the complicated relationship of being a sister, from trying to measure up to the expectations that you think they have, to worrying about whether or not it truly is an unconditional relationship. You must have been spying on me and my sisters.

Please, please, please write more books Sue!
