Product description

Review

“A magnificent writer who deftly and sympathetically explores the dark desires, pains and joys of the human heart in each immaculately-crafted tale she writes.” ―Cleveland Plain Dealer on How the Light Gets In

“Masterful...Once again, Penny impressively balances personal courage and faith with heartbreaking choices and monstrous evil.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred) on How the Light Gets In

“Penny has always used setting to support theme brilliantly, but here she outdoes herself, contrasting light and dark, innocence and experience, goodness and evil both in the emotional lives of her characters and in the way those characters leave their footprints on the landscape. Another bravura performance from an author who has reinvented the village mystery as profoundly as Dashiell Hammett transformed the detective novel.” ―Booklist (starred) on How the Light Gets In

“Highly recommended for mystery lovers, readers who enjoy character-driven mysteries, and those who like seeing good triumph and evil get its just desserts.” ―Library Journal (starred) on How the Light Gets In

“Three Pines, with its quirky tenants, and luminous insights into trust and friendship...will hook readers and keep them hooked.” ―Kirkus Reviews (starred) on How the Light Gets In

“Penny writes with grace and intelligence about complex people struggling with complex emotions. But her great gift is her uncanny ability to describe what might seem indescribable – the play of light, the sound of celestial music, a quiet sense of peace.” ―New York Times Book Review

“Gorgeous writing…fresh and fully realized.” ―The Washington Post on The Beautiful Mystery

“Penny proves again that she is one of our finest writers.” ―People on A Trick of the Light
