Day 90 – The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz
I read this book when it came out a couple years ago, and I don’t remember a ton of the details – especially ones that won’t give too much of the plot away.
But all you need to know, in a sense, is that Tiffany Reisz wrote it.
Reisz is a gorgeous writer, lush and poetic, and she tells a complicated story with passion and compassion.
There is grief and healing. There is love and sensuality. There are fascinating historical details, and a Southern sensibility that encompasses its famous charm as well as its penchant for the gothic.
There is a weathered, windblown lighthouse and a widow trying to find her footing after her beloved husband has died, turning to the only other thing she loves, photography.
It’s a beautiful book, and deals elegantly and gracefully with complicated emotions and supernatural elements, entrancing the reader until the very last page.
The Night Mark
From the bestselling author of The Bourbon Thief comes a sweeping tale of loss and courage, where one woman discovers that her destiny is written in sand, not carved in stone.
Faye Barlow is drowning. After the death of her beloved husband, Will, she cannot escape her grief and most days can barely get out of bed. But when she’s offered a job photographing South Carolina’s storied coast, she accepts. Photography, after all, is the only passion she has left.
In the quaint beach town, Faye falls in love again when she sees the crumbling yet beautiful Bride Island lighthouse and becomes obsessed with the legend surrounding The Lady of the Light—the keeper’s daughter who died in a mysterious drowning in 1921. Like a moth to a flame, Faye is drawn to the lighthouse for reasons she can’t explain. While visiting it one night, she is struck by a rogue wave and a force impossible to resist drags Faye into the past—and into a love story that is not her own.
Fate is changeable. Broken hearts can mend. But can she love two men separated by a lifetime?
