About The AuthorChristine Brae is a full time career woman who thought she could write a book about her life and then run away as far as possible from it. She never imagined that her words would touch the hearts of so many women with the same story to tell. This is her second and final book in the Light in the Wound series. Her third book is scheduled to come out in late 2014. When not listening to the voices in her head or spending late nights at the office, Christine can be seen shopping for shoes and purses, running a half marathon or spending time with her husband and three children in Chicago.
ExcerptThey say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Today, I see neither as I stare at the stranger in the mirror. There is nothing beautiful about me; I really don’t know what he sees. Even the dark circles around my eyes are cavernous and empty. They show no trace of someone who lives, only of someone who exists. No matter how hard I try, there is nothing familiar about the person I used to be. I don’t know where to find myself because I don’t know where I’ve gone. Who am I? As I struggle to accept my fate, these are the things I know: I am a mother and a sister. I am no longer a wife. I am someone else’s lover. He took away my heart and the life we made together. I will never recover. This time, these wounds will never heal. “Are you sure you have to leave tonight?” The sound of his voice transports me back to the present, where I’m standing in his robe, in his bathroom, in his home. He encircles his arms across my chest and plants little kisses on my neck. “Can’t you stay? I’ll take you home first thing tomorrow morning.” “Sorry, I really have to go. I want to be home to see Eddie off to school.” He tightens his hold and I relax my body against his. “You were absolutely amazing,” he whispers gruffly into my ear. “Stay with me a little longer. I’m not done taking care of you yet.” One day at a time. Tonight was all about forgetting but not yet forgiving. Filling but not replacing. And emerging from the abyss of loneliness knowing that I’ve pulled farther and farther away from the light.

*Takes a deep breath* Wow. That was a little intense for a while, but I love the ending. I was really curious to see how this book turned out. I loved the first book and thought it ended perfect. So to find out there is more.... agh! You just know some pain and heart break are in store.
I am glad I kept reading though. Like the first book I was completely caught up in these characters. This book gives you three point of views (which I usually hate, but this was exactly what we needed here.) I loved the new characters (yes even the ones I hate). They brought a new life to the story that created more twist and turns.
Overall this book was a great read and I am secretly hoping this is the end of Alex and Isa's story. I want them to keep this HEA. Although I am sure if Brae writes another I will be helplessly drawn into those pages as well.
