The Light of the World: A Novel





At the back of her grandmother’s closet lies a mystery.


After her grandmother’s death, Eva finds a series of diaries detailing the life of a girl caught up in the magic of the Roaring Twenties.  She cannot reconcile the young girl in these diaries with the miserable old woman she loved so fiercely. What happened to change her grandmother so drastically?


Eva starts to investigate the puzzle her grandmother left behind. With the help of a local historian and his enigmatic assistant Olivia, they find a forgotten labyrinth under the city streets. But they are not the only ones down there. Someone else is searching for the light of the world.




     "The Light of the World is full of imagination, wonderment, history and love. I literally could not put it down."


"The Light of the World" is a treasure indeed."


     "From the vast and numerous descriptors that utterly draw you in, to the accurate depiction of a girl surviving depression [...], this one definitely deserves a 10/10 rating."
