Sierra's family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon—it's a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other. Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other. By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. But Sierra sees beyond Caleb's past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love. What Light is a love story that's moving and life-affirming and completely unforgettable.
I loved the idea of a story based on a Christmas tree lot! I liked it so much because it’s different from the other Christmas story I’ve read, which are the typical boy meets girl, girl meets boy, oh hey look it’s Christmas btw story (if you know what I mean, could be kind of confusing…). Sierra was really cool and I could get myself into the story very quickly because of her. She’s determined to not fall in love in California, but that’s exactly what she did. She couldn’t help it really, to be honest. There are just those dimples… We all know a guy who’s impossible to resist due to his dimples ;). I have a few points which I haven’t liked that much though: first of all, I hated that no one could forgive Caleb. I mean the person he did this to could, so why couldn’t the others? He shouldn’t be blamed for that anymore and especially he shouldn’t blame himself for it! He's such a good boy, giving christmas trees to people who can't afford one. I didn’t like the message of blaming him after all these years: Do a mistake once and you shall never be forgiven? Not really a good thing to say with a book set at Christmas… I wanted to know more about Caleb, his character wasn’t that developed. The reader knows his story, but I can’t say I do really know HIM.
I recommend this book for everyone who likes to read a book to set you in mood for Christmas. It’s wasn’t as light as I expected it to be, but in a good way. I can’t really find a bad point, only some ideas I didn’t like.
Beautiful ! Macht schöne Weihnachtliche Stimmung.
Es ist langweilig, es fehlt Gefühl und irgendwie was zwischen den Seiten. Das Ende ist auch nicht befriedigend! Sehr schlecht umgesetzt!
