I guess this is it, huh? After fourteen years together, starting a life of our own on this island, five deployments and countless letters I’ve written you through it all, I finally go out to the mailbox and see something I’ve always dreamed of: an envelope with your handwriting on it. For one moment, I actually thought you’d changed your mind, that all the awful things you said to me were just your way of coping after everything you’d been through. I was still here, Fisher. I was still here, holding my breath, waiting for you to come back even though you told me you never would. You always said you’d find your way back to me. Out of all the lies you’ve told me, this one hurts the most.
Enclosed you will find the signed divorce papers, as requested.
I hope you find what you’re looking for. I’m sorry it wasn’t me.
To get the ending they want, Lucy and Fisher will have to go back to the beginning. Through the good and the bad, they’ll be reminded of why they always made their way back to each other, and why this time, one way or another, it will be the last time.
“War changes everyone, son, there’s no shame in that, If it doesn’t change you, you were already too F&@ked up to begin with.”
If you only know the funny, crazy, and wacky sides of Tara Sivec than you better prepare yourself because Fisher’s Light is about to change everything you thought you knew. Breathtakingly beautiful and gut-wrenchingly painful, Tara has pulled out the emotion we saw in Watch Over Me to create a story over flowing in symbolism, heart, and emotion.
“I’m not a hero, I’m not a good man, I’m not a good husband…I am none of those things and they need to see that.”
Lucy and Fisher have been through hell and back. Fisher, battling on the frontlines only to come home for the last time to fight his greatest war of all. Lucy, struggling to hold it all together while her world is falling apart. PTSD is devastating, its ugly, and it destroys. Fisher’s fight is real. Raw. At some points unsettling. Seeing the moments when Fisher took out his pain on Lucy were emotionally uncomfortable. After the welcome home parties have ended and the fanfare stops left is a man, his wife, and the unpleasant white elephant called PTSD. Righting wrongs, Fisher is working to gain back the only woman he’s ever loved.
“I will find my way back to you.”
This is a story that will stay with you far after you read “the end”. The last 25% of the story had me on the edge of my seat. I love that both of Tara’s emotional charged books have something to do with her family. It’s no surprise that they are also both my favorites. I will also say that Fisher’s Light is Tara’s best work to date. The passion she put into Fisher’s Light shows in every single word. I enjoy all of Tara’s sides. Funny Tara, silly Tara, and my new favorite, sappy emotional Tara. For real! The last 25%. Get ready.
