Critical Praise

"About all the things that make us worthy as human beings-integrity, honesty and living the life you were meant to live-a triumph."

——Dorothea Benton Frank, NYT Bestselling author of PAWLEYS ISLAND

“Henry doesn't disappoint in this beautiful novel of discovery and self-acceptance, a romance with universal appeal.”


“She writes the kind of books the term "lyrical" was coined to describe, and WHEN LIGHT BREAKS is no exception…it is Southern Comfort, straight up, no twist.”

——Fresh Fiction

“Memorable and timeless” 4 _ stars

——RT BookClub

"WHEN LIGHT BREAKS is a passionate, unforgettable novel of self-discovery, regret and the illuminating power of love. Patti Callahan Henry's writing is as lush and magical as the lowcountry she loves. Once caught in the emotional currents of her story, you'll not be released until the last, satisfying page. "

——Mary Alice Monroe, NYT Bestseller of SWEETGRASS
