In Billy Coffey’s newest novel There Will Be Stars, we step into the days and nights of a family of sorts that have to ask these questions. Maddingly, a town that fans of Billy’s books know well doesn't feel the same as usual. Many of the people we've come to know and love are still there, but we meet others along the way.
In his unmistakable style, Billy grips our attention from page to page, making us more than a little uneasy with life as we know it. We, as readers, are forced to stop and look at ourselves, much the same way the characters must.
"The Turn is a mirror, Bobby. It strips away everything but who we are deep down, and it leaves us naked and makes us look upon ourselves. That's the only way we can change."This is a book about faith, fear and family. A book that twists and turns and challenges, but ultimately leaves me certain that only God can be God, no matter how hard others may try to fill His role.
This is another must read, but be warned, you will lose sleep, not wanting to put it down!
I was blessed to receive an advanced reader’s copy of There Will Be Stars. The opinions I have shared are mine and mine alone.
