Edge of Light by Cynthia Justlin

Review of Edge of Light by Cynthia Justlin

Published: May 14, 2012
4 out of 5 smirks

Synopsis: "Taken prisoner by a ruthless group of anarchists deep in the Cambodian jungle, anthropologist Jocelyn Hewitt is isolated in a dark prison cell. Without chance of rescue. Or hope. Until the man in the next cell reaches out to let her know she's not as alone as she thinks.

CIA agent Oliver Shaw has been held prisoner for over two years. Forced to witness the brutal torture and slow murder of his entire team, his spirit is not just broken, it's crushed. He no longer believes in hope. Until he hears Jocelyn through the wall, and suddenly feels like a glimpse of light is trying to reach in...

Jocelyn's heart aches for the tortured man whose presence and voice give her the courage to risk their escape. But first she'll have to remind Oliver who he once was, what he once loved, and bring him back to life. Only then will they have a chance for freedom-and the kind of love neither ever thought possible."

Edge of Light by Cynthia Justlin is a story about finding the beauty in life even under the most tragic circumstances.  What I love about this book is how Joise and Oliver while they meet under dyer events actually keep one another alive and connect on a deeper level because of what they have experienced. I also love that this book is a story about romance, but it is deeper than that and is not a story that revolves around the romance itself.  This story is realistic, sad, hope and hopeless in its beauty within Joise and Oliver.  They survive for not only themselves, but ultimately for one another.  I give Edge of Light by Cynthia Justlin 4 smirks because the story is unique and the characters transformations are magnificent.
