About Daylight

It was too late.

The whole world knew it, the nations shaking their heads at the fallen United States, our beautiful country of hope and freedom covered in blood and ashes.

Only the devil could’ve planned something so disastrous.

Only God could save us now.

Only God could save August.

It was all my fault that he nearly lost his life, dashing back into the hailstorm of debris to save a man who was already dead. I can only hope that he’ll recover—that we will recover.

Because some things will never be forgotten.

My Review

Daylight: A 9/11 Short Story by Grace A. Johnson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Characters: Grace, how do you manage to create characters that you make me care about in the space of a short story? That’s talent right there! Because I can read three-hundred-page novels and not be at all attached to the characters.

Okay, I don’t normally speak to the author in my reviews, so don’t think I’m too weird … 🙂

Anyway, Sylvie had such a great character voice! Her personality jumped off the page (I’m sorry if that’s a cliché). She had realistic emotions and fears. And August was such a cool guy. Needless to say, I need more of these characters!

Language: Clean.

Moral: Daylight contained themes of hope and God working things for good. I greatly enjoyed them!

Plot: This short story doesn’t dwell on all the facts of 9/11 or how/why it happened. It focuses on how it impacted two people’s lives. Because this is a short story, I don’t want to talk too much about the plot because that would give away way too much. 🙂

Romance: Clean. August and Sylvie were great together!

Writing: Man, I love Grace’s writing style. She presented the characters so well, and she did Sylvie’s voice perfectly (I already mentioned that, but I’m going to mention it again). I could feel all the characters’ emotions and see the scenes as if they were a movie. Also, there were some beautiful descriptions in there.

Overall: Daylight was an excellent read, and I’d recommend it to those who enjoy Christian fiction and contemporary romance.

Disclosure: I received this book free from the publisher/author. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
