    Through Golden Light

    I don't cry when I read a lot of books, but I cried in reading this one. The characters live and breathe. Aguirre's writing is splendid and vivid, more moving than anything I've come across in a long time. She didn't sacrifice character for action, something you don't always see where people sometimes complain if there's not a sword fight or a care chase every other page. If you want something light, this isn't for you. There are no easy in answers in this book. There's no villain, really, and that's what makes it all so sad. She paints everything in glorious shades, although the morality seems nothing but gray. I don't think you'll be disappointed, though. I checked out the author's website and it appears that she will write Paddy's story too, along with six more! I can't wait!

    Through Golden Light

    I came across this novel, recommended on a bulletin board that I frequent. I don't usually read first-time authors, because they're invariably confident that they've written the best novel ever when the truth is usually just the opposite. This novel is certainly not perfect. In places, the story-telling is a little inconsistent, but the characters are so vibrant that you forgive the writer the unevenness, because in some ways life is like that, not perfectly symmetrical. For a first effort, this is a splendid read, although if you're not a fan of alternate history, you may not enjoy the tinkering with the timeline and the creative liberty taken in putting an island off the coast of Nova Scotia. However, all things considered, I'd recommend the book to anyone. Molly is a fiery, memorable heroine and Father Lucian is both terrifyingly human and somehow pathetic, particularly at the end. I won't give the important bits away, but suffice to say: your heart will be in your throat.

    An Impressive Achievement

    Through Golden Light by A. A. Aguirre is a tragic tale of a man forced to do the bidding of his masters, and a woman unable to do the bidding of her heart. Told in an opulent, lyrical style, it¿s the story of Molly, an illiterate peasant girl, and Brother Lucian, a patrician Italian forced into the Society of Jesus to save his life. These two battle their forbidden passions for each other as they struggle to complete a foothold on an inhospitable foreign shore. Aguirre seizes our attention on page one with her pellucid prose and holds us breathless to the dramatic, heartbreaking finale. Aguirre is a writer to put on your `must read¿ list.
