Merrick Thatcher went through a hell that no one could possibly imagine. He fought to protect his country, his family, and the men standing at his side, but it wasn't just being a soldier overseas that changed him. He watched his friends die in front of him, felt indescribable pain, and lost his sight in the very same moment.
Badly injured, blind, and angry, he's done with war, but now he’s fighting his own battle. So, he’s waiting for it to end, spending his days and nights in a thick darkness no light can penetrate. Until Grace walks into his life and his broken eyes open to a woman that changes everything for him.
A story about two flawed souls finding love amidst the grief. A love that shines vividly, even in the dark, and discovering that sometimes being broken is how the light gets in.
For readers 18+ due to language, violence, and sexual situations.

About the Author
I live in Morgan Utah with my husband, daughter, and dog, Kolo. I write as often as my active daughter will let me and my husband has the patience of a saint. I find inspiration from dreams, people I meet, and life experiences. When I write, I usually end up drinking one too many cans of Peace Tea, eating three too many Fruit by the Foot fruit snacks, and accidently kicking my pup and best buddy, Kolo, too many times since he loves to sleep under my desk at my feet. I started writing as a teen, but my fear of the unknown won out every time and I threw everything out. After becoming a mother and deciding to stay at home to raise my beautiful little girl, I tried again when I couldn't stop thinking of ideas. I loved every minute, every hour of sleep lost, and every character that came to life in my mind. It's strange, but my favorite moments are when I have writer's block because I can turn to my husband and find inspiration through him by just doing what we do best together. Talking, laughing, and just being in love. He doesn't like to read, but he never stops encouraging me to keep going. Writing has become an important part of my life and every book has a special place in my heart.

Amazing and emotional...truly a fantastic story! Must read!!
4.5 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has pain, laughs, suspense, and heartbreak. This is Grace and Merrick’s story. Merrick lost not only his brothers in arms but also part of himself with the war. He is badly injured on his left side and has also lost his vision. He goes back home and just wants to be left alone. His mother who tries to help him out decides he needs a nurse. The Nurse he hires is Grace. Grace lives next door to Merrick. She makes Merrick feel by getting him to do things and getting to know him. Grace has her own pain and when Merrick over hears what she has gone through he can almost feel the pain she feels. Grace and Merrick grew up around each other but were not friends so he can’t remember what she looks like. Is there a way she can come out of his grumpiness and make Grace believe that he is a good man? Is there a way they can heal each other enough that they can move on together? I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book.
