Sierra's family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon—it's a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other.

Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other.

By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. But Sierra sees beyond Caleb's past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love. 


Have you ever come across a story, the one that stays with you long after you finish it? WHAT LIGHT was that story for me, I was thinking about it even once I reached the end. I couldn’t help but wonder, What’s next for Caleb and Sierra. Will their relationship last? What a beautiful, inspirational story. WHAT LIGHT will stay with you long after you reach the end and make you crave for more. I’m in love. I couldn’t put this book down from second that I picked it up, I actually had force myself to put it down because I had work the next morning. If I could read it all night, I would had. It’s a heartbreaking story that will have you on edge of your seat.

I loved Sierra and Caleb. First of all, I love both of their names, especially Sierra a name that is not used often and I felt like it fit the character. You can’t help but love them, especially Sierra. She was the type of girl that I would loved to be friends with, she’s sweet, friendly and will do anything for people that she loves. You can’t help but love her. Caleb, I had a hard time believing the rumors especially considering what he did for other families. There was part of me that hoped that it was nothing but a rumor. Once I found the truth, I felt sorry for him and I could tell that it was a guilt that he cared with him for so long, I can’t even begin to imagine how it must been for him. Sierra was good for him, and it felt like she was only one who seemed to believe in him, believe that he meant no hard to his sister. What the two of them had, it was special, it was true love. I could tell way they were around each other, always happy to see and way that Sierra defended him when everyone judged him, even her friends. I was rooting for them, I hoped they find way to make this work, Most of the scenes between two of them had me smiling, especially the end, that was magical.

I had been a big JAY ASHER fan since I came across his debut novel THIRTEEN REASONS WHY back in 2011 when a friend of mine recommended the book. Like this one, I fell in love with it and read it multiple times. It was a book that I found myself being able to relate to. Of course when I found he was writing a new book, I knew I had to check out. I wasn’t disappointed. It was astonishing. Not only is Asher is a great writer that will keep their reader’s curiosity till end, but one of nicest people I met. I have read couple Christmas stories before but this was one of my favorites. If you want get into sprit of Christmas, WHAT LIGHT is a book that you should be picking up.

Beautiful story about family, true love and forgiveness. I wish that I could give this book more than five stars. I am eager to see what adventures JAY ASHER has in store for us next
