Distant Starless Nights is marketed as a romance, but I'm not sure it entirely fits in the romance genre. It has one foot in, and one foot out. The theme that ties to story together is (I think) how to find a guiding lights in your life when your parents - who are supposed to be the primary source of guidance in a person's life - have completely failed you in terms of providing moral and emotional support. Once Kim's nanny is taken away from her as a young child, Kim's primary emotional support is a mouse she found in a closet at her boarding school, and later her godfather. From there, Kim gets better and better at holding fast to people who fill her life with love and support.
The writing is well crafted throughout, and especially during Kim's primary love interest. My only critique is that there's a lot of stuff happening and not enough Kim. I lived half a lifetime with Kim, but she still felt just at arm's length. Perhaps the issue is that the book is a bit too expansive. So much had happened by the end of the book, that we seemed light years away from the newborn baby we met on page one. Tightening the theme of motherhood could have helped connect the book as well. The pacing of the story moved along at a solid clip, and I'd hate to throw a wrench in it. But I do hope the next book takes some more time to explore key themes. Nevertheless, this was a strong first entry in a series that I look forward to finishing!
