This is a compelling read, despite the story being centered around personal and marital struggles. The characters pull you in to their tale and you find yourself cheering for them to handle the obstacles they face. A horrible tragedy impacts their lives and leaves them emotionally distant and unable to cope. This novel covers their once happy marriage, the trials that pulled it apart, and where they're left in the end.

The subject matter addresses difficult issues that, while perhaps not the same in every relationship, are fundamentally issues we all face. The author builds the story well and the characters are well-developed. While I did find the story moving, I think the impact would have been greater if the main part of the story wasn't told as a flashback.

This is an easy read that pulls you in. The material addresses very real and challenging issues, but in a way that inspires perseverance and hope. Definitely worth the read.

I give this 5 stars because of the sweetness of the story, its message about hope, love, and redemption, and for the potential this author has, as evidenced by her ability to craft a whole, satisfying story that comes full circle and closes nicely.

Amber meets the love of her life but, as is true in REAL life, it's not all fairytales and unicorns. A tragedy ruins the idyllic love, and the family is uprooted not only from their peaceful Kansas life, but from their happiness as well. What I liked and appreciated was that the issues facing this love story were grounded in reality--the idea that this could happen to you.

Where I was left wanting more was a deeper emotional connection between myself and characters. I wanted to see more of the torment and pain--esp with regards to certain infidelities. I think this novel has the perfect framework for a story that just needs a little bit more show and not tell to attach us to the events even more. But as is, it's a fast, page-turning read, where I genuinely wanted to know what was going to happen next.

And, as I said before, I'm a big softy for hope and forgiveness, and stories that play up the inherent goodness in people, which this story has in spades.

Drake and Amber meet, fall in love, get married and have two children, have a passionate love life, and successful careers. Tragedy strikes, sending Drake toward self-destruction and shatters his beautiful relationship with Amber. Then another tragedy strikes.

Traci Sanders has written an emotional short novel about human tragedy and relationships. She develops the main characters well and tells the sad story of a married couple dealing with personal tragedies. For her first novel aimed at grown-ups, it is a good start, and an enjoyable read. With some improvements in grammar, it would justify a higher rating.

I recommend this book to those who enjoy tragic romance novels.

This is a book about tragedy and love. Tragedy tears the couple apart, and tragedy pulls them back together. This book grapples with the reality of "true love". Love is not a feeling...It's a commitment. In this emotional story, the heroine refuses to take the easy road and demonstrates true love by acting out of her commitment, even when the feelings are gone. It's something anyone can relate to, even though we may not have faced the same tragic circumstances as the characters in the book.
Though the subject matter is heavy, the book is far from depressing. It ends with a message of hope.

This is a very sweet, and sour, and again sweet story. One of those classical stories of a wonderful married life that suddenly hits the wall, or goes down the hill, with nothing to stop it. Until…

So was the sweet and sour marriage of Amber and Drake. They started well. Everything looked perfect. A loving home, and loving children. It looked like nothing could go wrong. That’s when the evil forces go to work. They put all sorts of stunts and stumbling block in front of anything in life that is going smoothly. They dangle forbidden carrots in front of straight forward people, and lure them away from the right way. They do anything that will bring about the fall of good man or woman. Mind you, they never go after the bad ones. In the end, they sit back and enjoy the result of the disaster they have caused.

Only God, with His the forces of good can intervene. For no merits of ours, God may chose to save the situation. I know that the bad will always be punish, and the good, always rewarded. Find out how this tussle between the good and evil ended.

The story dragged a bit, but I enjoy it. I enjoyed particularly the absence of violence even at the points of tension in the story. A goodly story indeed.

When Darkness Breaks by Traci Sanders is a touching story of a couple who struggle to overcome a terrible tragedy; a tragedy that almost destroys their family. Amber and Drake have everything a young married couple could ask for; Amber has a great career and Drake has the flexibility to be a stay at home Dad, they have a lovely home, and two beautiful children.
Suddenly their lives are turned upside down when both are offered exciting career opportunities. While arguing about whose career has more importance, as Drake drives them home from dinner their car hits a young boy, killing him. Although Drake is not found responsible he is devastated by the accident and his life begins a downward spiral. Unable to cope with what happened he begins to drink heavily and even engages in extra-marital affairs. Meanwhile, Amber is left to raise their children, feeling alone and abandoned.
When another accident occurs, Drake must face the reality that nothing is more important than his wife and family. This is a story of overcoming tragedy and learning to value what is truly important in life. As I followed Drake and Amber through the ups and downs of their life I shared their emotional journey. This is a tender story that incorporates some Christian faith into a sweet love story. Well written and easy to read I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a story of hope.
