A Light in the Hallway by Amanda Prowse is the story of a family. The story opens as Kerry is battling cancer and her husband Nick is trying to manage the day to day task and be there for their teenage son Oliver. Nick struggles to manage everything and he finds it harder as time goes on. I know this makes it seem like a tear-jerker, and I admit I cried, but I also admired Nick for his strength in the face of the situation and his drive to keep going. The story spans a few years. The narrative moves through time showing us Nick’s scenes from Nick’s life and even letting us know what Kerry thinks. Nick plucked my heartstrings as he navigated the changes in his life and tried to do the best thing for his son. This story leaves you feeling hopeful and optimistic as you take Nick’s journey with him. He is supported by his friends and family and they add their own special touches to his journey.
