HOME BEFORE DARK by SUSAN WIGGS
In her career as a photojournalist, free-spirited Jessie
Ryder has seen the world through her camera lens. But
she's never traveled far enough to escape a painful moment
that has haunted her for the past sixteen years: the day
she gave her baby daughter away. Now she faces a life-
altering crisis, and she's decided to fix the broken
pieces of her heart and seek out Lila, even if it means
she has to upset the world of Lila's adoptive mother, her
very own sister, Luz.
Jessie and Luz are drawn into an emotional tug-of-war
filled with moments of unexpected humor, surprising
sweetness and unbearable sadness. And for Jessie, life's
bittersweet irony plays its hand. She meets Dustin
Matlock, a young father who has survived devastating loss.
Jessie begins to see the hopeful possibilities that lie
buried in the most wrenching tragedies. But as the pain,
regrets and mistakes of the past rise to the surface, a
new picture emergesa picture filled with hope and
promise and the redeeming power of the human heart.
