Fisher's Light by Tara Sivec - FMR REVIEW

TITLE: Fisher's Light
AUTHOR: Tara Sivec
RELEASE DATE: March 22, 2015

I guess this is it, huh? After fourteen years together, starting a life of our own on this island, five deployments and countless letters I’ve written you through it all, I finally go out to the mailbox and see something I’ve always dreamed of: an envelope with your handwriting on it. For one moment, I actually thought you’d changed your mind, that all the awful things you said to me were just your way of coping after everything you’d been through. I was still here, Fisher. I was still here, holding my breath, waiting for you to come back even though you told me you never would. You always said you’d find your way back to me. Out of all the lies you’ve told me, this one hurts the most.

Enclosed you will find the signed divorce papers, as requested.
I hope you find what you’re looking for. I’m sorry it wasn’t me.

To get the ending they want, Lucy and Fisher will have to go back to the beginning. Through the good and the bad, they’ll be reminded of why they always made their way back to each other, and why this time, one way or another, it will be the last time.


Fisher's Light is such a beautiful story about love, loss, and second chances. Fisher struggles with the after effect of PTSD and while he is trying to figure out a way to cope, he pushes the one person who has always been on his side out of his life, his lightFisher and Lucy go on this emotional journey to find that light in all the darkness. 

At first, I found it slightly confusing going between the past, the present, Lucy, and Fisher, but after awhile I craved that information about the past. It really helped me understand the relationship between Lucy and Fisher and found it necessary to talk about the past and how they met. 

For everyone who like a good contemporary romance, I would recommend this book. You will laugh a little, possibly even shed a few tears as you fall in love with Fisher and Lucy. I know I did.
5 Stars

This story was amazing. There was so much detail. The characters were addictive. I love the way she flipped between past and present to give more details of the back story. Her descriptions of Fisher's fight with PTSD were heart wrenching. I cried along with Lucy and hoped along with Fisher.   There were a few spots of comic relief in the form ofFisher and Lucy's friends.
This is a story of a man trying to overcome the effects of PTSD so that he is able to spend the rest of his days with the love of his life, and a woman that has always been strong enough to stand at his side.
The emotions in this story were off the charts. The love that these characters feel for each other is beautiful. Of course, there was a lot of pain to go through to get to the happy ending. But when you have something real with someone, it is worth fighting for.

5 Stars
