Ice crystalizes around Shilo's heart, threatening to plunge her into darkness as she's gripped by evil. And it is only Week Two of her summer-long exile to Sicily. But Shilo will face the evil, and the torment of missing Kenji, because the reason she crossed an ocean is worth that and more. Nonna Marie, her great-grandmother. The one who set their family tree on fire. Years ago, she received The Gift - a miraculous, divine power to heal. The same power bestowed upon Shilo just before her seventeenth birthday. Becoming a Healer has already led to danger and heartache, but it is nothing compared to what lies ahead. High on Mt. Etna, in a centuries-old convent, Shilo will discover the horrors of human trafficking, heroic feats propelled by courage and faith, and the unbearable pain of another loss.

On a ballet stage halfway around the world, Melody grand jetés into a life-changing moment. But after years of strenuous preparation, something goes terribly wrong. When she regains consciousness, her ballet dreams lie shattered, piercing Melody with shards of hopelessness. What is life without ballet? And how will she survive this ordeal without Shilo? As Melody struggles to piece together the fragments of her broken life, she reflects on the Nigerian-Russian parents she never knew, and a pair of hauntingly familiar ebony eyes.

Review quote

Under another hand, Shards of Light could all too easily have become a murder mystery or a novel of intrigue alone; but there's a larger purpose at work here, and romance enters into an already-complex equation to introduce Shilo not just to her newfound abilities, but also her heart. With its different characters and their special focuses and its gentle exploration of a young woman's life in flux, Shards of Light is a beautifully evocative story that stands well alone while enhancing a series. It invites readers to reflect long after Shilo's journey through faith and secrets comes to an end. - D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Susan Miura has crafted a tale that is as intriguing as it is complex. It sits on the border of YA fiction, but the characters are interesting enough to keep this adult fully engaged and flipping the pages. Cara Putman, award-winning author of Delayed Justice and Shadowed by Grace

The characters are real people, instantly familiar like old friends. Well-written with poignancy and humor, Shards of Light is the perfect curl-up-in-your-favorite-chair novel. Gina Detwiler, author, The Forlorn Series

Susan Miura's accurate portrayals of the physical, psychological and life-altering affects of a serious injury and the treacherous uphill battle of rehabilitation were on point. The reminder of how God's plans are a part of a bigger picture that we don't always see while focused on our immediate struggles, renewed my faith that He is ever present and working his miracles when the universal timing is right.

Christine Rojas, licensed occupational therapist

A captivating novel that demonstrates the power of love and courage, while highlighting the brilliance of God's work. - Yasmeen Bankole, Congressional Constituent Services Liaison
