This Raging Light
by Estelle Laure
Signed Hardcover Giveaway

HMH Books for Young Readers
Released 12/22/2015

Can the best thing happen at the worst time? Her dad went crazy. Her mom left town. She has bills to pay and a little sister to look after. Now is not the time for level-headed seventeen-year-old Lucille to fall in love. But love—messy, inconvenient love—is what she’s about to experience when she falls for Digby Jones, her best friend’s brother. With blazing longing that builds to a fever pitch, Estelle Laure’s soulful debut will keep readers hooked and hoping until the very last page.

Author Question: What is your favorite thing about This Raging Light?

I have several, and they change depending on what mood I’m in or what I’m thinking about. Today, it’s Wren, Lucille’s little sister. She’s sort of my Winnie the Pooh character, in that everyone else in the story is grappling with their human condition and what to do in morally questionable situations and she just is. That doesn’t mean she’s always happy, but she is sort of zen. I want to hug her and/or keep her in my pocket (not in a creepy way).

He is living away near his work and her and refuses to talk to me or to come home . I am devastated and am finding it hard to cope . I wish I did not love him and that I could move on but I can't . I don't know how to stop feeling like this I wish I didn't as its eating me away and I m starting to feel ill. I have degraded myself begging him to come home all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Frank Ojo can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. tow days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Frank Ojo . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. if you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, This is his details, E-mail: , Web site: . Mobile number +2348072370762.
