As the Light Fades
By Catherine West
Women's Fiction
Paperback & ebook, 362 Pages
September 10th 2019 by KDP


Sometimes we’re placed in the strangest of circumstances for the most important reasons.

After her carefully constructed life crumbles, Liz Carlisle finds herself back on Nantucket, picking up the pieces. With the family estate under renovations, the solitude she craves seems out of reach.

Matthew Stone intends to steer clear of his new tenant. She’s carrying a load of baggage, but as long as she pays the rent, he’ll let her be. He’s got enough to deal with caring for his wayward niece, Mia.

Liz doesn’t have time for teenagers and her track record with men is abysmal, but an unlikely friendship forms between the three.

When her former boyfriend is charged with assault, Liz is called to testify against him. But he knows the darkest secrets of her life—secrets she’d hoped to keep buried forever, and he’s ready to reveal them. Telling the truth is the right thing to do, but it may cost her everything she’s worked so hard for, and all she’s come to love.

Guest Post: Discovering Nantucket

As an island girl, having grown up in Bermuda, the thought of writing a book set on an island held great appeal. At the time of writing my 2016 novel, The Things We Knew, I was told stories set in the US would sell better than stories set on foreign soil, so I chose to set my story on Nantucket, a charming, tiny island off Cape Cod.

I was unable to visit Nantucket during the writing of the novel, so I relied heavily on Google maps, where you can actually ‘walk’ the streets, and I read many, many blogs, and Facebook pages that talked about island life and culture and history, and spoke with people who lived and/or vacationed there. I soon began to think it couldn’t possibly be as beautiful as it seemed. I mean look at this …

Unbeknownst to me, as release day for The Things We Knew drew closer, my amazing, albeit sneaky, husband, arranged a book signing at Mitchell’s Bookstore, on Main Street, Nantucket! So our whole family spent five days enjoying all Nantucket has to offer, and I had to admit that all the pictures I’d drooled over where pretty accurate. From the cobbled streets, to the massive blue hydrangeas and eye-popping pink roses clambering over the gray shingled homes, the breathtaking views, charming shops and out-of-this-world food, Nantucket has something for everyone! We had so much fun there, and I hope to go back again one day.

So of course, when the idea of writing a spin-off story from The Things We Knew started to stir in my mind, I was eager to get back to this beautiful island, and set another story there. As the Light Fades is now the second book set on Nantucket, and part of me hopes it won’t be the last. And I may just have to return for more research!
