About The Light of the World

After her beloved grandmother’s death, Eva finds the woman’s diaries and encounters a person she never knew – a young woman caught up in the magic of the Roaring Twenties who fell in love with a mysterious girl.

What happened to change her grandmother so drastically into the  miserable old woman she knew and loved so fiercely today? As Eva begins to investigate the puzzle her grandmother left behind, she recruits the help of a local historian and his enigmatic assistant, Olivia.

Together they find a forgottten labyrinth underneath the city and find out her grandmother’s younger life was entwined with a legend known as the light of the world. But a mysterious stranger is also underneath the city streets, searching for answers.

The Light of the World  will be available in December.
