The Light Source by Kim Magowan


Selected passages by Jeri Howett



More on The Light Source:

Reminiscent of the work of Meg Wolitzer, and narrated by Heather, Julie, their lifelong friends, partners, and children, The Light Source is a prismatic portrayal of what everlasting modern love truly looks like and reminds us that what's meant-to-be becomes harder to define with age. The relationship between Heather Katchadourian and Julie Howe is complicated. Over the past two decades, they've been just about everything to each other: boarding school roommates, best friends, lovers, rivals, even co-parents--both together and estranged. Will they find their way back to each other, or have they inflicted too much damage along the way?
