A Sudden Light
A Sudden Light by Garth Stein
Seattle. Timber barons. A family legacy. Devastation. Conservation. Love stories. Ghosts. Garth Stein (author of The Art of Racing in the Rain), brings us into the lives of a timber baron family in Seattle through the eyes of Trevor, a fourteen year old boy. While this is a very different book from The Art of Racing in the Rain (which I loved, mostly because of Enzo, the dog narrator), this, too, has an engaging narrator in Trevor. This seems to be one of Stein's gifts as a writer, the ability to create very engaging and believable narrators. I felt drawn into the world of timber and timber barons as well as Trevor's family.
