Excellent book, very sad, expect tears. But the love story between brother and sister and brother and his lover are so touching and learning about the ravages of AIDS are truly horrific yet something everyone should know. You wont look at gay people the same once you read this book.
Beautifully-written story about a sister caring for her dying brother, and at the same time figuring out her own path in life. Read in one day.
I finished this book in a day. Katrina Kittle just has a way of writing that pulls you in and doesn't let go. A sad story, but one about love too. I really liked it.
This book is in my top five! My friend made me read it a few years ago, and I have since reccommended it to EVERYone! It is one of those change your life type of books. I cried but i felt so good for reading it!
I loved this book.At first I wasn't sure I wanted to read a book in which a character died of an incurable illness, but this book is about so much more. It's about love and families and living.
This is a beautiful story of love, hope, friendship, endurance & believing in those who love you. Katrina Kittle writes books as though they're non-fiction in such a very definite & interesting way. I didn't want to finish this book, I loved it so much!
First of all Katrina Kittle has always rocked!! She can take you places in the heart you only think you have been. A pen in her hand can do beautiful things on paper. This is a novel of so many different feelings and put together equals only one thing. Love. It is a novel that will open your eyes to the yet little known subject of aids, and it will open your heart to the suffers, their loved ones, and friends and familys, those who judge and those who accept. By the end i was almost exhausted from needing a break from tension of reading. I could not put the book down. The last 2 chapters i was reaching for the kleenex. I won't forget this novel for a very long time. Once again Ms. Kittle has stepped into my heart with words. Superior read.
This is an awesome novel-- I was intriqued from the start- the ending made me cry like a baby well done
This is the second novel written by Katrina Kittle which I have read. The Kindness of Strangers and Traveling Light were both so moving, well written and amazing. I read "Traveling Light" in three sittings. I would have read it in two if time permitted. This was an outstanding example of just how important family can be when you are subject to life-changing circumstances and the way in which you are able to get over as well as cope with these life hurdles when you have the love and support of those who truly care. I cannot say enough about this author and her writing skills. I look forward to more.
Very good, but, of course, sad. Worth the read.
I love Katrina Kittle and this book is why!
Wow! Wow! Wow! This book blew me away. It was emotional, raw and real I could not put it down. The characters were complex and relatable.
The author draws you right into the book...learn alot of what happens when someone has aids....its effects...love between family members...& the gifts that we give to each other.....
I have read this and another book by this same author, the other being "Kindness to Strangers". both well written and very moving. To quote another reviewer here: "This was an outstanding example of just how important family can be when you are subject to life-changing circumstances and the way in which you are able to get over as well as cope with these life hurdles..." The life and death of her brother from AIDS and all the changes to her family and to her own growth is amazing.
Such a tragic chapter in our history and the war against AIDS, ignorance and prejudice marches stubbornly on. As sad, and enraging as it is, it's really worth the read!
