Everybody loved her.
In 1946, that included her boyfriend’s best friend, Sam Davidson.
Ronni Johnson wrote a book about Violet. It changed her life. Now she’s back working as a registered nurse at Fairfield Springs, loving her patients and her job. She doesn’t have another book in her.
A mysterious email arrives from Chet Wilson’s son, asking Ronni to tell “the truth” about his dad.
She ignores it.
Sam Davidson’s family becomes inextricably linked with Ronni, though, and through them she learns a story that must be told.
Ronni finds herself back at the keyboard, determined to share the long-held secrets revealed to her.
And once again, Violet is reaching back through the years to touch Ronni’s life...
...DARK ENOUGH TO SEE THE STARS is a story of human resilience and fragility; of joy and sorrow; of our ability to find family in one another. Alternating chapters between Sam’s world in the distant past and Ronni’s in the present, readers will witness lives woven together, hearts bound forever in surprising ways.Duke’s trademark humor and Southern charm make this a must-read for fans of Sue Monk Kidd, Anne Rivers Siddons, Rebecca Wells and Fannie Flagg. DARK ENOUGH TO SEE THE STARS is sure to be a favorite for readers, especially book clubs who want to revisit and discuss the characters of IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU.
