Book Review: Jolina Petersheim’s “How The Light Gets In”

Ruth Neufeld’s unique story is one of healing as she struggles to adjust to her newfound life as a widow and single mother.

Jolina Petersheim’s “How The Light Gets In” centers on Ruth, her two young daughters and life unexpectedly changing around her. In the story, the modern woman moves her small family into a classic Mennonite community (where her deceased husband’s extended family resides) with her mother-in-law Mabel. While living there, she allows herself and daughters to grieve their father’s untimely death and slowly heal. Ruth is even open to the idea of a relationship with her late husband’s cousin, Elam. That relationship possibility opens up a whole new world full of surprises.

Jolina Petersheim’s “How The Light Gets In” is quite the tearjerker. If you love melodramas, this book is for you. It’s not the type of genre I seek on a regular basis, because I prefer rom-com and more lighthearted books. Nonetheless, this particular novel shares a good life lesson that is religious based. 

“How The Light Gets In” releases in March 2019.
