[Book Review] Sailing Out of Darkness by Normandie Fischer

Sailing out of Darkness
Sailing out of Darkness
An unexplained apparition, wanderings through Italy, and mayhem back home push four lives toward their day of reckoning.​​​

The last thing on Samantha's mind is another entanglement. Fleeing a disastrous affair with her childhood best friend, she hopes for peace and forgetfulness in a trip to Italy.​

Teo Anderson copes with his own issues, both physical and emotional, by writing mysteries—until one strange and compelling vision comes to life in the person of Sam.

​Teo is nothing like Sam's philandering ex-husband or her sailing buddy, Jack, who, despite his long-time girlfriend, caught Sam off guard with his flashing black eyes. But not even sailing the cobalt waters of the Mediterranean can assuage Sam’s guilt for hurting another woman. Soon the consequences of her behavior escalate, and the fallout threatens them all. 

​SAILING OUT OF DARKNESS is the haunting story of mistakes and loss and the grace that abounds through forgiveness..

Samantha has almost given up. After her husband walked out on her with saying that he never loved her, she decides to take a step in faith and take trip to Italy where she hopes to start over and set aside the world for one minute. On her way to Italy she meets Theodore - another person that suffered emotionally and was trying to find peace and restore his faith. 

This novel is what we call the-real-world. There are no components of typical fiction romance or the emotional games where two people completely screw around until they find that they cannot live without one another. No. This is a book with mature conversations, romance that is raw, emotional, and truly real. Great read for those who enjoy Woman Lit..
