PHENOMENAL! I was in love with this story from the first word, until the very last.

"For those searching for the light... Never stop."

I can't even tell you how much I needed this book after finishing book #1 Find You in the Dark. FYITD was one of the absolute best books I've ever read and I felt so connected to the characters and drawn into the story that, honestly, my world was just not complete until I was able to read this book.

This book kept me up till 5AM. I just had to read it in one si

5+ I <3 CLAYTON REED STARS!!!

The thing about shadows is that they’re not all darkness. You need to have light to have shadows. So just look for it.


Clay and Maggie’s journey continues...

After how the first part of the series ended I just HAD to know how the story of Maggie and Clay would continue. Therefore, I'm extremely glad that I waited to read this series until the second part was released. Just like the first one, Light in the Shadows made me feel *so many emotions*.

"When I was drowning, she became my air. In the cold, she became my warmth. In the dark, she became my light.”


description

Darkness' true meaning is the absence of light. But it takes both for stars to shine, for shadows to comfort you, cloud your mind and relieve the burden in your soul. Light and darkness, forever entwined. Healing and loving, scabbing over wounds and mending the pieces of broken hearts.

No, there was no cliffhanger, I just sooo did not want this series to end.

"I love you, Maggie May Young. Always and forever." And then my mouth touched hers and I felt my future begin.


I stumbled upon Find You in the Dark by chance when I saw someone else's review, and never expected it to pack such a punch. I didn't realise that the first book had a cliffhanger when I went into it, and I remember being so completely floored by it.

Thank you to everyone who showed their love and support for me after I finished Find You in the Dark. I love you all and I feel blessed to have bonded with everyone over books.

After my personal heartbreak, at the end of the book one, I knew I had to finish this series. My driving force was I needed Clay to have the HEA my friend, Bill, never got.

Clay and Maggie's persevered through the darkness to find little glimpses of light in the shadows. Even though they stayed together their lives will

"Healing and endurance. And most of all courage. I finally felt, after all this time, that I was mastering these qualities."

When I read and reviewed FYITD, this is part of what I wrote:
This heartbreakingly real and gut-wrenching portrayal of a young man suffering crippling mental illness and his journey of survival through the love and salvation of a young woman totally gutted me; I fell completely and deeply in pain and in love with Clay and Maggie.

Thank you Meredith Walters ... for giving this story and these character no easy answers, no quick fixes ... instead they've been given hardships, depth and substance.

Along with it's predessesor, this book took me on an incredible journey. It was emotionally exhausting. There were points of total darkness. But, just as the title would elude ... it was the light in the shadows that made the whole thing so very, very worthwhile.

Light in the Shadows is a well done and completely believable conclusion to the book Find You in the Dark by A. Meredith Walters. It possessed pain, beauty, courage and light.

This book is written in alternating povs which gifted the reader the full scope of emotions both of our main characters felt from the first page. Their fears, anxiety, insecurities and most important a full look at what it’s like to struggle and live with mental illness. I related to Maggie, I to love someone who looks for

This is a hard story for me to rate because I felt such a connection to it. When I was younger I was in a relationship with someone who was depressed and had substance abuse problems. I felt Maggie's and Clay's pain as if it was my own. I thought that Ms Walters' portrayal of the chain of events that took place were realistic. I know first hand the patterns that take place. The love, the worry, the guilt, and the feeling of hopelessness. The feeling that you are not enough and the wondering of

"In the dark, she became my light."

This is a story of unconditional love, a story of trials in the face of mental illness, a story of healing and hope. Maggie and Clay have endured so much pain and turmoil in the face of his mental illness, it seems no relationship could survive it- at least not in any healthy way.

This book starts right up where the first book left off. Clay is living in an inpatie

I really, really hate it when I don't like a book half as much as all my bookie friends did, but that's what happened here with LITS. I can't put my finger on what it is I don't like about this series but I felt the same with FYITD too. Maybe it's Maggie, or the fact it seems way too long with too much inner dialogue. I don't know. It just doesn't work for me.

Anyway.. I love Clay ALOT. One of the only reasons I continued with this series is because I wanted Clay to find his HAE. I do

Firstly, what a FANTASTIC book cover!! This is exactly how I picture Clayton Reed!

Well, I have to admit, i really loved this book. In a way, I didn't want it to end. I found that I liked it a lot more than Find You in the Dark. I don't usually like stories with a strong illness storyline, and in this case it is mental illness. Clay self harms, and at times it has been near fatal. But this story, this story just had me hooked from book one, and this second is better stil

“For my whole life, all of my love.”

This story picks up a few months after Clay sent Maggie the letter telling her to be free and move on and after he has been admitted in Greystone for treatment.
He is miserable but still thinks that he made the best option letting her free and that she’s way better off without him and his problems. The thing is… Maggie didn’t move on. She’s in a bad place without him and doesn’t know or want to move on from Clay.
Until the day that an unfortunate event make

I fell in love with Maggie and Clay in Finding You in the Dark. As dysfunctional as I thought they were, I knew they would over come their shadows and there would be a light at the end of their tunnel .

This Book Was Incredible , It gave Maggie and Clay their light at the end of the tunnel and I enjoyed the journey to that light with them both.

This book gave me everything that I wanted! It picks up the story several months after the ending of Find You in the Dark, and we get both Clay and Maggie’s POVs as they struggle to pick up the pieces of their lives and move on after the shattering events of the last book.

Clay and Maggie are apart for the first part of the book. Both desperately trying to find a way to move on without each other. When a tragedy brings him home to Davidson, they are thrust back into
