I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Norman Smithson had a great life, a wife whom he loved very much and two very beautiful daughters that was his whole life. Norman also had a great job where he was making a comfortable living. It kept his family dressed, food on the table and a nice house. But then one day poor Norman had the worst day ever. He lost his job. The company where he worked didn't someone like him anymore with all of the new technology. Poor Norman is worried about how he is going to take care of his family now and if he will be able to find another job at his age. Losing his job is not the only thing that Norman has to worry about that day or feeling bad about either. His wife leaves him and takes his girls. With losing his wife and job both on the same day put Norman in a bad place. He starts hanging out at bar and trying to lose all of his problems in a bottle.

Rosa is a woman who is all broken up inside. She never had a childhood like most children with a loving mother and father. Her mother was always bringing men home with her and both of them would be flying high on one thing or another. It never really matter to her mother what it was as long as she was high. Rosa had to see and do things that no child should ever have to see or go through.

When Norman meets Rosa he just happens to be in the wrong place at the right time. He meets Rosa and her boyfriend in a dark alley one night on his way home from a bar where he had been trying to drown his troubles in the bottom of a bottle of booze. Rosa is being attacked so Norman hears her screaming and he can't just walk away and pretend he never heard anything. So he decides to step in and help Rosa. But he may have chewed off more than he can handle. He just may have caused him and Rosa their lives.

Norman and Rosa both have been through some hard times in their lives. They may not have been through the same thing but they are both broken people. Can they save each other from becoming someone they don't won't to be or will they become the people they have always wanted to be? Are they both strong enough to fix what is wrong in their lives and make it right so they can be happy and unbroken? Norman and Rosa both had to experience and go through what they did in their lives to be the people they are now so that they could be together and become the person they are today.

I have read both of Dianna's Series The Witching Pen and Eye of the Storm and loved them both. Even though Broken Lights was a different genre it did not matter in the least it was just as good as all of the others that I have read. Dianna knows how to tell each and every one of her character's story as if it was her own life that she is talking about and sometimes you feel as if she has been in your own head as if you are one of the characters.

If you haven't picked up your copy of Broken Lights then I highly recommend that you do. If you have read it or already have your own copy then I am sure that you know a book lover out there that would love receiving Broken Lights as a Christmas present with Christmas just right around the corner.
