Aurora forgot to ask youth for her lover, and though Tithonus is immortal, he is old. Achilles is not quite invulnerable; the sacred waters did not wash the heel by which Thetis held him. And so it must be. There is a crack in every thing God has made. It would seem, there is always this vindictive circumstance stealing in at unawares, even into the wild poesy in which the human fancy attempted to make bold holiday, and to shake itself free of the old laws, — this back-stroke, this kick of the gun, certifying that the law is fatal; that in nature nothing can be given, all things are sold.

This story was so heart-breakingly beautiful that you will want to demolish the shit out of it! You will want to go back and read it again! I picked this up on Amazon without reading the blurb or any other reviews so everything about it was a surprise. I can't believe this was a debut novel!

I absolutely adored it! If you are anything like me you will be hooked from the prologue.. This is the story of Isabel, her family life and mainly about her relationships with Jesse and Alex. Isabel and Jesse have instant off the charts chemistry! They have a relationship for 7 years.

They are each others everything! So what could go wrong? I hear you asking.. Jesse is insecure due to Isabels beauty and her wealth. All he wants is to be the best for Isabel, it's just that it will take time.. We see their relationship grow from friends to lovers over the years. Stating he is willing to do anything what will she do? Why can't you? Can't you see how much I love you? Choose me. You'll have to read it find out! Ok so the storyline, the timeline, the characters everything about this book was awesome and I even liked the ending! I'm scared about a second book though As I said I liked the ending.

I was happy with it GAH I don't know what will happen in a second book!! But I do know I will be there on release day waiting to find out! So go on give a debut author a chance I dare you too! View all 23 comments. Jul 23, Kirsty rated it it was amazing Shelves: favourites , read-in I can not believe that this is Christine Brae 's debut novel. Where have you been hiding? The writing was flawless. Right from the off I was engaged and I wanted to know everything.

The prologue was so captivating that, when I started reading late at night, I found myself carrying on until my eyes couldn't take anymore! I'm now sat here writing my review, wondering how on earth I am going to possibly do it justice? For me, I find it the hardest writing a 5 star review that I loved so much. How do I find the words to give the book the credit it deserves? As I said, the prologue has you hooked. We then are in the present, with more clues and snippets in to Isabel's life, before we are taken back to where it all started - Isabel as a child.

I can't recall reading a book where we are given so many important detail about the characters life. If you had told me this beforehand, I may have worried, "Would I be bored by all of the history? Every single piece of information told is vital. So important in the understanding of Isabel. I guess this book is a love triangle. Isabel is with, and had spent 7 years with Jesse, whom she believes is the love of her life. She has stood by him through thick and thin, given up her dreams when he asked, foregone certainly clothes and make up.

You name it. All to please the love of her life. But what does she get in return? She loses herself. Slowly, piece by piece, we witness Isabel losing parts of herself, becoming a shell of the person she used to be.

A Path To Healing: The Wound is the Place Where the Light Enters You | HuffPost

It was so heart breaking. So, when Alex, a guy she has been friends with for years, starts to show more of an interest in her, how is she supposed to refuse? Yes, I could see he loved Isabel but it was never with his full heart. Alex on the other hand, he never wavered from his love for Isabel, all the times she wasn't his, he never let her go.

He never gave up. Christine Brae didn't make it easy for me when choosing my winner, but in the end, Alex would always win hands down. I just wanted Isabel to make that decision too. There was back and forth, there were times when I wanted to crawl in to my Kindle and choke her, but ultimately I understood every single good and bad decision that she made. Again, I don't know how I can sum up how incredible this book was and how much I loved it.

The characters were unique, the writing was out of this world and the story was unlike anything I've read. There wasn't a polished, pretty, tied up in a bow happily ever after, but there was a real, honest and full of love one. Each character got where they needed to be and I was full on crying happy tears when I got there too. It's more careful, more cautious. But it's still love and when it comes with respect and admiration and friendship, it trumps passion and elation any time.

I was a bit leery about switching genres and if I would be able to find a book that would hold my attention after being on a Zombie Apocalypse phase. I couldn't have gotten luckier than starting with a book like this. The characters are perfectly developed Ms Brae is amazing at drawing out everything single emotion I hold 5 Who do I pick Stars I started this book a few hours ago and only put it down for a few minutes to get a shower - that is how invested I was in these characters and this story.

Ms Brae is amazing at drawing out everything single emotion I hold in my heart. I went from hating characters to loving them - to changing my mind so many times with how I wanted the story to progress My heart was torn in two and the one character who I really thought I hated I ended up crying for them. Now, that being said - I am going to skip the next book in this series. Not because I don't like Ms. Brae's writing but because at this time, I loved how the first book ended and I want to continue to have happy thoughts So, I don't want to be disappointed.

I pretty much highlighted the whole book. I felt I was right by her side when she is faced with her firsts, losses, heartaches, and accomplishments. I caught myself so involved and had to constantly remind myself that Isabel along with the other MCs were fictional. I wanted to support and protect her, steer her in the right direction, making the right choices. God knows, her mother was not a role model and her father was never in the picture.

There is unconditional love that forgives no matter how much hurt is thrown your way When you love someone, their happiness elates you and their sorrow kills you Isabel, a young lady, privileged, beautiful, smart and her life was just perfect. Money was never a problem. It was all a facade. Her relationship with her mother, Claudia, was not what it was cracked-up to be. All Isa ever wanted was love and acceptance. She was determined to find the right person to fill this void in her life. Half the time, I wanted to beat the living daylights out of him with my Kindle, but then that would not be fair.

He wanted to go places, achieve the utmost goals in life and be ever so successful. All for a girl named Isabel. He is gorgeous in so many ways, and not talking about his looks. Mix in some qualities Respectful, a protector, loving and caring. It was love at first sight for Alex when he came across Isabel. But he believed her heart was already taken. ALEX Ben Affleck Smelled like sweet licorice; Smelled like cool grass and sun You will be so engrossed in the lives of each and every character that graces the pages. Turmoil is the feeling you will have in the pit of your stomach and your emotions are tested to the very end.

Will Isabel choose Jesse, the first love of her life? Or Alex? The most painful thing is losing yourself in he process of loving someone too much and forgetting that you are special too Ms. The story was so real and emotional. I was astounded by the fact that this was her first story. Outstanding job!! I cannot wait for more works from her. Dive into the world of Isabel, Jesse and Alex. Jul 24, The Reads rated it it was amazing. I write this with tears streaming down my face.

This book tore at my very soul, and shattered my heart into little pieces. This story was powerful, thought provoking and an emotional rollercoaster that I will not be able to forget. We have all been young, we all make mistakes, we all get hurt and we all have to take this and integrate it into our lifes and learn valuable lessons. In my honest opinion I found this book extremely intense and very angsty, but its that that has made such an incredible read, I found both my gut churning and my heart beating almost out of its chest at times.

I am not a huge fan of love triangles but this was so heart wrenching but so tastefully done, for once it wasn't all about the sex it was about the beautiful love three people shared. That Prologue was damn intense and I just knew this was going to be an emotional rollercoaster! Isabel - Isabel along with her sisters had a very tough upbringing. Their mother was very unstable emotionally and often this led to her not being able to look after her three girls the way she should have.

Isabel basically was raised by her grandparents whilst her sisters stayed with her father's parents. When Isabel is finally ready to come home to her mother, she meets the sexy, baseball playing Jesse. Instant sexual chemistry batting between them both. They date for numerous years but slowly and surely Jesse starts to take away Isabel's identity and control's her and not in a sexy way either. Isabel in my god honest opinion could act pretty dumb! Taking Jesse back time and again but nothing changes. I genuinely believe that Issy was so blinded by love that she couldn't see past him.

At the turning point in the book however, she grows a backbone and does something that will ultimately make her happy instead of everyone else. That was for sure a reedeming moment. Jesse - Dear god, this character, Ruined. I'll be honest he was a complete dick in the first half of the book, he constantly was controlling Issy and he took her for granted. I felt very uncomfortable with how he treated her and I wanted nothing more for her to kick him to the kerb. Second half of the book you say? Well he broke my fucking heart! His pain, gutted me alive!

I cried for him, I shouted for him. My stomach was churning with his loss. Never a truer saying, "you don't know what you have until its gone. The writing in those scenes was Powerful. To think I've built all this by dealing with all sorts of people and situations and yet YOU have the ability to break me, make me crumble into fucking pieces! Alex - Oh Alex how I swooned over you. The guy is a bloody hero. He showed to Issy what it was like to experience pure friendship, heart stopping love, complete and utter devotion and a never ending passion.

I loved him. However, his pain at wanting her and needing her whilst her heart belonged to another killed me too. If only it was so easy to please everyone at once. Alex IS the love she needed, the love that would heal her, to cover up the old wounds. I guess his character really affected me. View 2 comments.

This story truly sucked me in, I didn't want to put it down. You know when you finish a book that it is going to be one that sticks with for a long time This book will forever live in my head. The emotions that this book exudes was beyond amazing. The author made this book feel so realistic.

Every feeling that Isabel felt during this journey I felt with her. This was a book that made me think what I would do in this situation. I would like to think I would make the right choice but I just don't know. I don't want to say to much more because it would truly spoil this story but I will say that this was a book about first loves, loves lost and then found, and truly about realizing what is the best for yourself.

I felt that the book flowed really well and that by the end we get closure on this story. I will also say that this was one of the cleanest books I have read in a long time, when it comes to grammar and editing. I didn't notice any misspelled words or wrong words used. Let me tell you that is really refreshing. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for an emotional love story about first loves and making the right decision.

I thought this was a wonderful debut novel!!! Overall, I really appreciated the story and message. First love vs second love - the differences between the two and how to choose what is right for yourself. Isa struggled with this throughout the story, and at times it seemed redundant. That said, it was understandable - first love has a special kind of magic, even if it was an unhealthy relationship.

When we are young we can be so narrow-sighted. Jesse was consumed with trying to prove himself and Isa only wanted to please him. And Alex was t Overall, I really appreciated the story and message. And Alex was the best friend waiting. Jesse was controlling, driven, and at times very sweet I still wanted to punch him in the throat a few times.

Alex was patient and understanding. The relationships between these three span about 15 years, there is angst, heartbreak, anger, and loss - but also hope, love and truth.

“The Light in the Wound” by Christine Brae (A Book Review)

These characters frustrated me, but i could relate. I loved that Splendor in the Grass was referenced, it has always been one of my favorite movies - and this book had that feel. What though the radiance which was once so bright Be now for ever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; We will grieve not, rather find Strength in what remains behind Aug 07, Kirsten P rated it it was amazing. Mesmerizing, emotionally charged debut novel. Christine Brae had me enthralled with her beautifully written prologue, and it only got better with each word that followed.

Simply stunning. Loved every minute of this. Full review to follow. View 1 comment.

Well, that is what this amazing book, The Light in the Wound is about. This is Isabel's story of transitioning from childhood to womanhood and of choosin 4. This is Isabel's story of transitioning from childhood to womanhood and of choosing between her first love and her second chance at love, who also happens to be her best friend. As I sit here with tears running down my face, I can say two things with the utmost certainty. First, this is one of the best "love triangle" love stories that I have ever read! And second, this book deserves soooooo much more acclaim and recognition than it has received!

So, if you haven't read this yet The only thing that I struggled with here was that there was a lot of telling me vs. I know that this comes with growing as a writer, and that this was Christine's first book.

More From Thought Catalog

But it does occur more than a few times where a statement is made and it comes across as coming out of nowhere because it hasn't been developed into the story at all; it is just being stated, and you just have to be like, oh ok. That was really it though. I love when I story grabs you and immerses you into its world, and that is what this book does.

OH GOD, that prologue! It is just one page long, but long enough that it instantly grabbed me and pulled me into the story. It's a snippet from the future, to Isabel's wedding day. It immediately leaves you wondering For the whole book, I was wondering when that scene was going to come into play, and when it did, I was shocked!! Because the people that I had assumed were involved were not the ones that actually were! Following this bomb, the story begins 10 years in the future for a brief amount of time. We know that Isabel is married, but we don't know to whom. We also know that she has just experienced a huge loss.

After this, the story goes back into her past. We follow Isabel through her childhood, and through her parents' highly publicized and nasty divorce. Her mother is one of those characters who the phrase "the road to hell is paved with good intentions" was pretty much coined after. She loves her children deeply and wants to be a good mother, but her life is perpetually a hot mess and so is she. Isabel therefore, has to assume the role of leader and caretaker many times throughout her late childhood and into adolescence.

She hopes that her mother can change and be better but she accepts when she cannot. Yep, Isabel is pretty much the luckiest bitch in the world to have had the love of both of these gorgeous, passionate, accomplished, devoted men. I also sympathized with both Alex and Jesse at different times.

Yes, these characters are all really young when these love stories begin, so they make a lot of mistakes. But still, one of them loves her in his way. And his way is possessive, demeaning, and isolating. And she takes it, and takes it, and takes it because she is blinded by her love for him, and needs the validation in her life that she feels only he can give her. And then she walks away!!! I was running around my house doing a happy dance!!!

But does she stay away? Can she stay away? He is sorry, or so he says. Time passes. He has changed What does she do? He doesn't know how to let her go. He can't accept the fact that she is trying to move on. I don't want to go into too much more detail than that because I don't want to give anything away. If they weren't good to you the first time, they've lost their chance to gain your loyalty and trust. What makes you think it will be better the next time?

I wanted to reach into my iPad and high-five your ass!! Truer words have never been spoken, girlfriend!! Burning your hand once is the only way you'll ever remember never to touch an open fire. They both love her and she loves both of them, despite their flaws. But Isabel is also very confused and has other feeling besides love wrapped up in her feelings for one of these men like guilt, obligation, fear I will shut up now before I give it all away!!

I want to be owned. Being owned means never being alone. I went through something very similar to what Isabel experiences with her parents' divorce and the fallout after, and it too shaped my life. I can just say that, I think that everything that she went through was genuine because, I went through so much of the same. Yes, I still wanted to choke her at times, but I understood her struggles. Another thing that made this story so special for me was this To know that this is based on her own story to whatever degree, just blew me away.

That takes an incredible amount of courage!! I know I couldn't do it. And again, this is more than a love story. The part at the end view spoiler [ when her mother passes away, and that whole scene with the funeral OMG, I haven't cried that hard in ages. It ripped my heart out! Will you want to choke one or all of these characters several times throughout the story?

But, the journey is so worth it, and so beautiful. It was impossible to put down, hi-jacked my thoughts and emotions for the last three days, and is one of the most beautiful stories about love, life, and growing up that I have ever had the pleasure of reading!! There were things that frustrated me about these characters.

And little things here and there that I could've done without. For example, the continuous focus on Isabel's wealth and privilege. I just really don't care about that and makes me sometimes lose my connection with a MC. In this case it didn't but Any book that can do that? Especially with as much as I read? Is greatness I will be thinking about Isabel, Alex and Jesse for a long time to come. There may be a scar but it serves its purpose to remind me of the undeniable love that we once had. A love I'll never forget.

To me, nothing is better than picking up a book and then relating to it. And yes, this can mean relating in negative ways. So many people can tell you to read a self-help book, but honestly, what better way for a book to help you than to read just a regular book and find it relatable.

And therein lies my experience with The Light in The Wound. This book addresses First Love and True Love and in my mind, loyalty. I felt mind fucked, but in a good way? Is that possible? The book is about Isabel. I felt like she was a real person in my life. We are taken back to her life as a young girl and we see her family dynamic. She lives with her mother who is a few fries short of a happy meal. Isa maintains stability in her life by looking at what her mother has become and resolving never to be her.

BUT, she continually is there for her mother when need be. There is unconditional love that forgives no matter how much hurt is thrown your way. There is relentless hope that a person can change and a compelling belief that things can only get better. There is acceptance. Only Isa is so blinded by her love for him that she goes along with it. Only with me. His only concern is ambition and becoming successful so her family will accept him.

She lost herself. And she lets it happen. I need to share this with every girl I know. Every guy I know. I, myself, need to live by this. But, do we ever really know how things might turn out in the future? All we have is today. There are always going to be consequences to our choices, whether they turn out to be good or bad. YES Isa…my god, you speak truth.

In the end, when the chips are down, Isa must choose. She certainly owns his. View all 3 comments. Jun 24, Melissa rated it really liked it. After reading the prologue I set the book down and growled. I wanted to throw it out my window.

Needless to say I came back the next day and started chapter one. I wanted to know what happened, but if what I thought happened did happen I was going to be one extremely pissed off person. There are some things in life, in marriage, in relationships that I just cannot tolerate. I feel like strangling someone. Kudos to Christine Brae for that lest sentence in the prologue.

It swallowed me whole. Overall the book read a lot like present-day storytelling and then past diary reflection. And for this book it worked. Isa and Jesse and Alex. That pretty much sums up my turmoil throughout reading. And since I went in with no expectations of what was going to happen, I was biting my nails until the last chapter. And that potential scared the crap out of me. The book is an in-depth, personal look into the life of a young woman named Isabel. It showcases her entire life from childhood up until early adulthood. Her fears, her heartaches, her family problems, her relationship problems, her friendships, her loses and her successes.

I read it in two sittings and that speaks volumes about the flow and drive of the story. She kept me wanting more. There were portions of the story here and there that felt weighted and unnecessary. Moments where she fell into telling me instead of showing me, but these are aspects of writing that become cleaner and cleaner as the author becomes more seasoned. I have high hopes for her and her future works.

The title, while ambiguous before reading it, made so much sense after and I think was the perfect choice. I believe many women will read this and relate to Isa on some level. Whether it be her sordid family past, the unfortunate feeling of not knowing your own worth, her tumultuous and often gut-wrenching relationship with her mother or the simple fact of not knowing what to do when your heart loves two people.

Truly loves two people. It simply held me. Not just pieces. Job well done. Fantastic debut novel. Jun 18, Tee loves Kyle Jacobson rated it it was amazing Shelves: must-read , new-book-release , blog-tour-review , july The Light in the Wound is an amazing read! Lord I have read a ton of books in my lifetime but never ever have I ever been so slammed in the heart by a book. This book I could relate to it is my life and as I was reading it I was totally there reliving things I have done and said and been through for the past twenty years.

I laughed and I cried and I screamed at my kindle and at one point I just thought I was not going to be able to finish it because it struck a nerve but I read on and believe me The Light in the Wound is an amazing read! I laughed and I cried and I screamed at my kindle and at one point I just thought I was not going to be able to finish it because it struck a nerve but I read on and believe me Issy has a better ending than I do so I was so happy about that.

We meet Isabel whose parents are going through a very nasty publicized divorce. As a result of this pending divorce Issy is sent away to boarding schools and her grandparents home and back. It is when she is finally back home that she enrolls in school and meets Jesse. She has sworn off any kind of love because she does not want to end up like her parents and she does not want to suffer any more loss. So when she and Jesse get close and she falls for him she is surprised because she sworn off love.

But Jesse is different and he loves Issy and Issy is head over heels in love with him. But then things change and Jesse becomes controlling and starts to take things from her like her new friends and her ability to make decisions. Jesse even goes so far as to take the one love and passion she has and that is horse back riding.

Jesse turns out to be a selfish controlling bastard and he takes over Issy's life. Jesse pays attention to her when he sees fit and gives her whatever he wants to and when he feels like being rude he is to Issy. The only person he has not run off is Issy's friend Alex. Alex loves Issy and he is willing to wait for her to open up her eyes and see what she has right in front of her. So when Issy has had enough and Jesse has pushed her to the point she breaks it off with him.

She and Alex then start to build a stronger friendship that turns to love but Issy is closed off and only going through the motions to get over Jesse. She still loves Jesse and if he would take her back she would go to him. Issy and Alex have a long battle ahead of them because Jesse has had an epiphany and wants Issy back and ALex is about to fight to the death for the girl he loves. Will Issy turn her back on ALex and go back to Jesse?

Will Alex be able to keep Issy and gain her heart? This book is such a roller coaster of emotions that you will need a box of tissues for this one! View all 15 comments.

When we talked about this book, it was obvious to me how important and clo FREE right now! When we talked about this book, it was obvious to me how important and close to her heart this story and the characters are to her.

Christine told me that she had a story to tell and she wanted to share it. Christine has made no secret in recent interviews when asked how she was inspired to write this story…. I was so honored to hold her hand through this tough process of waiting to hear what everyone was going to think and say about her story and the characters so dear to her heart. I am happy to say that after hearing reactions and seeing the reviews, Christine has definitely delivered with this debut novel! Well, this time that was literally what I was doing and it was handed over to me with permission.

As always, I felt I had to tell you this so you could experience the book the same way that I have. Of course, I have the slight advantage of knowing Christine through my blog before reading her book. BUT, I did not know how the book was going to end, who she was going to choose or the journey she took to get there.

Without giving anything away, when I read the prologue it starts off in the past , I think my jaw hit the floor! What did she just say???? Ok, truth be told, NOW she had me hooked! I had to find out the What? What I thought I would be getting with The Light in the Wound and what I actually read, were two very different things. However, there is a love story that just may break your heart, and you all know I am a sucker for a love story!

Hell, I have even experienced it! We begin the journey with Isa in her childhood years to truly understand Isa and the choices she makes throughout the book, you need to see where she is coming from by hearing about her background, her upbringing, her family. I am not going to lie, but more prepare you, I know a lot of you will be frustrated with Isa and the choices she makes. I am hoping there are no spoilers that you have read anywhere…. My advice to you, finish the book before you make your decision if you like it, love it or or even if you think you know what is going to happen. I had no clue what was going to happen in the end I was waiting for the twists when one was not coming and then getting the twists and turns where I did not think there would be one!

Although this story was written to be a stand-alone ….. Pick this one up today and find out if second love can ever be enough to make you forget your first. Thank you Christine for sharing your story with us and for putting your trust in me to help spread the word! Jul 12, Beth rated it really liked it. That clanging sound. It's Alarm Bells. The Alarm Bells everyone around Isabel should have been hearing. Why can they not hear them? I heard them loud and clear from all the way over here in Texas. The story begins with a Kick Ass Prologue. I was hooked. I was intrigued. I want to know the who, the why, the what the hooey happened to get to THAT point where the prologue takes us.

Issy has spent a lot of time alone. She was shipped off to boarding school, her grandparents house, basically any place that her mom did not have to be involved. When Issy takes a stand and decided to move back home and go to school with her friends, she meets Jessie.

Jessie is a cute baseball player who quickly turns into a controlling cute baseball player. Jessie tells Issy what to wear. He takes away her one passion, riding horses. Are you hearing Alarm Bells yet? Issy realizes what is happening, but she is so in need of validation that she allows it.

By this time, I had noticed more changes in the way I saw myself. I had become shy and withdrawn, insecure and jealous. As Jessie exerts more control, Issy lets him. She is desperate to be important to someone. Alarm Bells yet? Yeah I thought so. This is something much darker.
