Review:

Since the death of her husband a few months ago, Athena Moran hasn't been able to get her life back together. Her friends have abandoned her because her husband was a police officer killed in the line of duty and to them Athena is a constant reminder of what could happen to them. Her once strong and supportive father is in a nursing home, unable to help her through her difficult time. Athena if left to raise her daughter Callie alone. The future seems bleak for Athena, but then she is offered the chance to run for mayor of her small town, Woodside Heights. It seems Dan Rossi, the current mayor, is looking for his successor and thinks Athena would be perfect for the job. Athena is reluctant at first, but accepts, hoping this will be the push she needs to join the living again. Then she meets Quentin Forbes, a writer who is new to town and seems interested in getting to know Athena. He even has a son the same age as Callie. Things seem to be looking up for Athena until Quentin finds out she's running for mayor. Convinced that Rossi is a crooked politician, he automatically assumes Athena is in on Rossi's dirty deals. As the new reporter on the city hall beat for The Woodside Herald, Quentin lets Athena know she can expect him to be in her face, questioning every action she makes as mayor. What seemed to be a blossoming friendship with Quentin has become adversarial. It becomes important to Athena to do a good job as mayor and convince Quentin that he is wrong about her. To regain their friendship and see where it leads, they have the obstacles of both the past and the present to overcome. Engrossing from beginning to end! A Different Light is true-to-life and emotionally gripping! Mariah Stewart's characters seem cut from the pages of reality! She vividly creates a small town atmosphere full of fascinating people! A wonderful story from the talented pen of Mariah Stewart! Compelling, touching, romantic! A tale of love-- both old and new!Kristina Wright -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc.
