To truly appreciate the light one must know of great darkness; to find a pure and simple joy requires that one also know of deep and penetrating sorrow. Only by confronting this terrible opposition can one discover the power of hope.
These four tales by international award-winning author Scott Everett Bronson engage this fundamental conundrum by exploring the darkness that reveals the brightest edge of light.
"I like Scott Bronson's writing. His tales are not always easy but they reveal hidden beauty in the world." --David Farland
"A collection of four stories that each begin in darkness--in suffering, sorrow, pain, fear, terror, and outright horror.... Reading Darkness on the Edge of Light becomes in essence an experience of grace and restoration. But if that comment implies that there is religious content in the stories, readers need not quail before the prospect of a sermon. Bronson’s stories are stories; his characters, far more than set-pieces to be shifted back and forth to meet some ill-defined theological norm; his plots, explorations of fundamental human truths rather than of doctrinal superficialities." --Michael R. Collings
