9781602855298: Sometimes a Light Surprises (Center Point Christian Fiction (Large Print))

Though it was years ago, Ben Buckley has never gotten over the loss of his wife. But even more than the mystery surrounding her death is the radical change that occurred in her life shortly beforehand. Their marriage was unusually happy--until she met a woman who "turned her on to religion." Baffled, angry, and still feeling guilty for the way he treated Chloe those final weeks, Ben now lives behind the protective walls of severed relationships and a rigid work routine.

When two unlikely people enter his narrow world, Ben's view of his life begins to change, and gradually the barriers he's erected around himself come tumbling down.

From the Back Cover:

He had drawn the curtains tightly around his soul--could he trust that glimmer of hope quietly beckoning to him? Ben Buckley has never gotten over the loss of his wife. More bewildering than the mystery surrounding her death is the radical change that occurred in her shortly beforehand--a "conversion," she had called it. Baffled, angry, and still feeling guilty for the way he'd withdrawn from her during those final weeks, Ben now lives behind the protective walls of severed relationships and rigid routines. An unlikely young woman knocks on the door of his narrow world. Her simple honesty and childlike faith are incomprehensible to him, but in spite of his misgivings Ben finds himself on a journey he never would have begun on his own. "Turner's writing is often so elegant, so detailed, and so richly textured that her books have distinguished themselves in a category all their own."--FaithfulReader Jamie Langston Turner, acclaimed author of seven novels and winner of two Christy Awards, has been a teacher for thirty-seven years. Currently a professor of creative writing at Bob Jones University, she lives with her husband in Greenville, South Carolina.
