Here’s a short excerpt from the audiobook of The Light We Lost (narrated by me!). Thanks to Reese Witherspoon for posting it.
This is the team who worked on the German edition of The Light We Lost — or as it’s called in Germany, Was Bleibt Sind Wir. Danke schon! (Don’t they look lovely? I hope I get to meet them in person one day.)
This article from Nine.com.au talks about books that Hollywood celebrities recommend. Reese Witherspoon’s recommendation of The Light We Lost for the Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine is in there. And so is my Putnam Books pal Chloe Benjamin’s book, The Immortalists, recommended by Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss at Belletrist. (I recommend it, too.)
It arrived in NYC!
I’m so, so honored that Reese Witherspoon chose The Light We Lost as her February Book Club Pick for Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine. What a Tuesday morning it was when I saw this video!
"Our February pick is all about the different kinds of Love – the kind that engulfs you like a wildfire and the kind that keeps you warm like a hearth fire. This love story between Lucy & Gabe spans decades and continents as two star-crossed lovers try to return to each other. Life, motherhood, and distance get in the way. Will they ever meet again? This book kept me up at night, turning the pages to find out, and the ending did not disappoint." – Reese Witherspoon #rbcxhs #thelightwelost by Jill Santopolo, Author

To celebrate World Read Aloud Day, I read the first page of The Light We Lost out loud. If you click below, you can hear it. (You can also hear me as the narrator on the audiobook.)
I met the translator who translated The Light We Lost into Hebrew on Twitter when she shared this cover. So cool to see it. (And to electronically meet her!)
