Well this was exciting to see! It’s a review of The Light We Lost in the NY Post!
I am so extra beyond thrilled that theSkimm chose The Light We Lost to be the first book in their Skimm Reads partnership with Target!!! And love this quote. “This read is One Day meets Me Before You meets your long weekend bag.” The article about all of that is right here.
The Light We Lost was included in the list of Pop Fiction Previews for May 2017 in Library Journal. This is what they had to say about it:
Santopolo, Jill. The Light We Lost. Putnam. May 2017. 336p. ISBN 9780735212756. $25; ebk. ISBN 9780735212770. CD/downloadable: Penguin Audio. WOMEN’S
The editorial director of Philomel Books, Santopolo has three children’s/YA series to her name, but here she’s going adult. Lucy and Gabe meet one fateful day as seniors at Columbia University, then meet again a year later and decide it’s meant to be. But photojournalist Gabe is assigned to the Middle East, while Lucy pursues a career in New York, and more than a decade of love, jealousy, and turmoil follow until a key decision must be made. Rights for this novel sold quickly to 25 countries, and the prepublication buzz has been big.
You can read the whole list of Pop Fiction Preview books here, if you’d like (warning: it’s dangerous–reading the descriptions made me want to buy all of them).
It was so lovely to see The Bookseller announce the deal for The Light We Lost in the UK. (HQ, an imprint of HarperCollins, will be publishing it there, releasing it in August 2017, just like Putnam will be doing in the US.)
