Reviews of Morning Light

Morning Light Nancy King puts this tale together like a jigsaw puzzle—flashes of multiple points of view, immersing readers in the minds and hearts of people who influence the heroine Anna for good or bad. Anna's story reverses the old movie "It's a Wonderful Life." Instead of the main character realizing the influence she's had on others, she discovers how to thank others for their influences on her.

Nancy King strikes a blanace between the darkness of abuse and major illness, and lightness of discovering life's unexpected joys. Morning Light is for readers who know the tough road to growth when coming of age.

Ms. King handles the craft of writing with style. Her shifts in character point of view work well... the blend of family stories, traditional tales, and fictional narrative make the book intriguing.

I would happily read anything you are writing.  Like I said, I have bits.  I need to figure out how to pull those bit together.  Morning Light had an interesting structure--the present, the past, a story.  I loved your origin, why and once stories.  They made me remember that I still have everything I worked on from the Journeys Into Myth class I took with you at Delaware in the early 80s. I still have the poster for the show we arranged around that class. That class happened at time of first awakening for me.  You seem to be present in my life at huge times of transition. Now is a second awakening.

The beauty of this book lies in its layered use of the healing power of story. Not only does Nancy King gift us with the courageous journey of Anna out of the vortex of abuse, but she nests stories within stories that lead to a victory both brave and hard won.
