In Another Light: A Novel

We rated this book:


It’s been three years since Phoebe’s life-changing accident, and everyone, including herself, wonders how she’ll keep going. Three years ago, Phoebe lost everything and coasts through her days since; working in a mortuary might not help too much, either. One day, the body of a younger woman arrives at the morgue, causing Phoebe to question everything she thought she knew about herself and those closest to her and see things //In Another Light//. Phoebe feels it is up to her to discover her truth as she can’t trust anyone; will she find what she needs in time or succumb to the mind’s twisted ways?

I thoroughly enjoyed In Another Light; the story made me feel so much that it confused me at times. I loved the awareness it brought to mental health. I noticed similarities in Banner’s current work as her previous novel, After Nightfall, along with authors Paula Hawkins, Gillian Flynn, and Liane Moriarty. The common theme seems to be vigorous females driven by the actions of a confused male who doesn’t know how to act appropriately around women. The story is in bite-sized pieces, enough to keep you going with a dull chapter nowhere in sight.
