Light Out of Darkness

Available at

Book 1 The Waldensian Series, Light Out of Darkness

A prestigious art exhibition turns into a horrific spectacle when a murder sends an art curator and a professor on a hunt for a highly sought after stolen painting.

Jamie Holbrooke’s painful past follows her to Italy when an assailant, who looks like her dead brother, presses a mysterious riddle into her hand. Soon she discovers that her long-time paragon, Dr. Alessandro Marianni, may be linked to the enigmatic riddle. Intrigued by her questions, Alessandro’s response must wait when their colleague is murdered in cold blood in full public view. Convinced the riddle and murder are connected to the coveted stolen painting, Jamie and Alessandro set out to discover who’s responsible. At stake is a two-thousand-year-old drama, unfolding in the contemporary world of the Italian Alps.

Will Jamie and Alessandro stop powerful organized crime figures before the painting is lost forever, and with it a secret more valuable than the prized art work? Will Jamie find the answers to help her reclaim her life again? She will need the courage to face her fears and the persevering faith of Dr. Alessandro Marianni to heal her wounded heart.

For nature lovers, ski aficionados, travel enthusiasts and history scholars, the French Alps offer some of the most spectacular scenery and outdoor recreation in all Europe with its majestic mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls, unspoiled forests and quaint mountain villages. People visit to get away from the daily grind and rejuvenate their spirits.

They will have to weather a rainstorm on a mountain trail, negotiate a dangerous waterfall, outmaneuver a car chase, and defy an assassin’s gun in their search.

Will they find their beloved Luciana before it’s too late, and who will die on the way to the finish line? Who can they trust? Where will Jamie find the courage to confront her adversaries? In this sequel to Light Out of Darkness, the answers will lie in unanticipated places and with unexpected allies and require Jamie to discover what it means to trust God with undaunted valor.
