An emotionally moving novel of a woman in search of a new beginning and a man haunted by the past--from the New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels. At thirty-two, Jillian Parrish finally finds the courage to put herself in the driver's seat of her life.  Pregnant and recently divorced, she and her seven-year-old daughter find refuge and solace on Pawleys Island, South Carolina--Jillian's only source of happy childhood memories. Summers spent at her grandmother's beach house had been Jillian's sanctuary from indifferent parents--until her best friend Lauren Mills disappeared, never to be found. Linc Rising, Lauren's boyfriend and Jillian's confidant, had been a suspect in Lauren's disappearance. Jillian had never doubted his innocence--but because her parents had whisked her back home to Atlanta, she never got a chance to tell him. Now, a resentful Linc is back on Pawleys Island--renovating the old Mills house. And as ghosts of the past are resurrected, and as Jillian's daughter begins having eerie conversations with an imaginary friend named Lauren, Jillian and Linc will uncover the truth about Lauren's disappearance and about the feelings they have buried for sixteen years...… (lisätietoja)

I just finished reading The Color of Light by Karen White and would highly recommend it. I thought it was an excellent book. The main character, Jillian grew up with distant and abusive parents. She spent her life trying to make her parents care about her. Because of how her parents treated her, she is afraid that she is/will be a terrible mother.

Jillian's refuge was her grandmother's house on Pawley's Island. Her grandmother was more of a mother to her than her own mother.

While a teenager one of her best friends disappeared and the best friend's boyfriend was accused of her disappearance. The book delves into this mystery and how this episode shaped Jillian and Linc (the boyfriend) and their need to come back to Pawley's Island.

The book opens with a pregnant Jillian moving back to Pawley's Island with her 6 year old daughter. She has come back to heal after her divorce and to discover who she is. Jillian's daughter calls her Jilly-bean instead of Mommy. Over the course of the book, Jillian discovers who she is as a mother and discovers she likes it and is a good mother.

The Color of Light. Karen White. 2005. What an easy read after Blood Meridian and Wise Blood. White is a step above a lot of Southern Romance writers. She reminds me of Anne Rivers Siddons. Just divorced, pregnant Jillian takes her young daughter and returns to Pawley’s Island, N.C. The island is the only place she’s ever felt safe and loved. Grace, her daughter, who has imaginary friends immediately starts talking to a new friend, Lauren. Lauren is the name of Jillian’s best friend who disappeared without a trace years ago. Linc has also returned to the island. He was Lauren’s boyfriend who was blamed for her disappearance. There you have it: all the elements for a good southern romance! ( )
