Lying unconscious in a hospital bed, Maddie can hear her beloved husband whispering words of intimacy, love and hope. Gently beckoning her back to him, Paul reminds Maddie of their journey from friendship to their deep abiding love and the fears, heartache and hope that shaped their relationship.
Maddie feels suffocated by the darkness pressing upon her, as it dredges up her past pain and the blackness that threatened to consume her and her relationship with Paul in those early days. When she tires of fighting, Paul’s love and commitment, so evident in his voice, woos her once again to reach past her physical and emotional pain and find his arms again.
Beyond the Night is a hauntingly beautiful tale of love lost and found, hope destroyed and restored with an ending that brought me to tears and filled me with joy! Marlo Schalesky’s insight into the human heart is exceptional and her talent with the written word, indisputable. This story will inspire you to love more generously, persevere during hardship, embrace hope and seek God. Beyond the Night is the first in Marlo’s Love Stories With a Twist series and leaves me highly anticipating each story that will follow.
