The thought flickered frantically through my mind as I plummeted down to the unforgiving stone below. But my life didnt flash before my eyes the way Id always thought it was supposed to when someone was swiftly slipping into death. Instead, it was a dizzy whirl of questions slung out at me simultaneously: How? How is this happening? These ropes are sturdy- they dont just break! And this type of knot doesnt just come undone! Junior years pretty tough for Brooke- theres the heavy school load, AP exams, preparing for college, not to mention varsity tennis practice and church commitments. Brooke is as busy as can be, but she still manages to find time for her adoring little sister, her best guy friends, and a possible love interest in Enoch, the thoughtful yet mysterious guy from church. When she joins her youth group for a high-adventure rappelling trip and something goes seriously wrong, in one bated breath, a split second, her world is rocked. Rather than plummeting into sure and sudden death, she somehow miraculously defies the law of gravity and survives the forty-foot fall. And Enoch, who had been watching nearby, is nowhere to be found. Could he have been what saved her? Brookes survival leads her to find that not only is nature tirelessly ready to take her, but so is something else, a thing from the past that only masked memories can remember. Enoch might have been able to protect her before, but where she will go is so far below the only world shes ever known. Will he be able to save her now? Will they see First Light? Author Haylee Leatherman lives in San Antonio with her husband and children. First Light is her first novel.
