Many years earlier, the Sutton's and the van Cleve's fought a range war which resulted in deaths on both sides. Now the hostilities have ended but the enmity remains. When Trey van Cleve returns from war broken and crippled he means to make peace with his father and then leave. But after meeting a mysterious woman in a darkened courtyard he finds himself drawn back in the hopes of meeting her again. Deborah Sutton has chosen her lot. She would rather be single and lonely than ever trust a man. But Trey manages to break through her defences.Into the Light takes a while to get going. I was 40% into the book and not all that much had happened. But the measured pace works for the book and I found myself enjoying it for the depth of detail as much as the story.
