FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF MOTHERING SUNDAY AND LAST ORDERS, and reissued for the first time on the Scribner list, The Light of Day is both a gripping crime story and a remarkable love story. On a cold but dazzling November morning George Webb, a former policeman turned private detective, prepares to visit Sarah, a prisoner and the woman he loves. As he goes about the business of the day he relives the catastrophic events of two years ago that have both bound them together and kept them apart. Making atmospheric use of its suburban setting and shot through with a plain man’s unwitting poetry and rueful humour, The Light of Day is a powerful and moving tale of murder, redemption and of the discovery, for better or worse, of the hidden forces inside us. Praise for Mothering Sunday: 'Bathed in light; and even when tragedy strikes, it blazes irresistibly… Swift’s small fiction feels like a masterpiece’ Guardian ‘Alive with sensuousness and sensuality … wonderfully accomplished, it is an achievement’ Sunday Times ‘From start to finish Swift’s is a novel of stylish brilliance and quiet narrative verve. The archly modulated, precise prose (a hybrid of Henry Green and Kazuo Ishiguro) is a glory to read. Now 66, Swift is a writer at the very top of his game’ Evening Standard ‘Mothering Sunday is a powerful, philosophical and exquisitely observed novel about the lives we lead, and the parallel lives – the parallel stories – we can never know … It may just be Swift’s best novel yet’Observer

We are longing to find something that will truly satisfy our hearts. This longing leads us into many situations and circumstances. In the end, anything we give our hearts to within this world will find its end. There is an eternal light that reveals our need and helps us understand those longings within us. Within this light, we find what will never fade away, always satisfying the human soul. What we desire most is love, but there is only one lasting love for humanity. When the sun is setting and the dark creeps in, whats revealed is only a shadow of who we really are. We are not fully known by others within this fleeting light, and many people find themselves living in the sunsets. We hope the oncoming night and passing light will reveal a bit of our beauty but hide what is perceived unacceptable or, in many cases, too real. Our spots, our imperfections, have driven our entirety into hiding. Its a humanity problem. We hide. Weve always hidden. Weve found solace in the darkness, but our worth is not lost, and our value has not faded away. We are fully known, even in the darkest of nights. The life we live now is vulnerable to darkness, but there is no need to hide for acceptance. We all have our spots, we all have hurt, but what remains hidden from humanity will not find shelter from the light. When someone is close enough to see the struggle within and provides a way out, its our opportunity to take hold of what we need and begin to trust.
What is it in our lives that have us caught in the web of confusion? the articles in this book come from the many different areas concerning life And The battles within. They cover everyday life with differing views and can bring To The front the source of our perceptions concerning God, And The troubling issues of our lives. While a few of the articles in this book speak to some argumentative issues, The content of them, As well as all of the other articles in this book, comes through the inspiration that God has given me for all of my writings. I'm not asking for everyone to agree with these articles, but I am asking that you give their content some consideration. God will adjust our hearts and align the boundaries of our convictions with His own, if we will allow Him. There is none of us that have everything right, but we all have something to offer. The life of a Christian can be complex when trying to measure up to standards that are unattainable. That's why it's important for us to understand our position in the order of God and His kingdom.Michael G. Abresch (Abe)
