Product Details


“Beautifully captured, like a photograph of a stolen moment. I ached for Marigold in her journey to move forward while not forgetting her past. Kate Sweeney’s Catch the Light overflows with grief, love, and growing up.”–Amy Spalding, bestselling author of We Used to Be Friends
“Rendered with care and tenderness, Catch the Light is bound to resonate with anyone who has been uprooted by grief and has to forge a new path ahead whilhe yearning for what was lost. Marigold’s odyssey of discovery may be full of imperfections and slip-ups along the way, but it’s authentic and true to life. Kate Sweeney’s debut is lovely, poignant, and certainly not one to miss.”–Kalie Barnes-Young, B&N at the Grove in Los Angeles

*“Healing through art is a theme to which Sweeney, who is also a singer-songwriter, does beautiful justice. Her expressive prose renders quotable lines on nearly every page of Catch the Light as Marigold opens herself up to inhabiting the new life she’s forging after—and despite—her great loss. Catch the Light is an affecting and affirming case for the painful, transformative inevitability of hope in the face of heartache.”BookPage (starred review)
“An edgy love story in which everyone seems to have a secret to hide.”Kirkus Reviews
“Sweeney writes with fluid elegance, effectively capturing the foggy disengagement often conferred by mourning…[while the romance] offers plenty of sweetness despite the shadows”–BCCB

“A captivating study of the ways grief affects families, friendships, and the very idea of love.”–Booklist
