Product Details


*”A beautifully written story about grief, love, and not just discovering who you are but finding the courage to declare, “This is who I am!” before the world…This is a must-read for music fans and romantics who believe in destiny but know fate alone can’t hold up a relationship—even true love needs you to put in the work.”–Booklist (starred review)

“Music fans will especially enjoy this story of two people learning to trust themselves—and each other.”–Kirkus Reviews

“Amplifying raw emotion through imagery-rich prose, Sweeney explores mental health and the transition to adulthood…[and] captures the sensory immersion of musical performance…via lyrical alternating perspectives.”–Publishers Weekly


“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

*“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
