"Incredibly well written, with powerful prose and stunningly well observed characterization, Light Weaver is a delight to read from beginning to end, a captivating page turner that I would highly recommend to anyone." – Reader ReviewStrange and inexplicable things are happening in the Lakeland fells… light orbs dance over mossy crags, symbols miraculously appear in grassy lowlands, and Cali Silverthorn keeps disappearing into other worlds.Mobile librarian, Tom Philips, is captivated by free-spirited Cali but is struggling to make sense of her remarkable abilities and the escalating strangeness impacting ordinary rural life.As beliefs are challenged, Tom and Cali’s love becomes the only constant in a questionable reality as they face the heart-breaking realization that Cali may soon disappear for good.Light Weaver, the debut novel by Carol Anne Strange, is a story set in the English Lake District where everyday life collides with otherworldly happenings.
A Few Reader Reviews:‘A lovely, lyrical love story …The love of nature and the earth are so poetically drawn.’‘Enter a world of possibilities … It’s a chocolate bar of a book, one that’s savoured in bite-sized chunks of indulgence.’‘A beautiful sense of place … It’s set in the English Lake District and the descriptions of the landscape are beautifully expressed. The language used is exquisite …’‘Light Weaver spins a tale beyond Strange…This book is overflowing with strange happenings and mind stretching concepts… Light Weaver soon develops into a real page turner!’‘A magical journey! Carol Anne Strange created a fascinating story about the possibilities of other dimensions, dual universes and timeless healing.’‘Strange sets the bar high from the outset with a surprising introduction that begs the question – how will this pan out? Nothing is certain – apart from the fact that you’re in for a riveting, sumptuous read. And when the story’s done, there are a few other surprises waiting for the reader who’s invested in the author’s marvellously constructed world, borne from reality and fiction.’‘…if you are a fan of Sarah Addison Allen’s whimsical stories, you may really like Light Weaver. I think Carol Anne Strange’s story is a bit more “out there” than her’s though.’View the Light Weaver Book Trailer …
