Night Came with Many Stars

Night Came with Many Stars

I read this novel in a headlong rush, unable to break free of its spell. Beautiful as an old bruise, plain-spoken as a prayer, Night Came with Many Stars rings hard and true with the poetry of real life. Van Booy knows that love and heartache go hand-in-hand and that cold hard reality is no match for the dreams and longings each of us carry inside.
