Fading Starlight - Kathryn Cushman

"Fading Starlight" by Kathryn Cushman is beautifully written.  As a reader, you should know that this is not a typical Bethany House book.  Usually, Bethany House publishes women's historical romance fiction.  They do not often venture far from this genre.  Kathryn Cushman's "Fading Starlight" focuses more on the life and struggles of the main character than on her interactions with a protagonist, such as a suitor.  There is one character that fits this bill, but the focus of the book is not on the relationship.  This is perfectly fine - not all books need to be about relationships.  I do think it is important, however, to note so that when purchasing the book the reader's expectations are in sync with what the author is offering.
Furthermore, the plot has more of an even keel as opposed to several highs and lows.  It is not a roller coaster ride.  It is slow, easy going, and takes a relaxed approach.  The book is calming, and at no point was I panicked for the main character.
My personal preference does lean more toward volatile plots with strong romantic aspects, so this book wasn't for me.  That doesn't mean that it isn't for many, many other people.  The writer is talented, and her skill at the craft shines through.
The publisher provided this complimentary copy in exchange for an unbiased review.
