After the sudden implosion of her possibly-too-close family, Farley James gives up her dreams to care for her young brother, William, an Autistic Savant. They move into their odd aunt’s decrepit boarding house overlooking the city of Pittsburgh. Over time, the residents of Bridge Manor form a patchwork family, pulling together when tragedy threatens from several directions. By turns hilarious, heartbreaking, and dark, It Burns a Lovely Light will have you reading late into the night.
