Jill Santopolo’s “The Light We Lost” is an easy-to-get-lost-in read, meant to pull at your heartstrings and have you comparing it to “Me Before You.”
The book’s protagonist and sole narrator, Lucy Carter, begins the story as a college student in New York City and finishes the tale a married mother of three, with a successful career as a television producer. In the end, I think we are supposed to weep for her. A little? A Lot? Depends on the reader and your take on romantic relationships of all kinds — in this case, those that lead to a life together.
