There Will Be Stars
By Billy Coffey
“IN A LIFE FULL OF LIES, HE FINALLY SETTLED FOR THE TRUTH.”
No one in Mattingly ever believed Bobby Barnes would live to see old age. Drink would either rot Bobby from the inside out or dull his senses just enough to send his truck off the mountain on one of his nightly rides. Although Bobby believes such an end possible—and even likely—it doesn’t stop him from taking his twin sons Matthew and Mark into the mountains one Saturday night. A sharp curve, blinding headlights, metal on metal, his sons’ screams. Bobby’s final thought as he sinks into blackness is a curious one—There will be stars.
Yet it is not death that greets him beyond the veil. Instead, he returns to the day he has just lived and finds he is not alone in this strange new world. Six others are trapped with him.
Bobby soon discovers that this supposed place of peace is actually a place of secrets and hidden dangers. Along with three others, he seeks to escape, even as the world around him begins to crumble. The escape will lead some to greater life, others to endless death . . . and Bobby Barnes to understand the deepest nature of love.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Bobby Barnes seems to be what is known as the town drunk who takes his twin sons Matthew and Mark to the mountains one Saturday night. There was an accident that turned Bobby’s world around.
It took me a while to get into this book, I’m really not a fan of this type of book, but after reading for a while, it did get interesting. There are a number of characters that make up this story, and they develop well as the story unfolds. This story seems to be one that either you like it or you don’t, so I encourage you to pick up a copy of There Will Be Stars and see what you think. If you enjoy fantasy type books, I think this one would be for you.
