The Clear Light of Day — the last part of the story

This instalment brings us to the end of our story.
If you have enjoyed it and you would like to have a copy to read on your own at home, it's "The Clear Light of Day", by Penelope Wilcock, published by David C Cook, and available as a Kindle title from Amazon.
There is much controversy these days about making the work of writers available online like this, so people can enjoy the story without having to pay for it. What will make publishers open to the idea, I think, is simply if they see it boosts their sales — if a proportion of people who enjoy the story buy the book. And that will mean those who simply don't have the money to spend will still get a chance to hear the stories as publishers relax enough to let writers read them to you, even if the publishers own the rights.

I wanted them to see that if you believe in life enough to give something away, you gain more than you lose, in the end.

God bless and prosper you.

This has been exquisite Pen, thank you. I am so grateful for the time and energy you have used to read to us, and that your publisher allowed the posts to stay...your gentle reading depicts the characters as you intended them to be which has been wonderful. Thank you.

P.S I really like Jabez too!

Thank you so much, Deb.

David C Cook haven't yet given me permission; I have asked, but had no response except that they'd look in to it.

I'm so glad you liked the story. xx

I will very much miss our time together... they're like a precious pastoral visit. Thank you 😊 I have had the Kindle version for years. It's so different listening to you read ... Love the different voices and expressions.

Bless you for taking the time, sweet Ember. 🥰

"But Jabez, with his humble trust in the power of simplicity gave her a onscure sense of safety." That is the distillation of the book for me. This has been balm to the soul Pen and I thank you along with the others for taking time in your day to read to us. Such a gift. I have purchased it on Kindle so I can re read it. xx

I am so glad you enjoyed the story, and thank you so much for buying the book. I think when you read it, you will blend your own toes and emphases with mine remembered, and make a richly textured reading experience. x
