Lighting Candles in the Snow by Karen Jones Gowen
Newly divorced Karoline London needs to heal and find her normal again, as older sister Suzie keeps reminding her. But what does Suzie know about divorce? She has the perfect husband and seven gorgeous children, while Karoline had six years married to a man tormented by addictions.
When Karoline meets handsome Zac Kline, things just might be looking up. Until she learns about a tragic event in ex-husband Jeremy’s childhood that explains old complications, while creating new ones–complications that threaten to further obstruct Karoline’s difficult path back to herself. (Caution: Due to the serious themes in Lighting Candles in the Snow it, unlike Gowen's other work, contains some profanity as well as scenes that may be too graphic for some readers.)
