    One thought on “Wherever There Is Light”

    1. There were so many things I liked about this book AT FIRST. I liked the characters in spite of their flaws. I was enjoying the love story as melodramatic as it was . I've said it before and can't help but say it again here , that I so much enjoy these glimpses of New York City in the past. This one includes the clubs and Greenwich Village , Harlem in the late 1930's and 1940's and a good portion of the book takes place in NYC . The story line appealed to me - a Black girl and a Jewish man in lov [...]

    2. Wherever There Is Light has some of the ingredients for good historical fiction, but there was too much that I didn’t like for me to read it with much pleasure. Set in the 1930s through the 1960s, the story focuses primarily on the relationship between Julian – a young Jewish man of German descent – and Kendall – a young black woman from Florida. Julian is a real estate developer in New York with a mobster shady past, and Kendall is an aspiring artist with a university education. Julian [...]

    3. "What color is love"? "Where there is Light", by Peter Golden, illuminates brightness from many shades of color a couple in love. Julian is white. Kendall is African-American. There love begins in 1938, Florida. Hitler's war is happening in the world, and it's a time of Jim Crowism. Julian and Kendall's parents don't support their love. It was unlikely that their love could survive the times-- the prejudice, bigotry, discrimination, and the narrow-mindedness. The world conditions were separatin [...]

    4. A special thank you to Atria Books and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.Once again, Atria dominates. Ex·tra·or·di·naire! 5 Stars+ Following Comeback Love,Peter Golden returns with a captivating and epic love story— WHEREVER THERE IS LIGHT , making my Top Books of 2015crossing many genres (my perfect cup of tea), touching on all my favorites categories---- Best Book-to-Big Screen Adaptation.

    5. When I first read the synopsis of Wherever There Is Light, I thought 'greatother book about racism & World War IINOT my cup of tea.' But that is why I love being a member of the Pulpwood Queens book clubI read books that I would not have considered or possibly even heard of. And, often times, unexpectedly love the book as I did in this case. While reading this book, I could tell that author Peter Golden truly cared for the characters he created, especially Julian & Kendall. The first cha [...]

    6. Where There Is LightBy: Peter GoldenPublished By: Simon & SchusterCopy Courtesy of NetgalleyReviewed By: tkYou will meet a man by the name Julian. This will be the only simple thought you will have until you reach the last page and close the book. You are about to embark on a breath taking journey with Julian. It begins around the age of 12 and into his adulthood. A heart wrenching tale of triumph, loss, and acceptance that no ordinary man should have to endure. Peter Golden is an extremely [...]

    7. Thanks to Netgalley for an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.A German Jewish businessman and an African-American woman find love in the late 1930s. But because of racism and discrimination, the two find themselves fighting to be together.The plot had a lot of potential, but The execution didn't fare as well. It wasn't that interesting because the characters seemed the same under their various ethnic backgrounds. The couple seemed to fall in love instantaneously, which I know [...]

    8. Great book. I really enjoyed it.The characters are richly portrayed and the story is captivating. It covers a lot of ground, both literally and figuratively. Just on geography they move around: Florida, New Jersey, Greenwich Village, Harlem, Paris, and Germany. With ideas it gets into art, music, business, philosophy, war, the Holocaust, race relations, family, love and more.One warning - there are graphic sex scenes. The author may have gone too far in a couple of spots but I'm not complaining. [...]

    10. I really enjoyed this book and the characters. I can't imagine what it would of been like as a black woman in the 1930's/40's and wanting to be more than just a "slave" or being owned by someone. Kendell wanted to make a name for herself as a person. Photography became her passion. She was amazing at telling the story of a person or situation through her craft. She falls in love with Julian, a white, Jewish man. Sadly, she can't allow the love that she has for him to complicate or throw her life [...]

    11. The author writes in a way where you feel like you are hearing a story that was written by someone who witnessed what he is writing about first hand. I had to double check to make sure this was fictional. I will read anything this author writes with hopes of a story with the same effect.This was I great book. In the beginning it was a little difficult to figure out what was going on. It starts with a woman bringing a boy to man. The lady tells him that the boys mother died and that the mother in [...]

    12. An entertaining read, but one that never seems to fulfill its promise.The book is a love story between Julian, a Jewish immigrant ex-bootlegger turned real estate developer and Kendall, the independent-minded African American granddaughter of a former slave and founder of an all black college in South Florida. Starting in the late 30's, and spanning three decades, through WWII, the beginning of the Cold War and the struggle for Civil Rights, the potential for sweeping historical fiction never ha [...]

    13. Thanks Atria Books and netgalley for this arc.This is a time stopping, life-changing, perspective expanding book!It has everything I love about historical fiction. Love, art, life, and sexy heroes and heroines.I didn't know the history of what was happening in the States at the same time as WWII in Europe, but I feel like I have a changed outlook at the world now. I love how Peter Golden presented us with a brand new look of history in this love story!

    14. A beautifully written book with amazing descriptions that pull you right into Paris and more where you mingle with real life characters out of history. A sexy, honest love story - a tale of two very different people who despite class and racial differences come together to not only find love during difficult times but realize they share surprising family issues. All tied together perfectly for a most satisfying and surprising ending. A must read!

    15. This is one of those books I just couldn't seem to get into and unfortunately I abandoned it halfway through. I gave it three stars to give it the benefit of the doubt and because I won it in a Giveaway. I admired the history, very well researched, but the story and writing style couldn't hold my interest long enough for me to finish it.

    16. Interesting story of two star crossed lovers- one Southern and Black the other a Jew from the Northeast. Their problems are many- race, and gender roles, family history and parental expectations. The characters are interesting and layered.

    17. This book is probably more like a 3.5. I liked it, but after just finishing The Lost Wife, which I loved, it was unfortunately what I was comparing it too. Nevertheless it was a beautiful story of a love that survived unimaginable times that never faltered over the decades.

    18. I gave myself 100 pages and then I stopped. there were too many themes: gangsters, race, love, religion, art, war, Paris, NYC, FL, education, sex, history, etc. Some of the characters are too extreme to be credible. Supposedly historical fiction.

    19. I'm not really one for romance novels, but I read this one because my mom recommended/lent it to me. We had both loved "All the Light We Cannot See" and I think she was picking up on some parallels to the setting/era, title, and cover art but that's where the similarities between these books end. "Wherever" got more absorbing the more I read, but there were a few too many familiar cliches for me: bootleggers turned gangsters, a wannabe artist trying to "make it" in NYC (and accomplishing it way [...]

    20. Enlightening in its historical facts and entertaining in its epic love story, Wherever There is Light is memorable and impressive.Peter Golden has written an engaging account of forbidden romance between interracial lovers whose struggles are more than racial prejudices in pre- and post-WWII. The love affair between Julian and Kendall is captivating and heartbreaking as they experience growing pains and become their love’s worst enemy.Julian, a Jewish man who was put on a boat to emigrate from [...]

    21. Well, this book was definitely a meaty, thought-provoking read. Dealing with heavy subjects like race, prejudice, and war, there were several times where I had to just stop and digest the material, reflecting on its relevance to today’s world as well as on the times it portrays.I liked that the author wasn’t afraid to delve into these heavier topics. Interracial relationships and the history that go along with them are as relevant today as they were then. The judgment that society piles on s [...]

    22. It has taken me a few weeks to write this review because I was not entirely sure what to say. I wanted to like this book. And there were some pieces of it that I enjoyed. But for me, it wasn’t one of the great books that I will read this year (or even have read in recent memory). But other people have loved it – this is solely my opinion!Wherever There is Light has glimpses of greatness – following the characters through their personal development and growth all set within a backdrop of Ne [...]

    23. This book had all the right raw ingredients to write a terrific story, but for me, it fell very short. Unfortunate as there were some deep topics to explore. Golden tried to make the novel too hip using popular phrases, sprinkling a historical event, place or person into many chapters, and unnecessarily provided way too much graphic and trashy (absolutely unnecessary) sexual detail between Kendall and Julian.Julian Rose is a German Jew living in America. He speaks multiple languages. His father, [...]

    24. Whenever an author is scheduled to come to do a library fundraiser set up by our Friends of the Punta Gorda Library, I feel that I should familiarize myself with their work in order to tell our patrons about it. I have done this for Stephen King, Lisa See, and Gregg Hurwitz. With Peter Golden coming in the Spring, I knew I had to get to work. Wherever There is Light by Peter Golden was released on November 3, 2015. It tells the intertwining stories of two families, the Roses: Theodor, Elana, and [...]

    25. Boring, shallow, hollow characters. Not enough fleshing out of the characters who have substance. Too much fleshing out of others - pardon the pun. But I could have done without 90 % of the sex scenes. They are just awkward. Sometimes, I thought, oh that's just a male fantasy - a black woman of the 1930's wouldn't have thought like that. I really tried to like this book and hung in longer than usual for a boring book. The cover and title made me think it would be a beautiful layered love story. [...]

    26. This year, I'm hoping to try reading more books that I just discover in the moment and this is one of those books. I found this on display along with other new fiction at my local library, and I was drawn to the cover. I didn't really read the label copy except to see WWII mentioned, so I went into this book blindly. I really enjoyed it.From a segregated and tense South in Florida and an all-black university to NYC and New Jersey just after prohibition to Paris right after WWII, we get a differe [...]

    27. A lovely tale of romance. I really enjoyed the story line and the historical elements. Post-war Paris was an excellent choice for the central part of the novel: close to things we've all read about but with enough unique detail that it didn't feel derivative. Julian, the main character, is real enough to relate to, but not your stereotypical hero. There are aspects of his character that are hard to love, and so the fact that Kendall doesn't fall into his arms upon meeting him, the complicated na [...]
