Clare, Horatio - The Light in the Dark


Title: The Light in the Dark (A Winter Journal)
Author: Horatio Clare
Genre: Non-Fiction / Memoir / Diary    Pages: 200
First published: 2018

This is one of those books that I saw people talking about that I immediately wanted to read. I already knew I was going to love it and I did.

The author talks us through the autumn/winter season from October to March and tells the reader about the world around and within him as the seasons change into that bleakness called winter. As someone with moderate S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder), I could relate to much of what he touched on.

I found the journal style writing to be easy and enjoyable with beautiful descriptions without going over the top. I found this book itself was like a warm cozy blanket eventhough it touches on depression. It does so in a very human way and I loved it for that.

I will definitely seek out more books by this author and would highly recommend this Winter Journal as we go into those shortest darkest days.

6 out of 7 stars
