  • You know those books that pack an emotional punch The ones you can t put down and then after you re done with them you think about them for days That was Beyond the Night for me.Flowing between the present day scene of a woman floating on a sea of darkness at times almost drowning and her husband groaning for her to wake from her coma, and a series of flashbacks in the 1970s, the real treasure for me were the scenes between Paul and Maddie in their twenties.With graduation on the horizon, Maddie [...]


  • Again a random book from the library shelves and again I was grateful The cover is cheesy a bit embarrassed to be reading it on the plane but I really did like the story pg 265 She thought about the last year Ever since then she had been fighting Fightin ggoing blind Thinking people were feeling sorry for her Caring about what she was losing than what she still had Unable to believe that God was in the darkness, that his love was greater than the blindness So she grasped and clung, accused and [...]

  • I did not know what to expect while reading Beyond the Night I was walking through the Adult Fiction aisles in my library and caught sights of this book I picked it up randomly, and keeping up with my oath, did not read the back side Beyond the Night started out quite slow for me It took me three days to complete it, and these three days were not consecutive I got really into it towards the end though, when the characters finally warmed up to me Paul seemed like a total jerk but you gotta keep f [...]


  • This is the beautiful love story of Paul and Maddie Tilden things were great in their friendship until Maddie began losing her sight due to an inherited genetic condition As she copes with her impending blindness Paul realizes he feels than friendship for Maddie God has work to do in them both, however, before they can be joined as one Schalesky writes her story from two characters points of view The transitions between the two are nicely done and the story flows well It s a fast paced story wi [...]

  • All I can say is Wow is one left me feeling the way Nicholas Spark s books do with the mixed emotion this author created This novel is about a woman who has a genetically related blindness that she thought she escaped, but which hits her as an adult There is a battle with the Mom throughout the book, a mother who saw her son suffer from the same disease, and tries to be a part of the daughter s life and learning how to live life without sight Schalesky did an excellent job of showing those of u [...]


  • I really liked this book, even though it actually made me cry at the end It was very well written, and the story is very well thought out It had all the right just admit it moments typical of any romance , but so many other moments that just put it above and beyond any other romance I have read My only complaint is that it says that the story is woven with the music of the 70 s, and I can honestly count the number of musical references 70 s music that is they talk about the symphony a lot on one [...]


  • This is the first time I have read any of Marlo Schalesky s books I really enjoyed this one It is a love story that reminded me somewhat of Nicholas Sparks The Notebook Unlike Sparks this book took a hard look at faith in times when you are not getting the answers to your prayers that you really want I enjoyed the book and would like to read of her work.


  • I did not like this book It had too many scenes taking place in the past and at the present time You never knew what time sequence you were in It also talked about a young lady that had macular degeneration It reminded me so much of my mother and her struggle with limited sight Not a good memory.


  • What an amazing story of love and hope It kept me turning pages to find out what was going to happen Maddie is going blind and Paul wants to help her Together Maddie and Paul get through this Reading this book makes you believe in hope and faith And most of all love And do Paul and Maddie get together You ll have to read the book to find out.


  • I didn t care for the continual back and forth between present day Maddie in her hospital bed and the flashbacks to when she first started losing her sight The hospital storyline was way overdone and too repetitive I also picked up fairly early on what the surprise twist at the end was going to be.


  • One reviewer compared Schalesky to Nicholas Sparks, but I don t think this quite measures up to his work While it does have a nice and unforeseen revelation at its conclusion, this story is rather predictable It also clearly reflects fundamentalist Christian values which is fine as long as the reader is comfortable with that.


  • Yes you can use flashbacks effectively in a story As Paul waits beside his wife hospital bed, he remembers how she went blind The author does an amazing job of pulling the reader into the story Winner of a Christy for Contemporary RomanceEspecially good for anyone facing illness and wondering if friends and family will stick by them.


  • Got bored with it and didn t finish it It wasn t extremely captivating And because of that, the mystery just plopped Sorry, but it did There were a few aspects that I liked though hints the 3 star rating.


  • This is a good book about a women learning to cope with a different life then she had planned out And a man learning to accept that new life It has a twist ending, that I like, but the book drag in some places Great book about placing Christ in the decisions we make in our daily life.


  • I, too, enjoyed the twist at the end I felt the back and forth writing between past and present was a little over the top, though.



  • BEST love story i have read in quite a while Wonderful, engaging plot, well rounded characters to both love and hate, amazing yet simple wtiting style Loved every page A truly beautiful book.



  • A love story with an interesting twist at the end I actually did not like the book until the end and then looking back i decided that i did like it
