Darkness Beyond the Light (A John Ross Boomer Lit Series Book 2)

By Michael Embry

Retirement wasn't supposed to be complicated for John Ross after a long career as a journalist. But when he and his wife Sally discover that their self-centered son Brody has been leading a double life, they must navigate uncharted territory during the Christmas season to lead him out of the darkness of drugs including heroin.

A surprise visit from Sally's caustic mother, Geraldine, complicates matters by sticking her nose into family matters while their dutiful daughter, Chloe, brings her own peculiar problems to a not-so-merry holiday reunion. Some quirky neighbors, a few health issues, and unexpected events add to a memorable time of the year for John and Sally hope to survive.
