This anthology is a mix of short fiction, longer fiction, poetry, and a couple of non-fiction pieces, all around the theme of light. Several are fantasy stories, and each of the authors to an excellent job of condensing a lot of world building and plot into a small space.
I’m normally a fiction reader I do have to say I liked the two non-fiction pieces best, especially the final piece from Jo-Anne Berthelsen. I also surprised myself by liking one of the short poems! It’s a varied and enjoyable selection, and I’m sure everyone will find something to like.

Great book for short bursts of inspirationReviewed in the United States on 31 March 2016
What a delightful book of short stories and poems! I bought the book because of my acquaintance with one of the authors, Jeanette O'Hagan, but I was pleasantly surprised by the content. Many stories kept me glued to the page. Fantasy and unusual touches highlighted many of the tales. The first story came from the viewpoint of a horse. O'Hagan wrote a story of a young girl, going through the loss of her father and the betrayal of all she knew, who then lets herself fall into the arms of God (seagulls) and learns to trust. A sweet poem about God's woolen blanket, a prayer, a mystical kingdom. "Glimpses of Light" includes it all. Great book that you can pick up and read a short piece for inspiration.

Beautiful read!Reviewed in the United States on 21 February 2016
This is a beautiful book of reflections about life. Each story really makes you think and is thoroughly entertaining. It really is a blessing to read.
