"Light of the New Day”
“Light of a New Day” presents its readers with the old, but not worn, scenes of the
harvest—the planting, the nourishing, the gathering in. We come to know and
understand the characters—and there are only two of them—well indeed. Darin
Cozzens uses particularly strong visual images; prayer-worn linoleum and baled
snakes and fresh fudge are but a few that enrich the narrative detail. The story
ends with hope, not knowledge, but a faith that all will be well.
