Approaching the Speed of Light

A Novel


A heartbreaking tale of pain, love, and redemption set inNew York City

Approaching the Speed of Light is a story of tragedyand triumph, fragility and strength. Victoria Lustbader’s brave narrativeshines a powerful light on the lasting damage caused by childhood demons thatcan prevent a life from blossoming, on the relationships needed in order toovercome them, and on one man’s attempt to solve the elusive puzzle of truehappiness.

Until he was nine years old, when he was adopted into aloving family, Jody was a little boy whose only experience of love was apainful, twisted hell. Now, two decades later, he moves from one woman toanother, pointedly avoiding love—the thing he wants most but has never knownhow to give or take. Jody trusts only his wise and faithful dog Einstein totruly understand him and the darkness that haunts his life even in the brightlight of a summer’s day.

A chance meeting with Tess, an elderly woman stillmourning her long-dead son, sends Jody on a journey back to the torturedmemories buried deep below his scars. Tess brings Jody together with EllaLandreth and her shy young son, Evan. These people grow to need one another farmore than any of them could have ever imagined.
