"In rural Kentucky, back in 1933, Carol's daddy lost his 13-year-old daughter in a game of cards. Award-winning author Simon Van Booy's spellbinding novel spans decades as he tells the story of Carol and the people in her life. Incidents intersect and lives unexpectedly change course in this masterfully interwoven story of chance and choice that leads home again to a night blessed with light. "What you give in this world," an old man tells his grandson, "will be given back to you." Those words illuminate the actions within this unforgettable novel and its connected characters. A young man survives two nearly fatal accidents. A Black family saves an orphaned white boy. A pregnant teenager is rescued by the side of the road. An autistic teenager is given his first job. Each incident grows in meaning and power over many decades as we see connections sometimes felt but not always apparent to the people themselves. "Everything was moving," observes Samuel (Carol's grandson) in the Kentucky woods. "An invisible force that was everywhere, and made everything touch." Told by a master storyteller, Night Came with Many Stars is a rare novel that reveals how wondrous, mysterious, and magically connected life can be-the light Van Booy creates in this novel illuminates our own lives."--… (més)

Beautiful, tender family saga of several decades, covering several generations of a family from before the second world war until the 2000's. The novel also tells of their friends and others who play a big part in their lives and shaping who they are. Exquisitely written, focusing mostly on Carol, sold as a teenager to a man her father lost to in a card game, and her grandson, Samuel, who struggles to find himself. Carol runs away and that begins her story. They inhabit alternating chapters, interspersed with the lives of those who influence them in some way. Heartwarming but sometimes heart wrenching. ( )

Just some fine story-telling, about humans making the best of what life hands out. Beginning with a young girl whose good-for-nothing father loses her in a card game in 1933, thereby doing her what turns out to be an enormous favor, we proceed through generations of her offspring and their contacts to a fitting 21st century ending. Nothing is predictable, but everything feels inevitable. Set in Kentucky, it's reminiscent of Silas House's fiction. ( )

Ever'body gits crossroads in their lives. It's where a person has the chance to choose another way.
What you give in this world will be given back to you. And what you take will be taken from you.
But you're right: all love leads to pain of one kind or another.
It still amazes me that so much pain can lead to so much love.
They were not children anymore but Samuel could see clearly, behind the unwashed clothes and clumsy tattoos, that Eddie was still just a boy living in exile from his own life, always on the verge of being loved.
