Gabrielle Larson is an average, 15-year-old girl living in Chicago when tragedy strikes. In the aftermath, she is forced to relocate to rural North Dakota and spend the next chapter of her life learning to cope with trials involving everything from family to faith.

Past Darkness is not preachy or heavy-handed, but rather a touching story about the importance of family, the power of music, and the ever-present mercy of God.
