About First Light:
From New York Times bestselling author, beloved entrepreneur, and reality television star Bill Rancic comes a moving tale of love, family, and survival against all odds set amid the deep, wild woods of the Yukon Territory. Inspired by his own love story with wife and television personality Giuliana Rancic, FIRST LIGHT (G. P. Putnam’s Sons; Publication Date: November 1, 2016) recounts the story of a young couple as told to their 10-year-old son during a family road trip. Ten years earlier, Daniel and Kerry are leaving a work trip in Alaska to plan their wedding back home in Chicago when their plane is sent careening into a mountainside in the middle of the Yukon during a terrible snowstorm, seriously injuring Kerry in the accident. It soon becomes clear that search-and-rescue teams aren’t going to find the survivors in time to save her. Daniel, the one passenger with survival experience, determines to find help and bring it back to the rest of the passengers, hoping against hope he might save the woman he loves. But Daniel’s choices are made all the more difficult by the presence of his boss, a stubborn man more interested in results than taking care of people, as he leaves Kerry in the care of their co-worker, Phil. Only one man will come out of their trek alive, but it still may not be in time to save Kerry and the other critically injured survivors at the crash site. As the parents’ story draws to a close, the truth about their son’s life will at last be revealed.
“FIRST LIGHT pulls from my own life experiences to tell a fictional story of love, survival and hope,” says Rancic. “My desire is that people finish this book feeling empowered to tackle life’s countless challenges and obstacles. I believe through determination and faith anything can be achieved no matter how insurmountable the odds may appear. It was an incredible, cathartic experience writing my first novel, and I hope everyone finds the same inspiration and thrill while reading it that I had while putting it together.”
