"IN A LIFE FULL OF LIES, HE FINALLY SETTLED FOR THE TRUTH."No one in Mattingly ever believed Bobby Barnes would live to see old age. Drink would either rot Bobby from the inside out or dull his senses just enough to send his truck off the mountain on one of his nightly rides. Although Bobby believes such an end possible--and even likely--it doesn't stop him from taking his twin sons Matthew and Mark into the mountains one Saturday night. A sharp curve, blinding headlights, metal on metal, his sons' screams. Bobby's final thought as he sinks into blackness is a curious one--There will be stars.Yet it is not death that greets him beyond the veil. Instead, he returns to the day he has just lived and finds he is not alone in this strange new world. Six others are trapped with him.Bobby soon discovers that this supposed place of peace is actually a place of secrets and hidden dangers. Along with three others, he seeks to escape, even as the world around him begins to crumble. The escape will lead some to greater life, others to endless death . . . and Bobby Barnes to understand the deepest nature of love.
With THERE WILL BE STARS, Billy Coffey draws us back to the town and people of Mattingly, the small Southern place his readers know well. There is beauty here, but also startling cruelties and casual evil.... Coffey's new world is not for the timid, but it is indeed wondrous. Gather up your courage and jump into Bobby Barnes' new life and “heaven.” Just keep the lights on while you read!
