Until The Darkness Goes by Renée Ebert is the frank, moving account of Molly Morris, a determined 42-year-old Jewish woman who had left New York and abandoned the conventional values and outlook of her headstrong mother to carve a tougher but more significant life for herself teaching history to high school students in a Long Beach, California barrio.  Swept up by her strong physical attraction to Javier, a Mexican auto mechanic, and the warmth and closeness of his family, Molly makes it clear to her mother early in the story that the best laid upper middle class plans she once envisioned for her daughter have absolutely nothing to do with the dynamic and vibrant life Molly has chosen for herself.

Molly’s resolve and determination though are soon challenged when her three-month-old daughter, Stella, through Javier, dies tragically of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).  Novelist Ebert’s compassionate and, at times, brutal account follows Molly as her grief leads her to spiral down through drug addiction even as she takes in a foster child, Nugent, and finds a lover, Michael Dunn, a Sony attorney more “suitable” to her mother’s taste.

How Molly ultimately deals with her addiction and the choices that ultimately confront her will surprise all but the alert reader.  But one thing is for sure. Ebert’s handling of Molly is bold and void of sentimentality – qualities all too rare in the contemporary novel.
