Book Review: In the light of what we see – Sarah Painter

28012440The blurb

Brighton, 1938: Grace Kemp is pushed away by the family she has shamed. Rejected and afraid, she begins a new life as a nurse. But danger stalks the hospital too, and she’ll need to be on her guard to avoid falling into familiar traps. And then there are the things she sees…Strange portents that have a way of becoming real.

Eighty years later, Mina Morgan is brought to the same hospital after a near-fatal car crash. She is in terrible pain but recalls nothing. She’s not even sure whom to trust. Mina too sees things that others cannot, but now, in hospital, her visions are clearer than ever…

Two women, separated by decades, are drawn together by a shared space and a common need to salvage their lives.

My Rating: 4 stars

I know you should never judge a book by the cover, however, this cover is beautiful and totally swayed me when I was hunting for a book to request of NetGallery!

This is the story of two women who at first appear very different both set in the Royal Sussex Hospital in Brighton

Grace – its 1938 and Grace has been sent away from home after a traumatic event to be a Student Nurse only things do not go as well as she hoped

Mina – Its the present day and Mina, who is a radiographer at the hospital gets injured in a car crash and has temporary memory loss.

Initially it appears the two women are very different but as the stories progress they both have similarities and become almost connected.

I loved this book, I like the alternate chapter arrangement of the two characters, I was quickly hooked and ended up reading the last half of the book in one sitting as I was eager to find out what happened!
