In the Light of What We See by Sarah Painter


I couldn’t put this book down. I fell in love with the story, characters and everything about this amazing book. This was one of those stories that you can’t stop reading but so sad when you come to the end, you wish it could go on forever. In The Light of What We See is so touching and really just worms it’s way in and stays with you long after you finish it. I love the 2 women it explores and really lets you see all the relationships, and their connection to each other. I would recommend adding this to your summer reading list I don’t think you will be disappointed. I plan to read more of Sarah Painters books, she is new to me and I’m so glad I found her.


summary: 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.
