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.

Well written but just OK

An OK story, told from 2 different perspectives, belonging to 2 different time periods. I enjoyed both stories on their own - one more than the other - but didn't see a lot of point in their juxtaposition in this book. Grace's story, set in the '30s, felt more interesting to me. Whereas Mina got on my nerves with her "I was such a horrible person before I lost my memory" act. Ugh! What a cliché. I saw all of the twists coming a mile off but, to its credit, the book was very well written.
I don't think it'll stay with me for too long but I'm glad I listened to it. The narration is very good. No complaints whatsoever on that score.

this was not very good

i have other sarah painter books which i really like.
having read the reviews i had high expectations.
I don't want to spoil this by giving spoilers but I have to give reasons why i was disappointed.
It's not a thriller it is bland, dull, and a bit boring.
It's not really a supernatural or a crime I don't have anything to compare it to
it is a 2 person storyline whose lives cross on occasion and that is it.
Once you start reading or listening then after a chapter or 2 if you dont guess what this is about I'll be very suprised.
Going to try and return it as it's so dull.
