Publisher's 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.

Something lacking

A disappointment. The 2 different time-lines in the plot just never fit together, and there was no flow to the story. Honestly, the current-day characters were boring and unlikable. I would have preferred more about Grace, circa 1938, and less about Mina, present-day. There are so many better duel narratives out there ( I highly recommend "A Memory of Violets" ); pass on this one.

A Good Start

The story held such promise and in fact I had hoped for more. I loved the interactions between Grace, the ghost and Nina and wish there had been more. It seemed a long time to tell the story. While I am glad that I listened to the story I somehow long for there to have been more.
