    Historical Mystery Fiction

    Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati is an epic historical mystery and worth reading every captivating chapter. Her book includes daily life, medical practice and police procedure in the late 19th century. The reader is transported to the era of the 1880‘s with to die for historical details. She describes and examines the effects prejudice on many because of their religion, sex, race or anything out of what is considered normal. This is a complex historical mystery of unbelievable scope and unpredictable conclusions. Donati’s writings are of the caliber that so few authors achieve. I asked myself why I bothered with some of the books I have read. My answer is I‘m waiting for the next author or book of distinction and this is one. I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. I appreciate the opportunity and thank the author and publisher for allowing me to read, enjoy and review this book.

    Wonderful Historical Fiction

    This is a great read, as I have come to expect from Sara Donati. Donati’s writing has all the elements that make great historical fiction: meticulous research, attention to detail, descriptions which make the time and place come alive, and historical events contemporary to the story. In addition, she develops characters in depth. Her many characters demonstrate both good and evil qualities amid the drama of their lives. We see them cope with situations which seem too difficult, and yet they rise to the occasion. Donati’s plots are wonderful: well paced, interesting, and full of the unexpected. I also enjoyed the mystery which is not solved until the final chapters. Where the Light Enters is the sequel to The Gilded Hour and I was so happy to learn more about the lives of the people in that book. However, I think you could read Where the Light Enters by itself and not be confused. (But you will immediately want to read The Gilded Hour if you have not already done so!) I enjoyed the addition of Pip to this new book, and liked watching the growing maturity of Rosa, Lia and Elise. An entertaining and thought-provoking book, worth every minute it took to read 700 pages!
