Letting in the Light (The Spindrift Trilogy)
About this deal
The old clock or jukebox, works again, and plays a familiar tune, transporting the owner to a place at a particular time in their life.
That would be an accurate description of Letting In Light for me when I borrowed it through Prime Reading. The story starts with a car accident that Will comes upon, and being a first-aider he helps the girl involved.Maybe it was something from their deceased parents or grandparents’ home, which had a resonance, or was part of their family history.

Good book, I'll probably read another by this author in the future but I will probably shy away from it if it is over 500 pages again.Wartime and the atrocities that splintered, destroyed so many families, features heavily throughout this third book.
She has won first prize in five short story competitions and wrote a regular column on interior design for The Maidenhead Advertiser for two years. What a charming story, it starts off with a great prologue that introduces you to both Ellie and Will in unusual circumstances, and then the story starts properly a year later, and by that stage I was already hooked and eager to know more about everyone. Without that dislike there for her, the other factors may not add up to a "well, forget this book" feeling on that end. Of course they would be; but any grown adult character I can like (who hasn't had far worse happen to them than what she'd experienced) has already moved on a lot more than this woman had, rather than still being flummoxed enough for it to serious affect aspects of their life. I want to spend New Year's Eve flying paper planes from the hilltop, walk through the woods, be part of the wonderful community at Rowan Hill - in fact, having read the book, I really do feel I have been part of it all.As for me, I try to remember that every hitter in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame was successful at the plate no more than between three and four times out of ten. However, an explosive encounter between Benedict and Pascal could end up putting paid to all of Edith’s hopes and dreams as dangerous secrets come to light that could end up jeopardising their beloved Cornish community.
The Spindriff Saga was a travel through times and the I was glad to meet again the characters and read about their life in another time. This book opens in 1914, just before the Second World War, which has a huge impact on the community that Edith has built on the beautiful Cornish coast. Letting in the Light features the illuminated work of 35 artists, all of whom have experience of mental health issues.But what do we do with a treasured piece of pottery, such as a vase or tea pot, that has shattered into many pieces?
