Where the Light Enters
Where the Light Enters | Sara Donati
15 posts | 6 read | 24 to read
From the international bestselling author of The Gilded Hour comes Sara Donati's enthralling epic about two trailblazing female doctors in nineteenth-century New York Obstetrician Dr. Sophie Savard returns home to the achingly familiar rhythms of Manhattan in the early spring of 1884 to rebuild her life after the death of her husband. With the help of Dr. Anna Savard, her dearest friend, cousin, and fellow physician she plans to continue her work aiding the disadvantaged women society would rather forget. As Sophie sets out to construct a new life for herself, Anna's husband, Detective-Sergeant Jack Mezzanotte calls on them both to consult on two new cases: the wife of a prominent banker has disappeared into thin air, and the corpse of a young woman is found with baffling wounds that suggest a killer is on the loose. In New York it seems that the advancement of women has brought out the worst in some men. Unable to ignore the plight of New York's less fortunate, these intrepid cousins draw on all resources to protect their patients.

It is better late than never☺️1.There are a couple, like Dostoyevsky, Poe, A. Christie & others, 2.I just want to know about their passion to write, how their ideas came. I think that artists in general are so intense in their emotions in their feelings and so unique in how they express that in their work. 3. 🤔Like 500? Near to 800? Maybe😲 thank you @Chrissyreadit & @JenlovesJT47 for tagging me & because now I don't feel alone in question 3😘❤️

First, there will definitely be another book after this one!
Second, I enjoyed this book, but since it's been quite some time since her previous, it took me a while to remember things.
The plot continues to revolve around the search for someone who has killed women by deliberately botching abortion.
I recommend you read her books in order to get a better understanding of these beautiful families

4 ⭐️- History, mystery and one heck of a follow up to 2015‘s The Gilded Hour. If you love HistFic with strong female characters and vivid descriptions, you‘ll want to read this series. Start with The Gilded Hour.

This series features characters and relatives from Donati‘s wonderful Into the Wilderness series (which is one of y all-time fav series).

Enjoyed this sequel to The Gilded Hour which picks up about 4 months later. There‘s tragedy, grief, new beginnings and some convoluted and disturbing murders to be solved. Even though it‘s a bit too long (IMO), like its predecessor, it‘s the love, acceptance and openness of this family and their friends that really shine here (and great researching too). And I‘m happy to hear there‘s more to come. 4.5/5⭐️ Out 9/10

robinb @Crazeedi @Chrissyreadit So glad I found this series! 😊 And the length of these books didn‘t bother me as much as it could have because they were so well-written and engaging. 3mo

robinb @Chrissyreadit I have not. This was my first exposure to this author. I discovered though in looking at her previous work that this series goes way back historically. Very interesting! 3mo
Chrissyreadit @robinb they are favorites of mine I hope you try them out! 3mo
robinb @Chrissyreadit Is that one the very beginning of the series? 3mo
Chrissyreadit @robinb yes- the first one. It remains a favorite of mine. 3mo

Coming 9/10
