    First off, I won this as a goodreads giveaway Thank you Berkley and Penguin Random House.This book was jam packed with plot twits, and I rather enjoyed that It turned out to be a very complex story.The story takes place in New York City when the Dakota building was being built and when Comstock was still in power It is also a family story that shows who will always be there for you in your time of need I m not going in depth with the plot and characters in this review , for this is a book that needs to be read and shared Once you start it, you won t want to stop until it s done.

    Some sequels try too hard to squeeze in a synopsis of previous books or to fill the timeline gap with internal monologues from various characters Where the Light Enters is not one of those We come back to Anna, Sophie and their extended families with an exchange of letters and news articles Donati draws you in from the start with this simple and elegant opening Where the Light Enters answers, in heartbreaking ways, some of the burning questions that The Gilded Hour left us with, while leaving mysteries of its own behind Ones that I look forward to returning to in future books As with The Gilded Hour and previous books in the Wilderness Series, Donati draws the past and present together Issues that we faced as individuals and as a country a century and ago are still relevant today Beautifully researched and rich with historical detail, Where the Light Enters will make you feel as if you ve stepped onto the sidewalks in 1884 to walk alongside strong, intelligent female physicians and students and cunning New York Detectives Advanced reading copy from publisher.

    There are 661 pages in this book and almost as many characters just kidding DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED This book is that good.A wonderful historical fiction that centers on two cousins that are women and doctors And yes, the year is 1884 I had no idea that there were female doctors in that year Since I started this book, I found out that the first female doctor, Elizabeth Blackwell, started practicing in 1841 This book has so many story lines to commend it The most important is the death of women when the abortion of their child turns into their own murder It is intimated that the doctor performing the procedure is morally incensed by their request for abortion and kills them by a slow and painful death The cousins are involved in the investigation of these murders Could not put the book down 5 stars

    An epic of a historical fiction Two trail blazing female doctors in the 1880s I found myself Googling parts throughout the read always a good sign set in NYC when The Dakota was just being built This meticulously research story focuses on an obstetrician and general sergeant, and the many obstacles they must overcome, especially Sophia who s half African American Plus so much Both doctors are called to help consult on a police case where a women has been found tortured Opening up to a larger case a serial killer who is brutally killing pregnant women, who ve forgotten their purpose in society Reminiscent of The Alienist Galley borrowed from the publisher.

    I have previously read The Gilded Hour by this same author I was so surprised to learn that I won ARC from Goodreads through Penguin Random House I enjoyed The Gilded Hour and I couldn t wait to read the continuing story I was not disappointed Where the Light Enters is an epic historical novel This book is set in NYC in the 1880 s when the Dakota building was being built, along with many medical mysteries and police investigations We meet again Dr Anna Savard and her cousin Sophie who is also a doctor Anna is married to Jack Mezzanotte who is a detective sergeant with the New York City police Dept Sophie has recently become a widow and has returned to New York from Europe The story continues with Anna and Jack and Rosa and Lia and baby Tonino We learn about the mystery at the end of The Gilded Hour Although this book is the second book in the sequel it can be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading the first book in the saga.This book was very well written with historical details, including details from newspaper articles and letters from members of the family I loved how the female doctors helped the NYC police Dept solve some of their medical mysteries and murders This is an enjoyable read for all

    This is the longest book I think I have ever read Good plot but mixed feelings 3.5 stars I have to start this off with a warning of sorts This is a massive book Easily 3 to 4 times the size of a normal fiction story.With that said, the author did an amazing job developing infinite and minute detail in every piece of the story In my opinion, this book is actually two books in one Let me explain.First of all, it would be helpful to read the first book in the series, The Gilded Hour, which I did not do There are multiple details the author assumes you know that are coming in from the other book.Secondly, the list of characters is quite large and it does take a bit to keep track of everyone Even the housekeepers and other attendants have ample say in this story.Now back to why this is two books in one On one hand you have the murder mystery and all of that which surrounds the detail.Then in the next chapter you re learning about the women and their medical stories and their daily work The murder mystery pieces are forgotten for many, many, many chapters We get intricate conversation about daily happenings, the hopes and dreams of one character, even hiring people are detailed conversations There s also a side story of orphaned children tied into this whole humongous family unit.I m not saying this is a bad thing But I was looking for a story about the murder mystery which to me was intensely interesting The time, the history, the fact that the female doctors including a black female and midwives were involved greatly interested me.But it seemed that portion was diminished amongst everything else surrounding it until the very end when it became key The second part of the story and all of the supreme detail about the family unit was not what I was expecting But some details did cross over into the murder mystery.Overall, the story is beautifully laid out, very interesting to read, and perfect for someone that loves family sagas, with a twist of love, murder, and history Just be prepared to dedicate quite a while to read this book.I have to admit it was difficult for me but looking back, it was a pleasurable read with some nice twists that keep you engaged, especially the last half copy received fore review considerationFull Review

    I was a giveaway winner for this book from Penguin Random House Berkley Marketing and was so pleased to receive an advance copy Having read all of Sara Donati s books, I dived right in Being familiar with her characters from Into the Wilderness series and The Gilded Hour, I picked right up with these amazing people This can be a stand alone book for those not familiar with her works, so no worries It brings to life New York in the 1880s, with all its grit and back alley seediness What I loved about this book are the strong female characters, both doctors, which was quite unusual for the time Donati does extensive research and it shows Dr Sophie Savard and her cousin, Dr Anna Savard Mezzanotte are brilliantly written and I immediately wanted to know about their lives These two remarkable women will stay with you long after the last page Full of adventure, intrigue, intellect and every day quiet moments, it is a beautiful and powerful read.

    If you have not read Donati before, at least read The Gilded Hour before you read this one, as this is a sequel In fact, you re better off reading Into the Wilderness and the rest of the earlier series, because even having done that, I kept getting family relationships muddled Donati has some family trees on her website, but the publisher really should have considered including one in this book so that I could remember who is related to whom and how This is a big,rich novel, and I took my time reading it putting it down for a bit, then picking it up again to make it last I enjoy seeing Donati bring an earlier New York to life Some story lines are tied up here or so it seems , but she s clearly left a lot to come The epilogue is a little disquieting, it sort of ends the book on a downer, but I suspect that there s one of the seeds for the next book in it, and I will look forward to that book when it arrives And at some point between then and now, I will probably re read the earlier series.
