The Visitors by Rebecca Mascull
  

Lovereading view...

What a delightful book. Full of action, drama and emotion, it is a wonderful, inspiring read. Furthermore the writing is stunningly beautiful. It is about Adeliza who is both blind and deaf as a result of scarlet fever as a small child. She is befriended by a girl who had a sister who was also deaf and blind. They become inseparable. We follow their lives surprisingly into the Boer War which is not where you would expect this sort of book to go. It is short, immensely powerful and moving. Certainly my favourite book of the month. Stunning.

If you like Rebecca Mascull you might also like to read books by Sarah Winman, Gavin Extence and Maria Semple.

Synopsis

The Visitors by Rebecca Mascull

Reviews

A beautifully crafted mesh of conquering adversity/hist-fict/ghost story with a murder investigation slipped in for good measure. A satisfying novel that's worth every penny and, indeed, every melting moment spent in its company.--The Book Bag
