LoveReading Expert Review of Eyes Like Mine

February 2018 Debut of the Month.

A wonderfully intense and dramatic thriller, one that highlights the background, exposes the concealed, yet is action-packed and constantly moving. Nora Watts gave up her child, 15 years later that child is missing, and as the circumstances begin to twist around her, Nora has to revisit her past. Set in British Columbia, in the back streets and under-belly of Vancouver, and the vast icy mountain interior, the surroundings are a dramatic crucial element to the story. Nora is a truly distinctive character, tenacious, difficult, solitary, and she tells her own story, permitting you access to her uppermost thoughts. Sheena Kamal allows explanations to wait, encouraging you to get a feel for Nora by her actions and not her past. At times descriptive detailing surprised me, before connecting deeply within, at others I felt my mind racing to catch up, to understand. ‘Eyes Like Mine’ assails senses, stimulates thoughts and reasoning, and is a powerful, captivating read. ~ Liz Robinson

A girl, a teenager, with her eyes. How can she turn her back on her? But going in search of her daughter brings Nora into contact with a past that she would rather forget, a past that she has worked hard to put behind her, but which is always there, waiting for her ...
