LoveReading Says

An emotionally astute and provocative speculative romance set in Singapore detailing the connection between a photographer from the 1920’s, and a modern day archivist. Two people separated by decades begin a conversation and fall in love. Author Elaine Chiew’s debut The Heartsick Diaspora contained thought-provoking short stories highlighting what it is to be an expatriate or migrant in different countries around the world. She was born in Malaysia, and has lived in the US, UK, and is now based in Singapore. In the Light Between Us she spins a number of plates with aplomb, focusing on the intimate connection, delving into history, featuring the nature of displacement and of the occupation of lands, examining what it is to be family, and exploring a sense of time travel. While a number of themes swirl through the pages, there is a cohesion, a sense of connectivity from beginning to end. The element of fantasy is handled beautifully, it feels extraordinary but authentic and touchable. A huge amount of research has obviously been completed, and the author explains her fascination in this time in history at the end. Both heartfelt and poignant The Light Between Us is a captivating and intriguingly different relationship story.
