Book review: What You Never Knew by Jessica Hamilton

Friday, April 23, 2021 Permalink

What You Never Knew by Jessica Hamilton starts with something quite devastating. Thankfully we’re prepared because the backcover blurb clearly tells us we’re going to be meeting someone who dies, nevertheless I felt sad we lost May before getting to know her.

Sometimes books featuring narrators who have died can be a little morbid or overly wistful, Hamilton however manages to insert (the ghost or spirit of) May into her sister’s life in quite an unobtrusive way.
