Reaching for the Light by Jan Mitchell Rogers


A poignant family drama and redemptive ghost story. The invisible friend of a four-year-old child and a young clairvoyant help a family to come to terms with a twenty-five-year-old tragedy and finally move on with their lives

The Author
I was born in Essex but moved to Montgomeryshire in c1980. My love for this beautiful area has inspired my writing over the years but Reaching for the Light, my debut novel, was only

completed after retiring from the Hardware Shop I ran with my husband for 21 years. I joined a Creative Writing Group in 2019 which gave me the confidence to finish and publish the novel.


Due to my current personal circumstances I have not been able to complete reading this book. This is no reflection on the book, in any way. I will read and review it as soon as things are more settled. I thank you for your understanding.

Hi and welcome to my new blog. I’m reading and reviewing the books I read, after a long break I realised just how much I missed reviewing. I’ve been a voracious reader since childhood and I don’t imagine that changing. 
If you would like me to read and review a book you’re bringing out, please feel free to contact me. If it’s not my type of book I won’t waste your time by agreeing. I don’t promise 5 star reviews, and I know authors do appreciate feedback , but I can only promise an honest review. 
 Genres I love include crime, thriller, tartan noir is a stand out favourite. I do also enjoy horror, and other fiction/non fiction as they take my fancy. 
Please feel free to tell me if you have any recommendations for books to read whether they are already out or just about to. Reviews will be published on Twitter and Goodreads. Contact me here on the blog or email me at 
Many thanks 
for visiting! Angi
