About the Author
Katie Khan is a writer from London whose first novel, Hold Back the Stars, was published to great acclaim, translated into twenty-two languages, and is being adapted into a feature film.
The Light Between Us is her second novel.
This is a love story with a time travel twist. But it is also a tribute to and celebration of female friendship. Like the very best girl gangs, Thea and her friends constantly give each other a hard time and call each other out for poor behaviour. But they are also unquestioningly supportive and loving.
Khan writes, in the dedication to this novel, that ‘the best friendships can feel like falling in love’; it is this tribute that makes the book so much more than a conventional love story.

I thought this book was great. There's a lot of scientific explanations and theories going on but through the character of Isaac, you understand what is happening and it really makes you think. All the characters are multi-dimensional and each one leaps of the pages as you read. Without giving too much of the plot away, once the time-travelling begins, it really ramps up a gear. The themes explored about love and falling in love really hit home. I would highly recommend this book.
I enjoyed and could follow all of the time jumping, I was however left hanging about the painting of the unknown woman - this was just left as a major thread hanging without a satisfying resolution. It meant I couldn't accept any of the other time travel explanations.
The Margaret Beaufort potted history went nowhere, it was an odd piece of Tudor history to slot into Thea's story.
I did enjoy the Isaac / Thea love story but got a little confused when the two Thea's were involved in the same world.
The friends characters were not consistent throughout either, the reluctant friend/experiment helpers were then happy to rush into more time travel after Rosy got lost and without hearing Thea's break throughs.
All in all too many questions unanswered/plot leaps for me.
