I have just started reading this novel and just wanted to briefly give you a description on this book as so far, it is a book I have fallen in love with. 

About the Book 

The Rules of Seeing No 399: Learning to see is often a thankless task. Then, sometimes, the world opens up and you understand nothing will ever look the same again. 

Nova, an interpreter for the Metorpolitan police, has been blind from birth. When she undergoes surgery to restore her sight her journey is just beginning- she now has to face a world in full colour for the first time. Kate, a successful architect and wife to Tony, is in hospital after a blow to the head. There, she meets Nova and what starts as a beautiful friendship soon turns into something more.
