On a sunny August morning, in 1935, 13-year-old Sophia Gray finds her friend Rosemary wandering in the woods. Rosemary’s yellow dress is tattered and stained, she walks with a strange lurch, and her eyes are vacant and glassy. She beckons to Sophia, desperate to show her something, and Sophia follows.
In an abandoned cabin, beneath a tattered blanket, Sophia discovers Rosemary’s body. It was not Rosemary who led her there, but Rosemary’s ghost.
Step into the Northern Michigan Asylum for the Insane
Twenty years after Sophia discovers Rosemary’s body, she finds herself trapped in the sprawling, and eerily beautiful, Northern Michigan Asylum for the Insane, in the hands of a malevolent doctor who preys on patients who exhibit paranormal abilities.

Some Can See weaves the past and present into a truly twisted, haunting tale that is a total mind warp. I am still trying to wrap my head around it all. To be honest it took several chapters for me to get into the story. With the author floating between multiple decades and several POV's it was a bit confusing and I was unsure where she was going with the story. However, around Chapter 10 or so it all came together and I was hooked. Erickson is a genius to have pulled this off.
The narrator, Allyson Voller, lends a unique voice to each character and took me on an emotional ride.
MEET THE AUTHOR
Like most writers, I have a million ideas competing for the page so rather than stifle any of that juicy creativity, I try to let it flow. Sometimes that includes painting in the bathtub with my toddler and other times it turns into actual words on a page. I was born and raised near Mason, Michigan, but I wandered to the north in my mid twenties and I have never looked back. These days, I pass my time in the Traverse City area with my fabulous excavator husband, our wild little boy, and our two crazy kitties, Beast and Mamoo.
