Nathan is gifted (or perhaps cursed) with the "Sight" which enables him to foresee things that are going to happen to him and those around him. But knowing what is coming doesn't always mean he can stop or change what is meant to be, especially at such a tender age.
Very well written. T.R. Braxton takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. The details of the scenes in this book made me feel like I was right there experiencing what young Nathan was experiencing.
Can't wait to read what T. R. Braxton comes up with next.
I think that this was a very tightly written book. Everything was included for a reason with no unnecessary bits. A lot happened even though it isn't a very long book. I really appreciate that tightness. I thought that the lead characters, Nathan, James, Naomi, and Miss Ruth were all interesting and well written characters. The other more minor characters were not nearly as dimensional, but they didn't really need to be as this was mostly Nathan's story. I enjoyed the way the Paranormal bits were portrayed. All in all, I quite enjoyed reading it.
I only have a minor nitpick. The story does have a few timelines that it jumps between. For the most part I really enjoyed getting the backstory as it was relevant, however in the first couple of chapters it switches very fast and often. I would have just liked a little more time between jumps as the story got started, but this did not take away from my enjoyment of the book. Just a matter of taste. My other negative point has nothing to do with the author or the content of the story, but rather the book itself. The pages in most books are an off white or slightly beige to help counteract eye strain. These pages are stark white and I did end up taking longer than normal to finish the book because I often had to take breaks due to eye fatique and blurriness.
I would recommend this for fans of Paranormal or Historical Fiction.
James Walker comes to the realization that his son is different than most children. James tries to understand the abilities that his son possesses even though they make him feel uncomfortable. James decides to acquire help for his son while pursuing the opening and running of his grocery store. When the family is hit with a sudden tragedy, Nathan's behavior changes and nothing will ever be the same for the Walkers.
Sight is about history, family and the powerful abilities that a young boy possesses. This book will surprise readers from its slow beginning to its overwhelming ending. While reading this book I felt anger and sadness while being excited to reach the end of the book. The author did a wonderful job keeping me just as curious as Nathan about the wonders of his abilities. I recommend Sight to others.

Sight is an interesting tale about the extraordinary gifts of a young boy. T.R. Braxton did a good job with showing how Nathan's skills developed and how it changed the lives of his family forever. The storyline and scenes are very vivid and keeps you glued to the pages. You see the growth of Nathan throughout this story as well. There is a constant switching back and forth from the past to the present in this novel, which made it a little confusing to read. It would have been better if Braxton just had the story flow naturally from past to present instead of stopping the action to jump back into the past or vice versa. Sight is still an engaging novel for those that want something different.
There is a lot going on in this book- a lot of very enthralling, entertaining things. It is full of suspense, heartwarming moments and all around creepiness. I highly recommend this book!
