Shine A Light is a work of non-fiction in the true-life drama subgenre. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Corrine Wilson. The book tells the true story of Corrine and Ingrid, who sit on either side of the dark history of South Africa. However, during an expedition to rescue vulnerable animals in Cape Town, they slowly learn about each other and realize their similarities. As they meet the animals who need their help and the humans behind them, Ingrid helps Corrine confront her preconceptions about the world and the harsh realities faced by the people living in it.
I’m always in awe of autobiographical writers who are able to bare their souls so deeply and so openly that the ensuing written work they create becomes an unmissable and thought-provoking journey into an experience I couldn’t imagine sharing any other way. Such a writer is Corrine Wilson, who vividly relives an important formative experience from her own life in which her perspective is challenged repeatedly through her relationship with Ingrid and interactions with the people that society usually ignores. There’s an important message in Corrine’s journey that she explores beautifully throughout Shine A Light, a message of unity and looking past the things that divide us to identify what makes us all one species. It’s only through recognizing that humans can celebrate their cultural differences whilst remembering that we are all one people that we can begin the work of making life better for all, and Corrine Wilson’s writing is a furthering of that goal.
