A spellbinding book about two very different sisters dwelling on opposite sides of life and death who bravely try to overcome the void and bring light to each other.
Adele Griffin’s Where I Want to Be introduces us to survivors of sorts months after a fatal crash; younger sister Lily, who although alive, is entombed by grief; Caleb, Lily’s steadfast boyfriend whose oddly colored eyes see beyond darkness; and deceased sister Jane, who clings to existence in being, place and memory. As both worlds, rendered equally real shift, Lily and Jane struggle to release the familiar and move on. This lithe and gorgeous novel deftly blends realm and reality.
