The Light Between Worlds by Laura E. Weymouth
Their stories are told from two viewpoints; first by Evelyn and then by older sister Philippa. I found the first part to be slower and harder to enjoy. She was really struggling and not in a good frame of mind. Evelyn was so young when their adventure began, and grew into an adult while in the Woodlands. During those formative years she formed bonds with the residents there that she could never break loose of.
I was very moved by Philippa's dedication to her sister. There was nothing she wouldn't do for Evelyn to keep her happy and safe. It's been a long time since a work of fiction had me crying for characters chapter after chapter.
This book should appeal to older teens as well as adult readers.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book from Indigo Books & Music Inc., in exchange for an honest review.
