Karen A. Wyle, author of sf novel TWIN-BRED and novel WANDER HOME
In WANDER HOME, a family drama with mystery elements, a family reunites in a re-imagined afterlife to try to heal old wounds, resolve unfinished business, and uncover the reason behind the event that shaped their lives.
TWIN-BRED addresses the question: can interspecies diplomacy begin in the womb? . . .
Death is what you make it. . . .
Eleanor never wanted to leave the daughter she loved so much. The overpowering urge to wander -- to search, without knowing what she sought -- drove her away. She left little Cassidy in her family's loving care. But Cassidy and the others died in an accident before Eleanor could find her way home.
Now, they are all reunited, in an afterlife where nothing is truly lost. Places once loved may be revisited, memories relived or even shared. One may be any age suitable to the mood and moment. Surely this is a place where Eleanor and her family can understand and heal. And yet, the restlessness that shaped Eleanor's life still haunts her in death. Somehow, she must solve the mystery of her life -- or none of them will be at peace.
