      “In Weymouth’s story, the Hapwell siblings have returned to a barely post-World War II England from a magical realm called the Woodland. Youngest sibling Evelyn can’t find home in the world to which she was born, while her older sister Philippa dives headfirst into her old life to escape the world she left behind. Told from both sisters’ perspectives, The Light Between Worlds is a lyrical exploration of one’s true place—among the people we love, within ourselves, or in woodland realms beyond our ken—and the lengths we will go to chase it.”

      “The Narnia archetype of children finding passage to an adjacent world is given a powerful new perspective in The Light Between Worlds, a rare book whose internal clarity challenges the reader to assess the meaning of our attachments to fantasy worlds. An absolute sense of belonging to another place comes with a dark price for Evelyn once she is returned to the familiar world, while her sister, Phillipa, paid a different price for her lack of adherence. This is a book whose resolution will linger long in a reader’s heart and mind. Exceptional!”
