What happens when you return to the real world after being in a fantastical one like Narnia? This YA debut by Laura E. Weymouth is perfect for fans of Melissa Albert's The Hazel Wood and Lev Grossman's The Magicians. Six years ago, sisters Evelyn and Philippa Hapwell were swept away to a strange and beautiful kingdom called the Woodlands, where they lived for years. But ever since they returned to their lives in post-WWII England, they have struggled to adjust. Ev desperately wants to return to the Woodlands, and Philippa just wants to move on. When Ev goes missing, Philippa must confront the depth of her sister's despair and the painful truths they've been running from. As the weeks unfold, Philippa wonders if Ev truly did find a way home, or if the weight of their worlds pulled her under. Walking the line between where fantasy and reality meet, this lyrical and magical novel is, above all else, an exploration of loss and healing, and what it means to find where you belong. This edition uses deckle edges; the uneven paper edge is intentional.… (mais)

DNF at about 75 pages. Not for me. ( )

This book shook me. It deals alot with PTSD and mental illness. It's about internal strength, the love between sisters, and how no one judges you as harshly as yourself. This after Narnia novel's sprinkling of magic balances perfectly with the darker themes and will follow me for days. I highly recommend. ( )

2½ ★ may seem harsh, but Laura Weymouth’s novel was too plodding and undeveloped for my tastes. The concept was brilliant, with having the 3 children whirled off to a different world, where they lived for a tumultuous period in that fantastic place. However, an excellent theme doesn’t make up for the prolonged misery that the reader has to wade through to the dénouement.

Towards the last half of the story, we hear Philippa’s story. I enjoyed this part of the narrative much more than the earlier developments with Evelyn. While Evie’s story was told with superb insights into such angst, it did not evolve into a meaningful resolution and ended rather lamely. And what of Jamie? His participation was rather poorly detailed, appearing at intervals driving around in his car, and propping up his sisters. ( )

What happened to Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy when they returned to England from Narnia? Laura Weymouth answers this question with new characters and a new world. But The Light Between Worlds is not a spinoff of C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles. It is a unique and beautifully told story of the fierce love between sisters and of choices and consequences. Evelyn and Philippa are swept into the fantastical Woodlands on one night of the London blitz. The story is told in two parts: one in Evie’s voice, the other in Philippa’s. I fell in love with Evie’s story. She feels more at home in the Woodlands than she ever did in England, as I feel more at home in the West than I did in New England. The sisters must each find their own way, and one’s choice gravely affects the other. Ms. Weymouth also introduces the reader to a variety of poets, in particular Sara Teasdale, by inserting poems at key points in the plot. For me, the theme of the story is in Evie’s words: “Every day is a treasure, every chance meeting a gift, and I will treat them as such …” May we all seek to live as fully. ( )

I had high hopes for this one but I didn't end up really liking it. It was pretty slow and dragged quite a bit. At first it reminded me almost exactly of the Narnia books, then as the story progressed it definitely got darker and more complex. I felt Phil was pretty selfish and annoying for the most part. My heart broke for poor Evie and the difficult time she was having. I did like the little bit of mystery that was included and the time period it was set. So overall it was a little better than just ok for me which is why I went ahead with 3 stars. ( )

Wherever I am, wherever my feet are planted, that is where I will make my life. I won't withdraw or put up walls. Every day is a treasure, every chance meeting a gift, and I will treat them as such until at last, my Woodlands heart finds its way home. (p. 21)
There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,

And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools singing at night,

And wild plum trees in tremulous white,

Robins will wear their feathery fire

Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire.

And not one will know of the war, not one

Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree

If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn,

Would scarcely know that we were gone.

-Sara Teasdale
