Between is a adventurous metaphysical journey into worlds between what we know and what we think we know. It is about following the call of the unknown, the forces pulling us into the world with or without our knowing. It is about love, friends, family and the choices we make to become vulnerable and move closer to them or to put up walls and stay isolated.
Between is the story of seventeen-year-old Ila and how she becomes a participant and creator of her own story, not just a character. It is about her friends, Eve and Jay, and the crossroads they come to as they face the decision of participating in the way things have always been or creating new possibilities.
This story is about the continual morphing of our lives, the growing and stretching that occurs particularly at certain moments in our timeline. At the same time, it is about the unchanging essence of our inner compass and what we know to be ‘home.’
This novel, Between, is about the blending of things, the spaces in-between absolutes, the way between, and the connection of contrasting compliments. It is about letting go of what is no longer working and stepping into the unknown.
Ultimately, it is about sacrificing your sense of safety and security for the ones you love, your created or inherited family, and becoming more in the process.
