Through a series of flashbacks, it is revealed that Dani and Ell’s marriage may have been fractured long before Ell left for Alaska. Helping Dani face her new reality, her mother, Char, and sister, Kat, – each with their own demons – try to convince Dani to return to her life. But Dani doesn’t quite know what that means without Ell and struggles to define herself and her life without him.
FAR FROM HERE is a touching story about marriage and family. Dani’s struggles with her future are realistically imagined. There is no doubt that the answers are not easy, and for Dani, they’re made more difficult by her own lack of identity. This was an interesting, thought provoking novel that will haunt readers long after they’ve finished the story.
