The Light Between Worlds
The Light Between Worlds | Laura E. Weymouth
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 Alberts The Hazel Wood and Lev Grossmans 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 sisters despair and the painful truths theyve 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.

I won the Libro.fm Summer Listening Challenge and got a year‘s worth of audiobook credits!!! 😭🤩 (I NEVER thought I would win this and just wanted an extra audiobook credit, so if you see an awful photo of me know I had worked 11 hours that day). Then I just bought YA Club titles anyway, because they were such a good deal. 3/4 of these titles I got on sale. 3/4 I have already read. 🤷‍♀️

Wish I could‘ve beaten my time from the last #24in48, but so much ended up happening this weekend 7 hours was the best I could‘ve done.
And unfortunately I‘m not really loving this book, so that may contribute to my lack of time.
But I‘m happy I did the challenge and am excited for the next one.

For those of you that love The Chronicles of Narnia, you will probably enjoy this. It takes the same idea of the story forward to a time after they come home and how two sisters adjust to being home, both opposite of the other. It is an interesting look at how one comes back to the normal after being in a magical land for a long time, but it just wasn‘t for me.

So I listened to this book on audio, driving to and from work. I LOVED the beginning, though at times I found the main character to be a bit whiny. Then, halfway through the book, narration switches over to the sister and that took me a while to get used to. I loved the idea and in the end it grew on me. There is a Narnian feel to it; brothers and sisters being pulled into another world during the war. I liked it a lot. I didn't love it.
⭐⭐⭐1/2

Another vacation read. YA. I loved the “other” world of The Woodlands. I so understood Evelyn‘s yearning to return having been unwilling taken back to her own world. Heartbreaking decisions. Best intentions. Exquisite language. A lovely book for our young readers who like Narnia and that genre. I enjoyed it very much.

This book was everything I needed it to be! I love stories about lost girls and this story about Evelyn and her siblings was just the sort of thing that might have happened to Lucy after going back through the Wardrobe.

Evie and her siblings grew up in the Woodlands only to find themselves back in the "real" world. Her sibs are happy to be back, but all Evie wants is to go home.

"A Woodlands heart always finds its way home..." ?

Wow. I know its still pretty early in the year, but this may be one of my favorites of 2019 so far! It was seriously amazing. I loved all the characters and the writing was just breathtaking. It reminded me a lot of the Wayward Children series by Seanan Mcguire, but in a YA setting. Definately worth checking out, especially if you're a person (like me) who dreams of other worlds! ???

erank58 I bought this because of the cover and ended up loving it! I'm normally not a YA fan but this one was special :) 10mo
Branwen @erank58 I totally agree! It really is special! I wasn't expecting it to be this incredible and it really blew me away! 😀 10mo

I enjoyed this book so much. The author understands sadness. She writes beautifully. The characters are well realized and complex. The story is toldfirst from the perspective of the younger sister and then from the perspective of the older sister. I was sad when it ended.

HOLY CRAP! I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK!I did not realize how much of a historical fiction it was going to be! I got some hardcore Narnia vibes but the POV and information given was actually quite different.We're not focusing on the magical world that changed you BUT how actions and events in life change people so permanently.

My favourite part? Definitely getting the point of view of Evelyn at the start and then her sister Philippa taking over.

Listening to the audiobook. Decided to read this thanks to an NPR book review. It‘s a story about those who dwell in the idyllic past, while others try to move forward. The Hapwell sisters are compelling and complex. The Narnia comparisons are inevitable, though, and I often can‘t help comparing the Woodlands to Narnia. However, it‘s the story of the return and adjustment (and lack of) that‘s the most thought-provoking.

A beautiful YA that crosses elements of Narnia, Hazel Wood, Bridge to Terabithia, and with a bit of the film Pan's Labryinth. During World War 2, three British siblings escape the air raids when they discover an enchanted realm called the Woodlands. Now returned to this reality post-War, one longs to go back.
