Karen A. Wyle

Author Karen A. Wyleabout this book: Wander Home is about families and how they function: the love, the unhealed wounds, the hopes, the disappointments, and the will to forgive. Its details are hardly universal -- it takes place in an afterlife with features I imagined, and the solution to the underlying mystery is not a common one -- but the emotions and themes may strike a familiar chord.

As the book opens, the girl Cassidy -- one moment an adolescent, the next a toddler, her age shifting with her emotions -- learns that her mother Eleanor will be rejoining the rest of the family in the afterlife. How they were separated is revealed early on; the "why" consumes the rest of the book. Eleanor and her daughter, her parents, and her grandmother will have to overcome a lifetime of pain and bewilderment. But they are in the right place to do so.

I constructed this afterlife as a place ideally suited to celebrating life and resolving unfinished business. Based on early reviews, I'm not the only one to hope (somewhat wistfully) that it may bear some resemblance to what actually awaits us.
