How do you describe "Elsewhere"? A novel so astoundingly original and carefully crafted that its complexities become common place and the common place resounds with poetry!

In this delightful novel death is a beginning, a new start.

Liz is killed in a hit a run accident and her 'life' takes a very unexpected turn.

At nearly sixteen she knows she will never get married, never have children, and perhaps never fall in love.

But in "Elsewhere" all things carry on almost as they did on earth except that the inhabitants get younger, dogs and humans can communicate (at last) new relationships are formed and old ones sadly interrupted on earth are renewed.

Fully of the most ingenious detail and woven around the most touching and charming relationships this is a novel of hope, of redemption and re-birth.

It is a novel that tells of sadness with heart-breaking honesty and of love and happiness with uplifting brilliance.
