Death is what you make it. . . .Eleanor never wanted to leave the daughter she loved so much. The overpowering urge to wander -- to search, without knowing what she sought -- drove her away. She left little Cassidy in her family's loving care. But Cassidy and the others died in an accident before Eleanor could find her way home. Now, they are all reunited, in an afterlife where nothing is truly lost: places once loved may be revisited, memories relived and even shared. Surely this is a place where they can understand and heal. And yet, the restlessness that shaped Eleanor's life still haunts her in death. Somehow, she must solve the mystery of her life -- or none of them will be at peace.… (mais)

This was a truly fascinating story about the afterlife. It had wonderful details of relationships, love, fear, hope and wonderment. All of this and with a wonderful spin on things. It was very well written and the characters came to life on the page. I really enjoyed reading this book but was hoping for answers on how some of the characters came to be there. All in all, I would definitely recommend it! ( )

This was an interesting and new concept, showing an afterlife in which you are able to change your age and surroundings in a moment. Unfortunately this meant it took me a significant section of the book to really get my head around it and into the story, so I did not really enjoy the beginning of the book. As the story progressed and I became more used to the ideas behind the book, I did find I enjoyed it more, but I never truly reached a point where I didn't let go of the strangeness of the concept. I still found it a good read, but was't swept away with the story in the way of a truly enjoyable book. ( )

This story takes place in an idea of the afterlife. In this place, we can choose what age we want to be, what we want to wear, where we want to go. I found it to be an awesome idea, and what I hope it is like. All you need is a memory to re-create whatever you want, even if it is a shared memory from someone else.
The main character is Eleanor. She is met in the afterlife by her parents, grandmother and daughter. Eleanor has always had a hard time settling down. From a young age she knew she wanted a child, but never wanted to stay with any man. This gives way for a mystery in the story, though I did predict what was going on, relatively early on. However, the book was still enjoyable.
This would make a good summer read. The characters were likable, the premise was unique and I found it easy to follow. I would likely read another novel by Wyle. ( )

Eleanor's story was presented through the view of the afterlife. She was able to change ages as quickly as a memory was remembered. I enjoyed this story although it was different from anything I have read before. It was throughfully written and it was easy to relate to the characters. I would read from this author again. ( )

I really enjoyed this, overall. Wyle's writing style is very clean. It's descriptive and evocative, but not florid.

There were a few spots where I think I would have connected with the characters more if she had toned down the presentation of her afterlife. The fluidity of appearances/settings sometimes made it a bit harder to bond with the reality of the interactions. That same mechanism, though, showed off the beauty of Wyle's writing, and lent an interesting edge to what could have been a saccharine story of redemption.

The story was the weakest part of this, to me. It felt like she couldn't decide which direction to take it in, so some aspects of the core conflict, particularly in the last act, did not feel organic. It felt a bit too narrow to be effective as a mystery novel, but not quite connected enough to be a gripping romance. Maybe I just wished it would have been darker. I think there was some real potential for supernatural suspense and conflict in the last act, that was never quite capitalized on, and would have created more tension prior to her ending.

Wyle's strength is in her scene-building. Her locations are absolutely stunningly executed. I would love to see her build the nuance of her dialogue a bit more, to provide that same attention to detail to the characters individual voices. Despite a few flaws though, this is a very well written novel, and sure to resonate with readers who like just a little supernatural tension, and stories of destined happy endings.
