I See You Everywhere
By Julia Glass

Fiction 2008

Two sisters, Clem and Louisa Jardine, as different as night and day, go their separate ways until their lives converge in this touching story. Louisa lives in the New York City art world and Clem lives in the wilderness saving endangered animals, but this book is mostly about "what we can and cannot do for the ones we love." Louisa had breast cancer, but Clem dies first, by her own hand, and the fallout from her suicide will stay with the reader long after finishing the book.
