For Faye, her mother's death was a sad, but well-hidden, part of life. She lived a content, uneventful childhood after Jeanie passed away, taken in by elderly neighbors down the street. She was cared for, even loved, by her guardians, but the loss of her mother was something Faye felt certain she's never truly comprehended. Until, as an adult, she stumbles upon a chance to see Jeanie again. A childhood toy box holds a portal allowing Faye to jump backward in time to interact with her mother, her caregivers, and even her childhood self. She knows it's illogical, but it's a gift she can't ignore. When her disappearances start becoming more noticeable, she has to spill her time-traveling secret. But does that mean losing Jeanie all over again? Fisher's debut is far from maudlin or moroseâit's a warm, witty, wholehearted glimpse inside a parallel universe. Genuine and touching, Fisher's narrative voice will appeal to fans of Kelly Harms, Lia Louis, and Julie Valerie. Exploring the power of believing in the impossible, Faye, Faraway is a delight.
