About the Book

Elsey Come Home

When Elsey's husband, Lukas, hands her a brochure for a weeklong mountain retreat, she knows he is really giving her an ultimatum: Go, or we’re done. Once a successful painter, Elsey set down roots in China after falling in love with Lukas. Now, with two young daughters and unable to find a balance between her identities as artist, mother and wife, Elsey fills her days worrying, drinking and descending into boredom and unhappiness. So she agrees to go. There, she meets a group of men and women who will forever alter the way she understands herself, and help her to finally embark on a journey to address her own pain and find her way back to her marriage. 

Written in a voice at once wry, sensual, blunt and hypnotic, ELSEY COME HOME is a modern odyssey and a quietly dynamic portrait of contemporary womanhood.
