About the Book

Everything Here Is Beautiful

A dazzling novel of two sisters and their emotional journey through love, loyalty and heartbreak

Two Chinese-American sisters --- Miranda, the older, responsible one, always her younger sister’s protector; Lucia, the headstrong, unpredictable one, whose impulses are huge and, often, life changing. When Lucia starts hearing voices, it is Miranda who must find a way to reach her sister. Lucia impetuously plows ahead, but the bitter constant is that she is, in fact, mentally ill. Lucia lives life on a grand scale, until, inevitably, she crashes to earth.
Miranda leaves her own self-contained life in Switzerland to rescue her sister again --- but only Lucia can decide whether she wants to be saved. The bonds of sisterly devotion stretch across oceans --- but what does it take to break them?
EVERYTHING HERE IS BEAUTIFUL is, at its heart, an immigrant story, and a young woman’s quest to find fulfillment and a life unconstrained by her illness. But it’s also an unforgettable, gut-wrenching story of the sacrifices we make to truly love someone --- and when loyalty to one’s self must prevail over all.
