Synopsis: One sister tries to solve the puzzle of her lost sister in several possible realities.

Review:  Beautifully written, but its dreamy touch led into nirvana, didn’t quite work for me, it left me… puzzling – which might be a good thing, because the story lasted. The literary experiment with stream of consciousness and interleaved realities weaving forward and backward in time was interesting and deserved one additional star.
