Back of the Book: Six years ago, sisters Evelyn and Philippa Hapwell were swept away to a strange and beautiful kingdom called the Woodlands, where they lived for years. But ever since they returned to their lives in post-WWII England, they have struggled to adjust.
Ev desperately wants to return to the Woodlands, and Philippa just wants to move on. When Ev goes missing, Philippa must confront the depth of her sister’s despair and the painful truths they’ve been running from. As the weeks unfold, Philippa wonders if Ev truly did find a way home, or if the weight of their worlds pulled her under.
Walking the line between where fantasy and reality meet, this lyrical and magical novel is, above all else, an exploration of loss and healing, and what it means to find where you belong.
My Thoughts: So i totally forgot i even owned this book… i got this sometime ago from bookoutlet and then forgot about it. Thanks to READ YOUR BOOKSHELF by Chantel Reads All Day for the February’s choice as i ended up using this book for that prompt and of course read it.
Going into this i had to get use to it as it had two timelines one from the past and one from the current time BUT then the past was from a fantasy world and the current is of the real world, so you see i needed to fully take my time to understand how this was working. (could be one reason for my rating)
Laura indeed took the time to add in so much emotions it was heartwarming, beautiful and magical. Please read the Contain Warnings before actually going into this.

NOW……. i don’t have many issues with this book and personally what i am about to say is not an issue it is WHY i said to check the triggers before you read……. I did not, during one of my live streams i was reading this and it was close to the end, i literally for 20 mins of that one reading sprint had to put the book down and do something else because there was apart where there had some self harming and well that was a bit of a trigger for me. Even while writing this i feel my stomach tighen a bit. I understand the point of putting this in for the story but some people (me) would have some hard hitting moments for it. (might also be another reason for my rating)
