A Lily in the Light by Kristin Fields

Esme lives ballet, and completely immerses herself after her little sister goes missing, becoming a professional ballerina. When her older sister calls with an astonishing update, Esme returns to her family to reconnect and start the healing process. Fields leads the reader through the mine field that is a family after a child is taken, focusing on the breakout child, the sister with talent in dance, and the opportunities opening up to forge her success. “What ifs” haunt Esme, and she feels isolated by her family’s perspective of her. The writing flows gently through the tension and the pain, coming to a screeching halt with the revelation that changes everything. Fans of Liane Moriarty, Diane Chamberlain, and Kerry Ann King will appreciate this novel and author.
