Where We Live
The third and final novel in the Lund sibling series, Where We Live continues the story of four Vancouverites, separated in childhood, reunited and now middle-aged, as they navigate urban life, work, relationships, and parenting in the late 2010s. With their familial bond shaped by their divergent adult experiences as well as their shared early childhood in a rural West Coast community, the lives of these siblings cross, separate, and rejoin yet again, in paths informed by nature and by nurture. Subject to the pressures of their environment and remembered or forgotten family history each sibling struggles to realize their aspirations in their search for a true home.
“Where We Live is a deeply gratifying conclusion to the Lund family saga. Karen Hofmann is at her very best; her prose moves with remarkable grace, illuminating the complex inner lives of her characters, who reflect back to us profound truths about aging, parenthood, grief, betrayal, and desire. While each of the characters ultimately finds their own sense of home, they also come away transformed, on the precipice of something new and full of possibility. You’ll leave this novel bursting with hope.”
