—Celeste Ng, New York Times best-selling author of Little Fires Everywhere and Everything I Never Told You
A dazzling novel of two sisters and their emotional journey through love, loyalty, and heartbreak
Two 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 their mother dies and Lucia starts hearing voices, it is Miranda who must find a way to reach her sister. But Lucia impetuously plows ahead, marrying a bighearted, older man only to leave him, suddenly, to have a baby with a young Latino immigrant. She moves her new family from the States to Ecuador and back again, 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?
Told in alternating points of view, Everything Here Is Beautiful is, at its heart, the story of 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.

What a beautiful story. Having loved someone with a mental illness it was so “on point” from the family perspective. Touching, hopeful, realistic, sad but true. This is life.

Gorgeous writing/real characters
They way she wove the characters lives together was stunning. Loved every word. I never have read a book so fast. I want to read it again.
