“Beautiful and unsettling, Elsewhere is a novel I can't stop thinking about. Not usually one for dystopian fiction, I started listening and soon was captivated by this haunting, cloud-covered place and close-knit community from which women occasionally disappear. (Ell Potter's narration perfectly captures its eerie atmosphere.) The families who live here wonder about the world beyond, known only as 'Elsewhere,' especially when a stranger comes to visit. But, no matter how uncertain the future is for mothers in this place, they wouldn't consider leaving. Why, you'll wonder, as you're drawn in by the mystery of this place and its people. How deep is devotion, and much should motherhood require of a woman? I can imagine book clubs debating this one at length!”Lady, The Snail on the Wall
