The things we left sleeping, by Kathryn Lund

Evie and Stevie share everything: a bed, their dingy flat above the kebab shop, Evie’s loving and normal parents Linda and Dave. But when Linda dies and Evie starts suffering from seizures, Evie and Stevie pull apart into separate, isolated worlds. Evie’s world looks like a farm: a black barn, a cold house where it is always snowing. Stevie’s world is full of problems she’s avoided and places she doesn’t want to return to. Yet she must if she is going to get to Evie and find a place where they can be together again.

Divided into two complimentary narratives, The Things We Left Sleeping by Kathryn Lund is about the journeys we make through grief and illness to get back to life.
