"I Wish to Remain Vanishing"

The breathtaking, lyrical story of Lilia and those who search for her begins and ends in Montreal, a cold city fiercely guarding its language. Lilia is someone who is constantly vanishing and those who love her are always looking for her. The search has enriched some lives and ruined others. As the book reveals more about Lilia's secrets, the reader is drawn in tighter, wanting, needing to know why she leaves and what she's running from. An interesting take on non-custodial parent abduction, it's impossible to have black and white feelings about Lilia's life.
The characters are rich and memorable, the prose is descriptive and evocative and the story line is captivating. A stunning debut novel.
