Where the Light Gets In 

Zoë Coyle

This is a novel about hope, grief and grace for anyone who has ever loved, lost, felt alone and broken, but dared to rise from the ashes

What’s more powerful – the right to life or the right to love? 


Delphi Hoffman, a wildchild living in London is finally getting her somewhat deliciously messy life together with a new love affair and the offer of a coveted job – until she receives the phone call she hoped would never arrive. 

‘It’s time.’

Her mother Inica’s terminal illness has reached its tipping point and she summons Delphi to Australia to help her euthanise. Unable to deny her mother’s suffering, or her promise to her of a good death, Delphi reluctantly returns to her mother for the last time.

This is a story of the ties that enmesh in love and death, and the journey back to self in its aftermath. As Delphi is blown onto the wasteland of grief and shame, she has to discover where life ends and she begins amidst the atomic fallout her actions have unleashed.
