Where the Light Gets In 

Zoë Coyle

For anyone who has ever loved and lost, and dared to rise again

Delphi Hoffman, a wildchild living in London, is finally getting her 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 Vivien’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 of family 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 her mother’s life ends and she begins amidst the atomic fallout her actions have unleashed.

Incandescent and extraordinary, Where the Light Gets In heralds the arrival of a powerful new voice in Australian fiction.
