Sweet, shy, and a bit reclusive, Andie has enough phobias to confirm that she's "crazy." A popular high-school teacher, Errol bears his own "imperfection," which makes him more sympathetic to Andie's disability. Despite the challenges their relationship faces, they decide to take a chance on each other...and the possibility of a future together.Then Andie starts hearing a voice and dreaming about "Noah," whom she encounters on a mystical tropical island. The handsome stranger--who claims to know Andie--dismays her at first, and then fascinates her. She begins having visions of Noah and traveling in her mind to the island, where she discovers unexpected connections and a sense of inner peace. Errol's haunting dreams about the island and Noah's obsession with Andie only add to the mystery of what's happening...Is Noah a figment of Andie's imagination? Or does he exist in an alternate reality? More important, can Errol save Andie from Noah and the idyllic world she's escaped to? Or will he lose her to her phantom lover, forever?...

Elsewhere is one of the best reads I've had in a long time! The character development of Andie and Errol was so vivid. They're the kind of characters that you'll miss once the book ends! The story line is unusual and intriguing. It kept me guessing at every turn. It's the kind of book you just can't put down. Linda Williams is a wonderful storyteller. I can't wait to read her next novel!
I have read one of Linda Lee Williams' books before so I went into this with certain expectations. I have to say that Williams did not disappoint. The book was well-researched and carefully planned. There were no holes in this story. I came up for air afterwards completely satisfied.Andie, the main character, is a clever, yet innocent young woman who develops a crush on her neighbor. Deep down, she does not believe that being with him is possible because of her mental health issues. Andie is schizophrenic. But, she finds a kindred spirit in Errol, who suffers from his own deformity. Errol is completely enamored of Andie from day one.As they grow closer, a happy ending looms before them, despite Andie's misgivings. It is pretty evident that two people were never more fated to be together than Andie and Errol. But, things are not always as they seem. Andie's psychosis begins to affect her relationship with Errol in the form of dreams and flashbacks. Andie finds an imaginary lover, Noah, who is perfect and he takes her to a world where she doesn't have to worry about her schizophrenia or disappointing people.The author further develops the mystery by making it clear that perhaps it really isn't Andie's mind that is the enemy, but other forces at work. Errol works to bring her back to the present.This story, with its twists, turns and compelling drama, will have you scratching your head, and praying that things between Andie and Errol get resolved. Williams certainly knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat. She is an amazing storyteller. Read this book. It will hook you from page one.
4.5 Lightning bolts! Starting a new relationship is difficult as it is, but what happens when the obstacles are even more stacked against you?For Errol and Andie, they both feel there are plenty of obstacles. Neither could be described as perfect, though to each other, they are more than enough. I've got to give many, many, many (Yes, You can tell I needed to emphasize that, didn't you?) kudos to Linda Lee Williams. Writing characters with a disability, let alone making them main characters, can be a difficult talk but I feel she did it very well. Both Errol and Andie are very complex characters that I'm sure took a lot of thought and research into, especially Andie. As a person with my own imperfections, and who tends to hide away from the world, I found myself easily relating to both of them, especially Andie.I love her bluntness at times. it's so cute and funny and she doesn't realize how amazing she really is. But I can understand her fears. She doesn't want to drive anyone away and her worry about love is so deep it's heartbreaking. And Errol, talk about a dedicated man. He accepts Andie for exactly who she is. he may not understand everything she goes through or says, but that man wants nothing more than to be at Andie's side through everything.I loved reading their getting to know each other. The building relationship between them is an instant liking and throughout the book only grew stronger as they begin to give into their feelings.Then things get really intense when Andie's dreams spiral out of control. Whew! Talk about some tension! The pages flew even faster from there!Elsewhere is a remarkable story. The characters are ones I won't forget anytime soon. It's unique, a nice refreshing change from some of the similar stories out there. This isn't a story about perfect, wonderful heroes and heroines that have minor challenges, no, these are huge obstacles, and yet, it can ring true to real life too. Everyone needs love, and Linda Lee Williams shows us the trials and tribulations of a relationship through the eyes of two characters that don't, and have never had it easy. I'm very much looking forward to more works from this author. Bravo!
What a wonderful story of perfect love with two perfect people dealing with their own imperfections. Of course a reader would fall in love with Errol. He is so good and kind and loving. But I fell in love with Andie, too. She is a beautiful person trying to live a normal life with an abnormal brain. Both Andie and Errol have dealt with rejection and ridicule in their pasts, and finding each other is a blessing as well as an emotional challenge. I couldn't put this book down and I didn't want the story to end. Loved it!
A different type of love story Very intriguing and emotional.It was hard to put downI received a copy of this book n exchange for a honest review.
I loved this story. The love that conquered all was an amazing and unexpected treat! I'll read anything author Linda Lee Williams writes.
A different kind of readA different kind of readis it a romance ?A paranormal book? If you read this I'm sure you will find it's so much more.Andie is an orphan plagued by schizophrenia and Errol is a high school teacher born with one arm smaller than the other.How they come to meet and overcome the overwhelming odds against them is what makes this book special and you can't label that."This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review."
This was such an intriguing and unusual read for me- a fairytale love story where love conquers all. I felt like the book was well researched especially on the topic of schizophrenia which made me very fascinated with the character Andie and her lovers Errol and Noah. A very compelling read indeed and the story line was wrapped up nicely.. no loose ends.
This is an excellent book that deals with people having disabilities. It was very well written and tugged at my heart strings. Good job.
