Alice, Griffin, and Dinah Stenen's mother and father died tragically when they were quite young. The loss haunts them into adulthood. Alice is a stage actress in New York who can't commit to a relationship. When she meets Ian she's smitten, but suspects it's Ian's four-year-old son that really captivates her. Griffin and his longtime partner are settled into a contented domesticity, however Theo's insistence that they adopt a child throws Griffin into a panic. When he refuses to cooperate, the crack in their relationship widens. Dinah, the youngest, has a short, passionate love affair that leaves her pregnant and alone when she discovers the father is engaged to someone else. The three look to each other for support during this rough period but they falter. What they don't know is that their parents are watching them from a place outside time and space--worrying, reminiscing, and perhaps guiding their children as each makes their tentative way towards happiness. In luminous prose, Cook tells the story of these tender souls and a love that knows no boundaries.

Praise for Outside Wonderland

"Lorna Cook has created a lovely heartfelt world where life often gets in the way of finding happiness. You will fall in love with these characters."

--Kristin Hannah, New York Times bestselling author of Winter Garden

"From the very opening pages of Lorna Jane Cook's gorgeous OUTSIDE WONDERLAND, you realize two things: that you are in the hands of a strong, gifted writer and that you should prepare yourself for ANYTHING to happen in this original, poetic, and riveting story. Those two realizations are affirmed again and again, even to the final page—which I hesitated to turn because I did not want this book to end."

—Katrina Kittle, author of The Blessings of the Animals and The Kindness of Strangers
