When Lucia starts hearing voices, it is Miranda who must find a way to reach her sister. Lucia impetuously plows ahead, but the bitter constant is that she is, in fact, mentally ill. Lucia lives life on a grand scale, until, inevitably, she crashes to earth. Miranda leaves her own self-contained life in Switzerland to rescue her sister again-but only Lucia can decide whether she wants to be saved. The bonds of sisterly devotion stretch across oceans-but what does it take to break them? Everything Here Is Beautiful is, at its heart, an immigrant story, and a young woman´s quest to find fulfillment and a life unconstrained by her illness. But it´s also an unforgettable, gut-wrenching story of the sacrifices we make to truly love someone-and when loyalty to one´s self must prevail over all.
