Selena and Julie are sisters. As children they were closest companions, but as they grow towards maturity, a rift develops between them. There are greater rifts, however. Julie goes missing at the age of seventeen. It will be twenty years before Selena sees her again. When Julie reappears, she tells Selena an incredible story about how she has spent time on another planet. Selena has an impossible choice to make: does she dismiss her sister as a damaged person, the victim of delusions, or believe her, and risk her own sanity in the process? Is Julie really who she says she is, and if she isn't, what does she have to gain by claiming her sister's identity?

The Rift is a novel about the illusion we call reality, the memories shared between people and the places where those memories diverge, a story about what might happen when the assumptions we make about the world and our place in it are called into question.

Reviews for Rift

Moving, subtle, and ambiguous, this is a good pick for literary-sf fans - Booklist a reminder that upheaval is rarely resolved so easily as in books, that human relationships can often be messy, complicated, and unresolvable things Barnes & Noble SFF blog an exceptionally rich, haunting and immersive reading experience that will linger on your mind for a long time after you've finished reading it Rising Shadow a lot of fun concepts here and a fully crafted alien world Sciencefiction.com worth the read Gamers Sphere The Rift will appeal to any science-fiction lover. It's well written and surprising in a way that many of the clumsier science-fiction stories today aren't. As the story delves deeper into fantastical territory, it might be off-putting to some. Nonetheless, for those willing to remain with the story until the end, it is worth the investment. Through the unbelievable and the disturbing, the book maintains a level of practicality that is refreshing. - Portland Book Review
