Wilderness by Lillie J. Harris explores the displacement and search of one’s home through paranormal senses, familial trauma, and werewolves. Roscoe works at a restaurant and is dealing with the trauma of an accident that took their arm. Beau and Ronny are siblings who deal with a supernatural affliction. Their stories intersect in a small rural town.
Wilderness vibrates with an emotional resonance, vibrant colors, and a living line. Lillie uses quiet moments to give their characters a lot of room to breathe, and a pacing that helps present the complex emotions behind the characters’ actions.
