A poignant first novel set in contemporary Alaska, Gone Away is the Sun tells the story of Peter Crist and Oliver Anderson, best friends since boyhood, and Claire Knight, the woman who comes between them. When Peter, a charismatic photographer approaching the dark side of his twenties, returns from years abroad, the moment he lays eyes on Ollie's girlfriend he feels he cannot live without her. In his pursuit of Claire, as loyalties and desires realign, all three are changed irrevocably. When tragedy occurs in the seductive, but unforgiving Alaskan wilderness, they are forced to examine the meaning of love and regret, and take stock of who they've become. Have they made the right choices, or have their mistakes ruined them? Lisa Eisenrich's poetic use of language and metaphor carry the reader deeply into scenes of intimacy, rejection, loss, and resolution that mark the maturing of these unforgettable characters.
