Ellen Sussman, author of The Paradise Guest House
Between the Covers welcomes Ellen Sussman, author of the new novel, The Paradise Guest House.
It starts as a trip to paradise. Sent on assignment to Bali, Jamie, an American adventure guide, is caught in Bali’s infamous nightclub bombings. One year later, haunted by memories, Jamie returns to Bali seeking a sense of closure. Most of all, she hopes to find Gabe, the man who helped save her.
The novel explores "what happens when the troubles of the world descend on paradise" and how humans must make peace with the realization that, "There is no paradise. There is no safety."
